Crytek's in deep s*** right now.

XiSasukeUchiha739d ago

Deeper than Might guy's eye brow lol :p

On topic: Damn Crytek is screwed!

johndoe11211738d ago

I swear, three quarters of the time I have no idea what you're talking about.

Starbucks_Fan738d ago

Most Naruto fanboys are like that

assdan738d ago

Yeah... it's looking like Crytek might going bust...

They will let them rot before moving in and buy them dirt cheap. Rest assured keen eyes are watching them, fully prepared to swoop in at the right time.

E.g. 1)MS just made some room after closing that Xbox entertainment studio, further strengthening their new found focus on games...

2) Ubisoft really needs a top tier shooter if they ever hope to go against Activision and EA. Crytek's Crysis and tech know-how would do them wonders on that front.

assdan736d ago

MS would be stupid to not buy them.

I laugh so HARD at this!

Crytek totally bad mouthed the PC Gamer community even though we bought 4 million units of Crysis and another 2 million units of Crysis Warhead.

Crytek jumped on the console bandwagon and started kissing consolers butts and saying "Oh we love consoles because they will give us a chance to make more money" even though these CLOWNS made a KILLING on Crysis 1 PC.

Now look at Crytek, bankrupt and with game sales that NEVER EVER measured up to what Crysis sold on PC ALONE.

Hell Crysis 2 and 3 on 360/ps3 combined isn't even close to the PC Exclusive.

So all the head honchos (RATS) are jumping the sinking Crytek ship. LOL

Let this be a another lesson for you Devs out there. Ditching the PC in favor of the consoles is NOT always a good idea.

If the PC Gamers made you rich then you better stick with them because the grass is NOT always greener on the other side.

Now I only have a few minor issues with a PC dev going multiplat (just look at how the Mighty Battlefield Series has fallen thanks to making console versions) but if a dev is gonna go multiplat then at least make your game PC first and with PC Gamer style gameplay then port down as not to ruin the game for PC gamers.

Just see the The Witcher Series or The Elder Scrolls series as a good example.

Nadella talked about aquisitions but not sure if crytek will be a good purchase. They could aquire a part of the studio or just handpick a few good talent to form a new team within MS but most importantly Phil better get the rights to Ryse asap. I need to play a sequel.

Dlacy13g739d ago

I think the purchase of Crytek specifically hinges on how good MS feels the Cryengine actually is. I believe Lionhead is currently using for Fable Legends. If they felt it was really that good I could see them buying possibly even start offering the engine as a MS service offering. But that also is a big long shot right now.

@Dlacy13g
Fable Legends is using UE4 like a lot of MS titles, Also help with an implementation for Global illumination https://www.unrealengine.co...

@christocolus

Well point sadly it's best anyone wanting anything from crytek to wait it out then full swoop vulture it out.

AgentSmithPS4739d ago

Mike's leaving has hurt the rabbits the most.

I hope he finds another job and makes a great game for us to buy.

WTF @ that image, man...

If Crytek die.... the PC platform will lose one of the most dedicated PC developers.
Tbph, they're the only major dev that actually care about the platform.
Devs other than Crytek probably do care. But not many try to accommodate to the latest PC Hardware like Crytek do. Everybody seems to have high hopes on PC with DirectX12 When in reality DirectX11's Native full compliance support is somewhat laughable (ie:- not shoehorned in with a patch)

6 games are native DirectX11 on the PC platform as of writing this

Crysis 3
Daylight
Titanfall
Tropico 5
War Of The Vikings
Watch_Dogs

I think for a 5 year old API to have a catalogue of 6 games that are fully compliant is ridiculous.

There's a reason Crysis 3 looks better than Crysis 2 (post DX11 patch)
Crysis 3 Native DX11
Crysis 2 shoehorned patch DX11

Please don't retort with a DirectX11 list of games from wikipedia. Like I said 99% of those titles of are patched... not built from the ground up with the API in question.

It'd also be nice if DX12 were to add new vertex, pixel and shader models. Atm I'm lead to believe(I haven't read the white papers) That it's just a speed increase for multicore CPU's and improved collision detection..

On N4G's PC section the only way a PC topic can muster over 15 comments is when it has PS4 and XBOX One connected to the title. Not acceptable for a gaming centric site and must somewhat irk the elitists.

There's no doubt that the MMORPG genre is the saving grace for the PC and generates the most revenue for the PC Platform.
There's always a huge influx of those titles...one of the main reasons I gave up PC gaming in the first place.

I class MMORPG's for the socially inept with little grasp on reality.

feel free to correct me if I'm wrong...or don't. I might even appreciate a simple TL:DR or "you're a fucking moron"

sorane738d ago (Edited 738d ago )

So easy to tell that you know little to nothing about PC. Oh and that list is just laughable and is not even close to the amount of games that natively support dx11. Where's Battlefield 3&4 on the list? Or Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare, Sniper Elite 3, the last Stalker game, Thief, the latest Splinter Cell, Trials Fusion, the latest Need For Speed, Last Light, Grid 2, Dirt 2-3-Showdown, Company of Heroes 2, Bioshock Infinite, AVP, ARMA 3, Assassins Creed 3&4, etc, etc etc. None of which had to be "patched in" as you so like to lie about. You trolls should try to use at least half a brain cell before posting your filth.

incredibleMULK739d ago

Damn I wish they'd get their sh1t together. I want future crysis titles. Addictive multi player, fun campaigns, & great graphics.
