Crysis company opens eighth worldwide studio in Turkish city; will support free-to-play endeavors.
Crytek has expanded its operations. The Crysis company today announced the opening of Crytek Istanbul, the developer's eighth outfit worldwide.
Crytek also has offices in Frankfurt, Germany; Kiev, Ukraine; Budapest, Hungary; Sofia, Bulgaria; Seoul, South Korea; Nottingham, United Kingdom; and Shanghai, China.
Crytek Istanbul will support the growth of Crytek's free-to-play initiatives and will focus on the Warface and Gface brands. In addition, the new company will oversee the expansion of the CryEngine business in Turkey and in the Middle East and North Africa regions.
The new Crytek office in Istanbul currently does not have any job openings posted to its careers page.
Crytek's expansion into Istanbul is a homecoming of sorts for the company, as founders and brothers Avni, Cevat, and Faruk Yerli are from Turkey.

Warface looks pretty neat. Also nice to know Crytek is expanding really well.. looking forward to Crysis 3.
Istanbul is not the capital of Turkey. It is the most popular and crowded city of Turkey :)
And I'm very excited about that.
Eddie Makuch Thanks for writing the news. Don't worry too much about your confusion. Next time when someone mentions anything about Turkey, Istanbul or Ankara, for sure you'll know more than you knew then.
turkey might be the only place on earth to make violent video games from here on out, thanks to obama.
@buccomatic What the heck are you talking about dude! The Crytek is found by 3 Turkish brothers so they decided to open an office in their native country! What is that have to with Turkey making violent games or due to Obama and shit! I can't believe you had the stupidity to include politics in this article!!! Bty, Who makes COD, Battlefield, GTA and so many more violent games; you ever wondered about that! Made in USA! Maybe you should look at your own country about being violent!
@buccomatic See! I told you he was a Muslim!

not surprised, istanbul is the biggest city in turkey and has the most expensive mansions/villas in istanbul compared to the rest of the world :)
@DespVand It was Constantinople until 1453 and since 1453, it is called ISTANBUL!!! I see that you are Greek based on your user name (Despina Vandi the Musician!) When are you guys going to end this stupidity over naming Istanbul to Constantinople???
Even old New York was once New Amsterdam.
Why they changed it, I can't say.
Guess they liked it better that way!
I was waiting for Crytek to open a studio here in ?stanbul till the first Far Cry was released. Now there is a studio that i can apply to when i graduate from college this year:)
Hey, it's been 89 years since Istanbul was capital :D Get your facts straight man, please. It looks like a joke than a proper article.
Crytek guys are probably the best game programers ever. you should watch in pc the evolution of his cryengine from far cry to crysis 2. just fcking amazing.
Eddie.. Why have you done this? Now the whole parliament has to move 350 kilometers to the northwest.
Mount & Blade: Warband was my all-time favorite games
FYI, it's developed by Turkish studio
(My Comments has nothing to do with Crytek though)
I recently opened a brothel in the grand city of Sydney, capital of Australia. Ya'll welcome to come and sample the merchandise.
@thebiggunner He currently thinks that Suleiman is the president of turkey and he's living inside Hagia Sophia with his harem...I won't be surprised if he actually believes that...After all Istanbul is the capital city of Turkey right!? LOL
