Crytek Working On New Title
Crytek, the developer of the much-heralded first-person shooter Crysis, has revealed that its new Kiev studio is now in full production of a new title based on an original IP. Faruk Yerli, MD of Crytek, said, “Now that our CryENGINE 2 middleware has reached the point of maturity where it can be used to support both different types and styles of games, and run on multiple platforms, we thought it was the optimum time to begin work on a new project based on our own new and original intellectual property, and elevate the Kiev operation to full studio status,”
Apparently, the Kiev studio has been recruiting talent for over a year. “The highly talented team has undergone an intensive training period, and in that time they have made an invaluable contribution to our production in Frankfurt,” he added.
Now, we don’t know what the new title is, as it’s being discussed under a veil of secrecy, but I think it’s safe to say that if it’s anything like Crysis, it will be a winner.
