Crytek: Piracy is 'something we'd like to address' for Crysis 3

"It's unfortunate that you don't win any awards for most downloaded game"

Crytek's Rasmus Højengaard - made famous this week by 'pre-owned block would be awesome' comments, which he latter retracted - is talking about piracy again this morning, only these comments are probably a lot less likely to rile up fans.


Speaking to our colleagues at PC Gamer, the senior creative director said of Crysis 2's unfortunate record as most pirated game of last year: "It's unfortunate that you don't win any awards for most downloaded game."

He added on piracy in Crysis 3: "But yeah, obviously it's something we'd like to address. Certainly people apparently really want to play our games, they just don't wanna buy them. So we'll do what we can, but whatever that's gonna be is hard to say yet."

A fair comment? If millions of people are stealing your game, you'd want to do something about it. Though we'd prefer a meaty DLC schedule to intrusive DRM.

We'll have more from our interview with Hojengaard later this week. In the meantime, check out Crysis 3's newly released gameplay trailer, plus our recently published Crysis 3 preview, in which our man Ben Griffin called the FPS "a contender for best-looking game of all time".
