Ryse and Crysis developer closes five studios

It’s not a good time for Crytek as the company re-focuses its business.

Starting this month Crytek’s studios in Frankfurt and Kiev will become the main teams behind company’s development process. As we read in the official statement, the studios to be closed are: Crytek Black Sea, Crytek Budapest, Crytek Istanbul, Crytek Seoul and Crytek Shanghai.

There are plans to secure jobs for their employees but as far as we know five studios closing are a direct definition of lots of talented people left without work.

“These changes are part of the essential steps we are taking to ensure Crytek is a healthy and sustainable business moving forward that can continue to attract and nurture our industry’s top talent.,” said Avni Yerli, Crytek’s Co-Founder. We hope that people from all five studios will find new jobs ASAP.
