Free CryENGINE Plans

Develop has word that Crytek plans on releasing a free version of their upcoming CryENGINE 3, similar to the free version of the Unreal engine Epic offers as the Unreal Development Kit. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli tells them, "we do want to make a standalone free platform that people can run independent of CryEngine that will also be up to speed with the latest engine." Thanks VG247.

I want to know why CryTek is keen on releasing this

So that people have the full toolkit to learn on. That way, when hired by a company, they already know how CryEngine in and out, lowering the cost of adopting it relative to other engines. Trojan horse.

Why isn't id Software more focused on releasing iterations of their Tech5
Because id has essentially exited the engine licensing market. From what I've been told ZeniMax has determined it a lost cause.
