Crytek Going Entirely Free-to-Play

Crytek CEO tells Videogamer.com that Crytek is moving towards developing only free-to-play games. "Right now we are in the transitional phase of our company, transitioning from packaged goods games into an entirely free-to-play experience," he told them at E3. "What this entails is that our future, all the new games that we're working on, as well new projects, new platforms and technologies, are designed around free-to-play and online, with the highest quality development."

I think you'll find that the majority of people who play CoD do so for the multiplayer, not the single-player.

Undoubtedly, since the singleplayer portions were so generally ham-fisted and short. Me, I still play BF2 and BF2142, because they have singleplayer features that mirror the multiplayer without the annoyance of playing with other people who half the time are WAY better than you or just complete jerks. With a few tweaks, a coop server with a few friends against a team of a bots over a LAN can be had easily as well. BF3 doesn't allow it, so I stayed away.

Getting back to free-to-play, I don't see a company moving to an all-F2P development strategy as anything but completely bad. The Crysis games were far and away better singleplayer games imo, so Crytek is basically dead to me once they do this.
