Crytek comes to America with new Austin studio

Crytek, for those of you that don’t know, is the German Game Development Studio responsible for the likes of FarCry and Crisis. They also have just established their first state-side location in Austin, Texas. This is notable because it puts them in an ideal situation to further take advantage of development and business opportunities here in the US.

[quote]“Crytek has always enjoyed a special relationship with gamers and business partners in North America, so establishing a permanent presence in the US was a natural step,” said Crytek CEO, Cevat Yerli. “We are extremely excited about the work that we will be undertaking from our strategic new location in Austin, with David Adams and his team of 35 experienced developers. We believe our CryEngine technology will enable the team we assemble to create unparalleled new gaming experiences.”[/quote]

This location follows the opening of a Crytek studio in Istanbul, showing that the developers are pursuing an aggressive expansion of their business, and hopefully that means we, the players, will be seeing diverse and creative new titles as a result.

Best of luck to Crytek, and here’s hoping it results in some awesome games.
