Things are getting worse at Crytek. The developer relinquished publishing rights to Warface to My.com in January, after financial issues in December caused it to eliminate five studios. If a recent Reddit post is to be believed, those issues have reached a boiling point.
The post in question, from the aptly named “paymecrytek,” claims to be from a Crytek employee who says that employees were last paid on time in April 2016. The last payment of any kind was in January, for work done in December, but no wages due in 2017 have yet been paid. As “executives leave the sinking ship” and “no one knows if the company can recover,” one executive “is still driving his new Lamborghini to work while the employees in the supermarket are looking for the cheapest lunch.”
Given the tone and apparent knowledge of details within the company, I’d lean toward the post being genuine, but one can never be totally sure. If it is all true, then you’d better get your time in Warface, and other Crytek games, while you can. They might not be around much longer.
