Crytek acquires Black Sea Studios

Bulgarian Developer becomes Crytek Black Sea



Frankfurt (Germany), July 14th, 2008 – Crytek GmbH today announced that it has acquired Bulgaria-based Black Sea Studios Ltd. Under the terms of the acquisition, Black Sea Studios will become Crytek Black Sea, a wholly owned studio. Black Sea Studios development team will remain in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Oh yea.. more teamwork, the more we get quality games we are getting.
The CryEngine2 is a blast and ahead of time (I think)

/Offtopic
Alex, I dont know how to say this but:

What or how much is used in Crysis (in %) ?
I mean.. I have the feeling that with Crysis 1, just 40% is used of CryEngine?
(I have the feeling more resources can be used as Crysis is.)

Good job Crytek /Crytek Black Sea Studios.
(nice name btw)

Well just spectate above a map and see what the other guys are capturing :P
But yeah a combination of Word in Conflict and Crysis should be a blast!
