Crytek Undergoing Changes, Lays Off Employees

Crytek

Crytek studios is undergoing some radical structural changes, it appears brought about a few different factors.  Deep Silver recently confirmed that it had purchased the Homefront IP from Crytek, taking over development of the next game in the series, Homefront: Revolution.  While this did mean that employees who had been at work on the project from Crytek were able to transfer to Deep Silver to continue their contributions, things haven’t looked so good for other workers under the Crytek umbrella.

It’s also been confirmed that a number of staff were laid off at their Austin, Texas locale, though a few have remained on to continue the support of CryEngine for North American developers.  However, with rumors building that workers at the Crytek USA studio were not getting paid for long periods at a time, it was later confirmed via Kotaku that these employees had largely quit, some more than a week ago.  This resulted in Crytek moving development of their project Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age over to their studio in Frankfurt.

Other areas of Crytek, including those located in Budapest and Istanbul, appear to remain unaffected by this.  And CEO Cevat Yerli commented, saying, “As we look to cement Crytek’s future, this strategic deal with [Deep Silver parent company] Koch Media would allow us to continue with our ambitious goals to become an online publisher.
