"The future is online and free-to-play."

DLC and premium gaming services are “milking customers to death”, says Crytek’s CEO Cevat Yerli. And once their own contracts with publishers to produce traditional boxed products – like Crysis 3 - are finished, Crytek is going to move completely into producing only F2P titles. “As we were developing console games we knew, very clearly, that the future is online and free-to-play,” said Yerli. “As is evident in Warface, our approach is to ensure the best quality, console game quality. That implies budgets of between $10m to $30m – so no compromise there – but at the price-point of $0 entry.”
