Crytek's fall continues.

HUNT Horrors of the Gilded Age

Crytek UK is no more and development of Homefront: The Revolution has shifted to Dambuster Studios with the IP being acquired by Deep Silver. Crytek has revealed that free to play co-op shooter Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age will be shifting development from Crytek USA to the home office in Frankfurt.

However, sources speaking to Kotaku revealed that studio head David Adams, along with other senior staff at Crytek USA, have quit following lack of pay. About 30 to 35 employees have left the studio as of last week. It seems that Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told staff members in May that a bank deal would be put together by June 20th so despite weeks of no payment, the team at Crytek USA still kept going. After June 20th though, staff members simply stopped going to work with some already going to new places to work.

One source connected to Crytek USA stated that, “Everyone at that studio was incredibly talented, and they got scooped up quickly by studios that actually pay their employees.”

Is this the end of Crytek as we know it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
