Rumors have been swirling since April about Crytek being in financial trouble; needing more operating capital, not paying staff, and sending staff on unpaid leave. They have again and again denied that these rumors are true and their last statement was that "the company is going through a transitional phase from a developer to an online publisher". I have worked for a company in financial trouble before and they denied there was any trouble right up until they sent our severance packages for us to review and sign for the bankruptcy court so this all sounds familiar to me. Today Crytek sold the Homefront IP to Deep Silver and Koch Media. Deep Silver was already working on Homefront: Revolution which is supposed to be released in 2015 so at least they can continue on. I would say this is just more confirmation that Crytek is in trouble.
