Crysis Series Is Only "Breaking Even", Says Crytek
Posted on Monday, November 12 @ 12:03:13 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack
Crysis and Crysis 2 may have both sold over three-million units each, but even that hasn't been enough in today's climate.
Crysis Co-Founder, Cevat Yerli, shared with Eurogamer that the Crysis series hasn't yet turned a profit for Crytek despite a fair amount of success.
He then explained the current conditions of the market which developers like Crytek face.
If three-million units sold isn't enough, it's mind-boggling to think of how much funding went into each game's development. Developers have traditionally aimed for the milestone of one-million copies sold, but that has quickly become a thing of the past with today's increasing sophistication of graphical technologies.
Despite Crytek's lukewarm response to Crysis' sales, Crysis 3 is on the horizon and a Crysis 4 has already been confirmed. Maybe once they force their way into popularity they can achieve the significant numbers that Call of Duty and Battlefield do.
