    What is scary is that CryTek doesn't seem to be in damage control mode either via press announcements or restructuring their workload. It wreaks of unethical business practices being verified by their own apathy. You can't crawl out of a massive hole like this by just ignoring it. All we've seen them do is use their branch studio leads to deny it's happening.

    Valve VS the others.

    Valve; We will make it, when the time and feeling is right. In the meantime have the source code and these free games.

    the others; we will make, and it will cost, and if it doesn't sell we blame piracy, glitches are features, fixes are in game purchases, don't attempt to change the game in any way or will will sue you too.

    I wonder if the rampant nepotism within their company has anything to do with it all.

    Still no formal apology to the employees that went months without pay, calling themselves "online publishers", vaguely mentioning the word "speculation" as if they're victims of a rumor mill.

    I don't know, all I see is more of the usual. A company run by a couple of controlling relatives that haven't a clue what they're doing. There's even less reason now for people to want to work for them.

    I see them becoming a shell of what they once were, like Epic Games, whom are more interested in making money off an overrated engine than putting out decent games. They're still playing the blame game instead of owning up to their own mistakes.

    As long we still get the new Homefront I'm not that bothered about who is putting it out...
