Crytek loves free-to-play, can’t wait to be exclusive

The studio responsible for Far Cry and the Crysis series is possibly already preparing the transition from a retail company to a free-to-play developer. It’s just a matter of completing the current contracts for other publishers: Crysis 3 for Electronic Arts, Ryse for Microsoft and Homefront 2 for THQ. (Crysis 3, Homefront: The Revolution, PC, PS3, Ryse: Son of Rome, Warface, Xbox 360)

I think they will creatively shine when they go free to play.

Indie artists who are starting from bottom know what Im talking about

I agree. Free from the strict demands of a global publisher they may aim for another level of creativity.

crytek loves everything that makes money for others. I think they need to focus on what they do for once.

Good Riddance.

Only mediocre developers are forced into Free To Play. It means they can't make a $60 products worth buying.

I don't think that's the case. It's more of a parallel business opportunity for many developers than the only escape. Surely Ubisoft isn't developing F2P Ghost Recon Online because they don't think that Splinter Cell: Blacklist or Watch Dogs have any chances of being successful, right?

That's not true Valve is making DOTA2 F2P and that company produced many hits
