Crytek to End PC Exclusives

There's a Cevat Yerli Q&A on PC Play (thanks Eurogamer) with word that Crysis is likely the last PC-exclusive game from developer Crytek. Though he once again dismisses speculation that a console port of Crysis is in the cards, he places the blame for declining PC game sales squarely on the shoulders of software pirates, a theory that has become pretty commonplace. Word is:
We are suffering currently from the huge piracy that is encompassing Crysis. We seem to lead the charts in piracy by a large margin, a chart leading that is not desirable. I believe that’s the core problem of PC Gaming, piracy. To the degree PC Gamers that pirate games inherently destroy the platform. Similar games on consoles sell factors of 4-5 more. It was a big lesson for us and I believe we wont have PC exclusives as we did with Crysis in future. We are going to support PC, but not exclusive anymore.

I didn't buy Crysis on PC and I surely wouldn't buy it on a console. It wasn't a good game. I played the demo/beta thing and I was bored to tears. Sure, the graphics are awesome, but if the gameplay is lacking, all your engine efforts are wasted. It's like buying a Lamborghini with no transmission; looks pretty but something ain't right inside.

Stop making excuses for your shitty sales and stop blaming piracy. Admit that your game was average with a pretty face and we'll like you better.
