Crytek to Abandon PC Exclusive Development

by Rainier on April 29, 2008 @ 1:20 p.m. PDT

Citing piracy reasons, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli is the latest developer head crying wolf that PC gaming is being brought down by illegal downloads. In an interview with PC Play, Cevat states that the Crysis developer has been seriously hurt by piracy, and PC gamers that pirate games inherently destroy the platform. As a result Crytek will no longer develop PC exclusive titles, which was most likely the case either way now that its CryEngine is being ported to PS3 and Xbox 360.
