Crytek Founder/CEO Comments On The F2P Future Of The Company

The video game industry is ever changing in a variety of ways, whether it’s through the technology that powers the games, how gamers play them, and how they’re offered to us.  Over the last two years we’ve seen the free-to-play business model pick up more steam, even so much now that PS3 and Xbox 360 games have gone the F2P route.  We haven’t seen the F2P model exactly become the norm across a wide array of publishers and developers, but Crytek is embracing the model with open arms based on recent comments made by CEO Cevat Yerli.

TL;DR - Feb 23 - Jet Set, Blizzard F2P, Warfighter

Today in TL;DR I take a quickly glimpse at a couple of major announcements, leaks, and even a rumor. First of all, Medal of Honor is getting another go-round with the sequel to 2010 franchise reboot. Secondly, it looks like Sega is going to be bringing back the best rollerblading/graffiti franchise of all time via XBLA and PSN. Then finally, a brief stop-over at the rumor mill for talks about Blizzard potentially working on a new F2P title.

 

Will Free-To-Play Games Come To Xbox Live?

Next year could be a pivotal moment for the video game industry if a recent rumor actually pans out.  According to IGN, who cites a reliable source, Microsoft could be bringing free-to-play games to Xbox Live.  An ever growing staple in the PC arena, free-to-play games haven’t exactly made a debut on the consoles but that could ultimately change if Microsoft has their way.
