“Crytek has always enjoyed a special relationship with gamers and business partners in North America, so establishing a permanent presence in the US was a natural step,” said Crytek CEO, Cevat Yerli. “We are extremely excited about the work that we will be undertaking from our strategic new location in Austin, with David Adams and his team of 35 experienced developers. We believe our CryENGINE technology will enable the team we assemble to create unparalleled new gaming experiences.”
David Adams, the newly appointed CEO of Crytek USA Corp., added: “I’m thrilled to be a part of the newest Crytek studio, which will boast some of the brightest development talent in the industry. The studio’s launch represents Crytek’s commitment to delivering diverse and high quality content to players everywhere.”
David Adams formerly worked for NCSoft, but in 2006 left to start Vigil Games with comic book artist Joe Madureira. At the time of its demise, Vigil Games was working on a new project called "Crawler."
