This is how much you have to shell out to license CryEngine 3

Posted By | On 18th, Mar. 2012 Under News | Follow This Author @KartikMdgl

DigitalBattle is reporting that CryEngine 3 costs approx. $1.2 million to license. Normally you wouldn’t notice all these things because the NDA is quite strict, but according to the site’s sources, the figure is just over a million dollars.

CryEngine 3 was first showcased with Crysis 2, and we all know how gorgeous that game looks, especially on the PC. Crytek could have done a lot better though, but with the next-gen approaching soon, we could be seeing some pretty impressive looking games from the studio and the third-party licensee.

For a commercial project, the costs are a bit too high it seems, considering Unreal Engine 3 should be available for a lot cheaper. Of course, this is just pure speculation from me. Crytek is rumoured to be working on a next-gen project for Microsoft.

    Even very very small developers got commercial license & technical support. They paid 1 million doller to get license? Hahaha, that’s just impossible. At least, there are some license plans. I think minimum cost is around 0.01 million doller. Some websites are posting this news, those articles may become the business interference. Be careful.

    That’s a shame.

    I thought it seemed reasonable, seeing as making a game costs millions of dollars anyhow.
