For the Record: Crytek Overcame Financial Issues?
Thanks to Mesotronik for the main source of this info. Hello everyone, since you are currently reading what is basically a game blog, I presume that you know what is Crytek: a game developer, best known for their indigenous game engine called CryEngine as well as some computer games, most notably the Crysis series. Recently, it was rumored that Crytek was in financial trouble and that Wargaming might be actually interested in giving a helping hand. At that time, Crytek denied the rumors of financial issues, but as it turns out, they were true, as recently, Crytek came out and admitted them. Naturally, this in turn resurrected the rumors of Wargaming interest, especially since Wargaming confirmed they are thinking already about WoT 2.0 (and let’s face it, any such large WoT overhaul really needs a better engine). One thing from the article linked above is interesting though, the last part. Two parts actually. The majority of the article is PR fluff, but check this out. One: “According to a statement issued to VentureBeat, the CryEngine developer was “in a transitional phase” and has since found the capital necessary to proceed with its upcoming project like Homefront: The Revolution and Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age.” Two: We’ve reached out to Crytek to inquire more about its mysterious new funding and to see if any of its already announced projects will be delayed or cancelled due to its recent financial woes. We’ll update as we find out more. So, who else thinks Big Boss Kislyi made them an “offer they couldn’t refuse”? :)
