Crytek confident in making Free-To-Play Single-Player work

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli believes Crytek can make the free-to-play model work for traditional single-player experiences.

Yerli and the company have been in the spotlight lately, for boldly announcing and establishing their transition to free-to-play only gaming titles, and eventually planning to phase out producing traditional retail-releases, favouring digital distribution for their future games.

In the most recent interview with Yerli, the Crytek boss briefly outlines what he believes makes the current model wrong and free-to-play the best model for moving forward.

"Customers have to put up with all this crap right now, legal notices, copyright protection. The best way to get rid of all that is go free," he said.

"The gamers get what they want – free access – and if your game is good enough you can hook them in, whether that’s a single-player game, or multiplayer, or co-op, or an RPG, an RTS, or Fifa, or whatever, it really doesn’t matter.

For every game you can find a solution. For every single one of them. It’s a creative challenge, nothing else."

In response to the question on how free-to-play models for an "epic narrative shooter" like Crysis 3 would work, Yerli insisted the company would make it happen.

"We'll figure out how to make a game like Crysis 3 work. If the proposition is, the gamer gets the games for free, well, that's better for the gamer. And what's best for the gamer is best for the industry."

What do you think about Crytek's shift to free-to-play models and a complete move to digital distribution for their future titles? Tell us below.
