Crytek has been in the news a lot recently regarding their financial situation. Various members Crytek have left their positions, and Crytek has been bleeding money for a while now after their widely considered failed attempt at making a F2P FPS and their MOBA. However, Crytek recently issued a statement claiming they've received a new, stable income source that will keep them going for a while.

The full statement is as follows:
