Default Re: Future Crytek titles will be multi-platform, no more PC exclusives

Blaming EA is a cop out, plain and simple.

No one forced Crytek to sign with EA, and if Crytek didn't want to make console games they wouldn't have to...EA can't force them to make one.

Crytek finally woke up like many other developers before them and realized that they would have sold many, many more copies had the game been cross-platform. And as far as Crysis "exceeding expectations", well that makes you feel better right up to the point that you realize that five times as many people are downloading your game than paying for it.

There isn't a single developer worth talking about thats not putting at least some resources into console development these days, because with the cost to make games these days its the smart thing to do.
