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.

The MW2 engine is based on id tech like Source is, although more directly.

CryEngine 3 will be licensed because CryTek puts an enormous amount of resources into their tools. A huge chunk of their budget is spent making sure their tools are easy to learn, as well as making sure people learn them.

id never spent money there. Never had the interest. Until they do they'll never do much licensing of their tech, regardless of how advanced it is. My guess is that they've written off id tech 5, too far into development to make it user-friendly, but will make that push for id tech 6.

The bigger surprise to me is the shunning of the Source engine. Valve bought Worldcraft/Hammer so that level design was easy, but it didn't pay off for licensing. They have pretty solid resources and likely the most active modbase. Just never went anywhere.
