New Crytek Studio Opens in Austin, Team Includes Darksiders Developers

Crytek today announced the opening of their first North American studio in Austin, Texas. Running the ship as CEO is ex-Vigil Games co-founder David Adams.

Reports indicate this new studio is staffed with core members of the Vigil Games team. A tweet from THQ president Jason Rubin substantiates these reports:

This comes after news of their exclusion during THQ’s bankruptcy auction, leaving the future of the Darksiders developers unknown.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the newest Crytek studio, which will boast some of the brightest development talent in the industry,” said Adams. “The studio’s launch represents Crytek’s commitment to delivering diverse and high quality content to players everywhere.”

On the new studio, new team, and David Adams, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said, “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. 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.”
