If Crytek's "transitional phase
" remains sustainable, it will become a go-to example among industry insiders of how not to handle such a difficult time. Speaking with Eurogamer
, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli opens up about how the company has shifted its strategy from retail to software as a service, which was clearly
not handled internally with the transparency required to control chatter
"[Going] out of business or bankruptcy, in my mind, was never the case. We have tried to communicate this as much as we can to everybody. But I understand some employees of Crytek have been in other companies under similar situations and they have gone out of business," Yerli told Eurogamer. "We have a lot of substance in Crytek."
