Crytek Going Entirely Free-to-Play

Crytek CEO tells 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."

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.

I'm generally more of an SP guy myself, but the last Crytek game I really enjoyed was Far Cry. Crysis didn't really do much for me and I haven't even bothered trying Crysis 2 yet. I'm not really excited about Crysis 3 either. Now, if Obsidian went F2P, I'd be devastated.

You haven't even tried Crysis 2, Jerykk, so what are you saying? I didn't like Far Cry that much. I fucking hated Crysis. I freaking LOVED Crysis 2. It's solid, it doesn't give you that stupid illusion of freedom Crysis did, and the engine is a whole other sweet baby. Crysis 2 looks gorgeous and runs with a solid 60fps on my 3 year old machine.

I suggest you try first, before throwing in opinions based on absolutely nothing.
