Warsaw, Poland-based publisher and developer City Interactive has licensed Crytek's CryEngine 3 for the development of two unannounced FPS games it plans to release over the next "couple of years", the companies announced.
Most recently, City Interactive launched Sniper: Ghost Warrior
on June 29, and says it's in a period of growth in its revenue, profit and market share. Its worldwide revenue for its first through third fiscal quarters is up 230 percent year over year, and it expects its 2010 revenues to see 219 percent growth.
Now, the studio hopes to ramp up its upcoming releases, and sees the licensing of a major engine as part of the strategy. "We have licensed the CryEngine 3, one of the most advanced game engines available, as a means to further develop some soon to be announced multiplatform games that will deliver amazing gaming experiences," says CEO Marek Tyminski.
CryEngine global business development director Carl Jones adds: "City has shown with the success of Sniper: Ghost Warrior
that they understand what gamers want to play," he praises.
"CryEngine 3 and our dedicated global support team will help them achieve their vision on more platforms, with the speed and high quality values that our engine and tools uniquely provide to developers."
