The British studio suddenly got itself stuck in a tailspin of disaster but thanks to German studio Crytek over 180 jobs were saved. Crytek were "picked as a partner", savoir was vetted.
So confident is CEO Yerli that he's happy for Crytek UK to be quizzed on just how great things are turning out now. "If someone has that concern, they should ask the people that are actually there. We have provided the team at Crytek UK a structure and a future that clearly shows improvement," the Crytek boss tells .
"We are working with Free Radical on things that they always dreamed to do" Yerli said. "We are providing the team a roadmap and the chance to grow, which is why we were picked as a partner, and not anyone else."
The nature of these 'dream projects' weren't disclosed though before Free Radical hit the skids and got picked up, insiders had leaked assets for TimeSplitters 4 and Star Wars Battlefront 3.
See the clip below for the leaked Battlefront 3 footage.
