CITY Interactive vient d'annoncer avoir licencié le CryEngine 3 pour développer deux FPS qui n'ont pas encore été annoncés qui doivent sortir dans les deux ans à venir. Manquerait plus qu'ils fassent des bons jeux. Faut dire que les bons chiffres de Sniper : Ghost Warrior ont donné des ailes à la société : leur troisième trimestre s'est conclu sur une hausse de 230% des revenus et son action a pris 750%. Pas mal pour un éditeur Polonais de FPS budgets.

Le communiqué complet se trouve dans la suite de la nouvelle.
