Crytek Expanding Again
Crytek, the developer of critically acclaimed titles Far Cry and Crysis, is expanding again. Today, the German developer announced that they are opening a studio in Budapest, Hungary. This studio will be a part of Crytek’s strategy to expand the CryENGINE 2 into a number of gaming genres.
Avni Yerli, Managing Director of Crytek, said, “After considering a number of different options over the last two years, we chose to open our next studio in Budapest because it is both a wonderful city in which to work and live, and because we were able to draw on a significant pool of very qualified and experienced game development talent already in place there. We think it is a great way to widen our horizons and develop for a new gaming genre while continuing our company’s strategic growth and expansion. It is also an opportunity to further leverage all the effort that our team has put into developing our proprietary CryENGINE 2 technology while building on our tradition of producing the highly innovative and creative kind of games for which we are known.”
If Far Cry and Crysis are any indication of what Crytek has to offer, gamers in other genres have something really awesome to look forward to.
