Crytek has announced its first North American Studio which will be located in Austin, Texas. The studio will be run by Vigil Games co-founder David Adams and has staffed up with 35 additional developers. This is a big move from the developers of the PC benchmark destroyer Crysis that was released in 2007 with two follow up titles also appearing on consoles with publication from EA.
“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.”
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the newest Crytek studio, which will boast some of the brightest development talent in the industry,” Adams added. “The studio’s launch represents Crytek’s commitment to delivering diverse and high quality content to players everywhere.”
Crytek explains that the studio “paves the way for exciting new opportunities” and expands upon its existing studios in Europe and Asia. Before Austin, Crytek’s most recent studio was Crytek Istanbul, which joined Crytek’s studios in Germany, the Ukraine, Hungary, Bulgaria, South Korea, the UK, and China.
