Crytek Boss: Our Future is Free-To-Play

June 8, 2012 -

Speaking to web site Videogamer.com, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli revealed that - after the company is done wrapping up its currents projects - all of its future game releases will be free-to-play. Yerli also said that he has become a little bit sick of DLC and premium gaming services that are "milking customers to death."

The next game from Crytek, a multiplayer first-person shooter being developed at Crytek Kiev, will serve as the company's first free-to-play title.

"As we were developing console games we knew, very clearly, that the future is online and free-to-play," said Yerli. "Right now we are in the transitional phase of our company, transitioning from packaged goods games into an entirely free-to-play experience."

You can check out the rest of Yerli's comments on Videogamer.com. They promise a full interview with the Crytek front man sometime next week.

That's cool, I guess.  But before you do that, think you could fix the 24Hz bug that has plagued all the Crysis games?  Kthxbye.

At least the same fix that worked on the earlier Crysises (Cryses?) still works.  A small program that blocks your video card from going to any non-60Hz modes.  It's a glaring issue for me, not because I'm particularly bothered by the framerate, but because my display, for whatever reason, looks all screwy at 24Hz.  The image goes off the edge of the screen, and everything has that weird ghosted/blurred look of something badly upscaled.  Dunno why it takes a 1920x1080 image, upscales it, and then crops it back to 1920x1080 just because of the framerate, but it does, and it looks godawful.
