A new studio has been opened up by game developers Crytek, and the destination this time is Shanghai, China. Crytek have been the developers behind games such as Crysis, and this studio is set to enhance support in Asia.
It will also look to boost operation of Warface, a free-to-play shooter game. Avni Yerli, Crytek’s marketing director, said “We see a lot of potential in the Chinese market, and have learned a lot from the close relationship with our eight existing Chinese licensees, whose backgrounds range from game development to architecture visualisation, and interactive exhibition to serious simulation. The formation of Crytek Shanghai builds on the base we first established in Asia with Crytek Seoul, and offers invaluable strategic opportunities as we continue to expand our reach into the world’s largest market.”
This news come’s after last month’s revelation that Warface is to be available in Europe, the US, Australia and New Zealand.
