Thanks to Mesotronik for this one. Hello everyone, an article appeared on DSOGaming portal about the bad prognosis for the developer of Cryengine, Crytek. Apparently, Crytek is in deep trouble, with its latest game (Ryse – console exclusive) not doing as well as they hoped and with the danger of bankrupcy looming over the developer, the proverbial sharks smelled blood in the water and are starting to close in, expecting to get intellectual property and manpower out of the failing studio soon. Allegedly the studio is already in the stage of paying some of the salaries late and with employees senting applications to other companies. The article has one very interesting part for us though: For what is worth, Wargaming is listed as a possible buyer of Crytek. If Wargaming does buys Crytek, we can kiss goodbye to all of the studio’s single-player games (as Wargaming is best known for its Free-To-Play games). In short, this may be the end of the Crytek we knew. Hmmm, Wargaming buying Cryengine? That would be actually cool for World of Tanks 2.0, wouldn’t it…
