Crytek planning to give up packaged titles in favour of free-to-play
Crytek boss Cervat Yerli has revealed that once they have cleared their slate of packaged titles in development they will be concentration on free-to-play development.
The German-based developer is currently working on Crysis 3 with EA Partners, Homefront 2 for THQ and Ryse for Microsoft but once these are completed the aim is to develop free-to-play titles exclusively.
Yerli stated, "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."
"As is evident in Warface," Yerli elaborated, "our approach is to ensure the best quality, console game quality. That implies budgets of between 10m USD to 30m USD so no compromise there but at the price-point of 0 USD entry. I think this is a new breed of games that has to happen to change the landscape, and be the most user-friendly business model."
