"The transformation was painful. We paid the price"
Eurogamer exclusive interview with Crytek co-founder, Cevat Yerli, discussing the studio's recent financial troubles, the sale of Crytek UK and the Homefront IP, as well as their transition towards a free-to-play future.
I'm getting a feeling their "Partner" is Deep Silver.
And after reading this article...I know for a fact not to trust anything Cryteks Yerli brothers say.

You're jumping on the F2P wagon when it's already a crowded market. Only game that did well was Warface in Russia and it didn't do well anywhere else.
Cryengine business isn't doing so well...Which currently is evident with the lack of Cryengine games being advertised to the public. (Could be more, but sales suggest otherwise)
Cevat Yerli thinks Crytek is safe... Are you delusional?
You guys were good at pc , did you seriously had to go multiplatform , you bet big but lost and its a shame to see and game company or dev having financial issues , i hope you sort your problems out ...
They turned their backs on PC, and it killed them!
Crytek has no future
The competition in the engine market has hit them hard, unity and unreal engines offer great product to developers and a great pricing structure.
