    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:

    Unfortunately, they haven't supplied any kind of detailed information regarding where they're getting this income from, so this statement doesn't seem too reassuring.

    EDIT: Update - Looks like Crytek has announced where this new income is coming from. Read more here:

    Honestly I think Crytek shouldn't even make games, just engines and shit. I mean doesn't everyone just download their games to benchmark their shiny new PCs?

    Crysis and Warhead were great.

    Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 were absolute borefests.

    Crytek UK isn't bad though, they used to be Free Radical Design and made TimeSplitters.

    As for the news though, this doesn't sound reliable at all. Where would they be getting income that they couldn't disclose? Unless a company is pumping money into them for a project or something, but I doubt it. They'd just let them die and buy out the rights to their titles and engines.

    It's meth, isn't it? I bet it's meth.

    Crystal Meth, of course.

    They're all identical. The only difference is that Crysis 1 has a huge island to explore.

    1 is ok, 2 and 3 are shit.

    I know! I know! Their income is from a Gbatemp member with celebrity status who wishes to remain anonymous.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You know. I came into this thread, read it, and was like "So they're selling drugs aren't they..."
    and then I paused and I thought "Damn I hope I got here before Gahars because he'll snatch up this horrible joke in a second, I just know it."

    and then I scrolled down...
