At this point we may have to start asking who hasn’t licensed an engine from Crytek. Their CryENGINE and CryENGINE 2 middleware suites are quickly becoming some of the more popular engine choices for Next-Gen MMOG’s, and today’s press release is just another notch in Crytek’s belt.
Reloaded Studios, a Korean game development studio, has licensed the CryENGINE 2 middleware for the production of their upcoming Action Strategy MMORPG – the first MMORPG in the company’s history.
“Our technology team carefully reviewed and analyzed both the features and limitations of all of the major game engines and middleware solutions which are currently available to license, before making our choice.” says Ki-Yong Cho, Chief Executive Officer of Reloaded Studios. “No other engine came close to offering the dynamic features, developer friendly tools, or provided anything near the visual quality of the CryENGINE 2®. We felt it was extremely important when our game is eventually released that it will still be able to stand apart from all other titles, either currently existing or presently in development, in what is now already a very competitive market. We felt only the CryENGINE 2® could support the dynamic content and massive landscapes we intend to build, let alone do justice to the unique art style we plan on bringing to our MMO. Licensing the CryENGINE 2® was an obvious and unanimous choice.”
