GameStar: Crytek in Financial Trouble

German site GameStar.de reports (in German) that German developer Crytek is in financial trouble, and may be facing bankruptcy. Most of the story is behind a paywall, though we can see they say that the company secured additional funding in April, but there are questions about how long they will remain viable. DSOGaming summarizes more from the story in English, saying the recently released new version of CryENGINE is not selling well, that development of Ryse was catastrophic, and that there have been delays in making payroll for the 800 employee company.

Them darn pirates!!!!!

not surprised. They've never even made a game that I would consider anything more than above average. And it's not like they've ever blown the roof off in selling the decent ones.

$60 million stretch goal. Cloud Imperium buys Crytek.

Crytek's games always seemed like glorified tech demos. The problem is that they could never sell their engine for any decent game, as the market is essentially build your own engine or use Unreal(with a few rare instances of Source or id). Monolith ran into the same problem with Lithtech after FEAR played itself out.
