Crytek opens new China studio

Crysis firm continues eastern expansion

German developer Crytek has opened a new studio in Shanghai, China.


The Crysis maker said new outfit Crytek Shanghai Software will offer promotion and support of CryEngine in Asia and play an active part in the regional operation of free-to-play shooter Warface.

Crytek MD Avni Yerli said: "We see a lot of potential in the Chinese market, and have learned a lot from the close relationship with our eight existing Chinese licensees, whose backgrounds range from game development to architecture visualisation, and interactive exhibition to serious simulation.

"The formation of Crytek Shanghai builds on the base we first established in Asia with Crytek Seoul, and offers invaluable strategic opportunities as we continue to expand our reach into the world's largest market."

Last month Crytek announced plans to launch Warface throughout Europe, in the US, Australia and New Zealand.
