Crytek, Crysis Developer, Reportedly In Financial Trouble

Crytek, the developer of Crysis, has been behaving in a way that leads many to believe that they are exhibiting financial hardships. Despite the denial by Crytek, they have been late in paying the staff that it  has held on to. You may be wondering by what I mean by ‘the staff that it has held on to’. Paired with the revelations of the late payments, there are also published reports that there has been mass departures of employees as well. Employees have claimed that they have been working in an unstable environment as several high level staff members have left their studios from Germany to the United Kingdom.

One employee says up to 100 people  have fled Crytek in a mere three month period. This story initially grabbed attention when the German magazine GameStar said there were financial troubles at Crytek. This gained traction and legitimacy when anonymous sorces said Ryse: Sone of Rome for Xbox One and many other projects had been a disaster for the developer. In the light of all these concerning events, Crytek released the following statement:

Regardless of what some media are reporting, mostly based on a recent article published by GameStar, the information in those reports and in the GameStar article itself are rumors which Crytek deny.

Information from GameStar and Eurogamer contributed to this report.
