We won't publish the names, but the list includes staff who held key positions in art, design and programming.

Timesplitters would have been a more interesting project,but I wish Crytek and employees the best

Ogygian3682d ago

Well if they do collapse, we can only hope that a silver lining might be the purchase of the Timesplitters IP by a studio which is actually going to do something with it.

ThichQuangDuck3682d ago

Timesplitters announcement at E3 with split-screen,map creator, etc would have been huge. I guess we can only hope. Until then will just wait for the hd re release being made by fans

It's like this IP is cursed... whoever owns it goes out of business.

30 people over 3 years is alarming on one hand but not as massive as I feared on the other hand.

OC_MurphysLaw3682d ago

Hmm...now seeing its over 100 people in 3 months. Either way I guess the reality is...when there is that much smoke...fire is just beyond the door.

crazychris41243682d ago

They really need to hit big with Homefront. Its looks pretty good but Fall 2015 is a long way off. If this is true hopefully they can hold it together until they ship the game n fix post launch issues.

Crytek Gives Brief Update on New Crysis Game; Studio Has a "Great Team" Working on It

Crytek gives an update on their new Crysis game, confirming that it's still in development, with more to share down the road.

DefenderOfDoom2234d ago

Actually would love a new Crysis campaign.

P_Bomb234d ago

Ditto. Ran through them again last year. I’ll grab the new one.

Crazyglues233d ago (Edited 233d ago )

Yeah they really messed up by not adding the Multi-player to the Crysis Triogly because while the campaign was fun I really loved the Multi-player and couldn't wait to see what it was going to be like on current gen.

They could have dropped new maps and DLC and fans would have bought it up... -But they dropped the ball and did just the Campaign's with no new content or story, which was just crazy.

Anyway still hoping Crysis 4 is the whole Chicken Sandwhich with all the toppings.... Can't wait.

PrinceOfAnger233d ago (Edited 233d ago )

Yeah It will probably be 5 years development

SimpleSlave233d ago (Edited 233d ago )

That's awesome. So how long till the studio closes and everyone gets fired?

Series S owners: "but can it run crysis doh?"

Immersed Gamer writes: "Frans Bouma just received a Cease and Desist letter from Crytek, developers of Crysis. Did he pirate their game? Or maybe he infringed on their copyright? What horrible thing did Bouma do to deserve this? Well, he modded in a photo mode so that people could take beautiful pictures and share them on social media."

Open source the code and dump it on the internet.

mastershredder923d ago

"from his Patreon page" Uhhhh yeah.......Oh gee and I wonder why that was problem? You know where this goes there Filip or perhaps you are just not quite yet.

Mazgamer923d ago (Edited 923d ago )

It's astounding how quickly someone uniformed will take a side of soulless company just because a modder might be making some pocket change.

For your information: He puts all of his camera mode mods on GitHub, completely free of charge. His Patreon is nothing more than a way to tip him some cash for his work.

He says so himself on his GitHub page:
I do this for fun, not profit, but can't create cameras for games I don't own. I've therefore setup a Patreon page which allows you to safely support my work".

Are you following "mastershredder", or are you not quite there yet?
