Crytek announced that it has acquired Bulgaria-based Black Sea Studios, known for Knights of Honor, and the recent Worldshift. Under the terms of the acquisition, Black Sea Studios will remain in Sofia, Bulgaria and become Crytek Black Sea, a wholly owned studio.

"We think the acquisition of Black Sea Studios is a great opportunity to continue our strategic growth and expansion. Black Sea Studios already has a very qualified and experienced development team in place and will be continually expanded in capacity to join our tradition of producing highly innovative and creative games which Crytek is known for.", said Avni Yerli, Managing Director of Crytek

"Joining the Crytek family was a logical step for us as we think it is a perfect match. We are confident that our team has the creativity and passion to further contribute in creating innovative and enjoyable games. We are fascinated about this opportunity and we are looking forward to work in this new exciting environment as Crytek Black Sea." said Vesselin Handjiev, Managing Director of Black Sea Studios, now Crytek Black Sea.
