E3 2012: Crytek switches to F2P, Premium DLC

Crysis developer Crytek has apparently claimed that it is to become a free-to-play only studio.

Speaking to Videogamer.com, CEO Cevat Yerli said that the growing “DLC and premium services” model is “milking customers to death”.

The transition will come once the developer has completed its current contracts for traditional boxed products.

"As we were developing console games we knew, very clearly, that the future is online and free-to-play," Yerli stated.

"Right now we are in the transitional phase of our company, transitioning from packaged goods games into an entirely free-to-play experience.

"What this entails is that our future, all the new games that we're working on, as well new projects, new platforms and technologies, are designed around free-to-play and online, with the highest quality development."

Crytek’s first F2P FPS will be the previously announced Warface.
