Crytek Transitioning to Focus on Free-to-Play Development
Crytek has already inked a deal with Trion Worlds to publish their online free-to-play shooter Warface, which is already live in Russia and undergoing beta testing in China. While theres no solid information on US and EU release, Crytek is already setting its sights on expanding further into the free-to-play market according to Yerli.
"Right now we are in the transitional phase of our company, transitioning from packaged goods games into an entirely free-to-play experience.
"What this entails is that our future, all the new games that we're working on, as well new projects, new platforms and technologies, are designed around free-to-play and online, with the highest quality development."
Yerli wants to create titles with a triple A budget, and implied that future Crytek free-to-play projects will be getting between $10 million and $30 million budgets.
