Things aren't looking good for Crytek

Eonjay787d ago

Crytek is dead. For the second time. Their PR can't revive the corpse.

ATi_Elite787d ago

Crytek: "We will be making Crysis 2 on the consoles and positioning ourselves to be console game developers because that's where the money is at"

Well how is that working out for you?

There is some good news there though:

"Deep Silver announces that it has acquired the Homefront brand and all coherent assets from Crytek. This includes Homefront: The Revolution which has been announced on 2nd June 2014. The development will be continued in newly founded, Nottingham-based Deep Silver Dambuster Studios."

I think it's safe to assume this studio was Crytek UK since it was also based in Nottingham. Good to know the dev's will be able to continue their work without any worries if true.

It was only a matter of time before this happened

I suspect Microsoft will acquire Ryse shortly...if not the whole studio.

Mr-Dude787d ago (Edited 787d ago )

Sh*t.. Seems things at Crytek are really not peachy after all.

So this means also the Crome Engine 5? or do they keep the Cry Engine?

Benoski787d ago

The Chrome Engine is owned by Techland.

I'm not sure they'll keep CryEngine, either.

Harmonizer787d ago

As mentioned in the article they got to keep all the assets - Which have all been made in Cryengine - so i think it's safe to assume Homefront will continue on Cryengine and they will licence the Cryengine from Crytek.

wingedmerchantgaming787d ago

Crytek have been putting the inevitable!

MrSwankSinatra787d ago

Damn, but what does this mean for crytek though?

1noobgamer787d ago

their gone sooner or later

HiTMaNHuntr787d ago

Pretty much. Unless someone purchases them they aren't looking to good.
( And honestly I don't expect them to be bought. But that's just my expectation. )

Sevir787d ago

I think hat they'll either downsize and close a few studios Crytek has 3 they may go down to one and stay independent or. sell off the studios to other publishers, I think EA and Ms would be in the bids for them considering their relationship.

Sony should look into acquiring something of Crytek.
Maybe add them to their tech engineering efforts in the Japan HQ.

In anycase, i'm sad to see tat another Game developer is hit with a hard time, and this proved that the developer was really going through a rough time.
