Crysis Warhead

News: The developers of the PC-crushing Crysis will now release all of their titles to multiple platforms.



As part of an interview with PC Play, Crytek President Cevat Yerli added his company's name to the long list of companies that are no longer making PC-exclusive titles. During the course of the interview he was polled for his opinion on the state of PC gaming, which lead to the bombshell statement:

?We are suffering currently from the huge piracy that is encompassing Crysis. We seem to lead the charts in piracy by a large margin, a chart leading that is not desirable. I believe that's the core problem of PC Gaming, piracy.? To the degree PC Gamers that pirate games inherently destroy the platform. Similar games on consoles sell factors of 4-5 more. It was a big lesson for us and I believe we wont have PC exclusives as we did with Crysis in future. We are going to support PC, but not exclusive anymore.?

The weight of the statement is astounding, as it pretty much leaves Stardock (Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords) as the only high-end PC-only game development company. Which is ironic, because they are a very successful company, one that applies no digital rights management to their titles, and Crytek largely blamed the move on piracy.

Do they think people would get angry if they stated that they just wanted to target the ?larger,? more lucrative console market?
