Crytek Raided

German website PC Games Online (thanks Fappin) has word that the offices of Far Cry developer Crytek were raided by the police this morning. Here's a rough Babel Fish translation of a bit that suggests a disgruntled ex-employee (are they ever gruntled?) tipped the police that pirated software was in use: "According to first estimations of the police Crytek used illegally software for play production and caused thus a damage within the six-digit range. Evidence was placed already surely. The law guardians had become attentive by the reference of a former Crytek coworker."

does a company making an AAA game have to be to use pirated software? I mean, really really stupid. It's common knowledge that basically everyone gets their start with 3d/photoshop/whatever using a pirated program, but when you're making a huge upcoming game with it.. different story.
