The creators of Crysis in major trouble

By Grayshadow, Posted 20 Dec 2016

Following reports regarding the financial issues at Crytek the company has shut down all its studios to "refocus on its core strengths of developing innovative games and game-development technology".


Specifically the studios in Bulgaria, Hungary, China, Turkey, and South Korea. 

Crytek Co-Founder and Managing Director Avni Yerli made the following statement following the closures:

“Undergoing such transitions is far from easy, and we’d like to sincerely thank each and every staff member – past and present – for their hard work and commitment to Crytek. These changes are part of the essential steps we are taking to ensure Crytek is a healthy and sustainable business moving forward that can continue to attract and nurture our industry’s top talent. The reasons for this have been communicated internally along the way. Our focus now lies entirely on the core strengths that have always defined Crytek – world-class developers, state-of-the-art technology and innovative game development, and we believe that going through this challenging process will make us a more agile, viable, and attractive studio, primed for future success.”

This is a demoralizing announcement for fans and the developers at Crytek. Crytek has assured that the company intends to work on premium IPs and that CRYENGINE will remain an essential part of that process.
