Lmao Crytek butthurt they aren't using their s***ty engine. Times change, companies move on. Get over it.


Except they are.

And yes, there is some duality to that statement.

Contracts, they're a b****.

Any honorable game dev would let Robert use whatever engine he wanted to maximize his game's potential to give everyone a better product. But it's obvious that Crytek aren't true gamers and don't give a s*** about revolutionizing the game industry and playing a better game themselves.

Dude, that's totally how companies work! Screw profit - let's just do everything we can to make sure the consumers get the best possible product! Hey! Why don't you start a company with that philosophy and show everyone else how to do it? Ignore the fact that if you dump the money it takes into something to make it absolutely the best possible, it will likely be too expensive for anyone to afford, or else you're going to lose money... But you'll be making the industry better, so your sacrifice is worth it.

Did I say that's how companies work? I said that's how honorable true gamers work. Which Crytek, as I said, obviously aren't.

Well, obviously Crytek is not a true gamer, considering Crytek is not a person at all, but a company. Maybe you were confused what Crytek was?

I assume you're not an honorable true gamer either? Or is there something significant you've self-sacrificed to make the gaming industry better?

Crytek runs itself? People don't run it? I see.

Crytek is a company. A company, by definition, is not a person. Companies exist to make money. Now take that little bit of information, and re-read my initial response to your suggestion, still quoted above for your convenience.

People don't run companies. Got it.

I wonder if Amazon will defend them.

Amazon doesn't really have a stake in it as best I can tell.

The issue isn't that CIG switched to Lumberyard, but that they switched and kept using CryEngine 3 assets beyond their contract and/or without adhering to the original agreement for using said assets.
