Sniper dev licenses CryENGINE3

It knows "what gamers want to play".

Sniper: Ghost Warrior developer City Interactive has licensed Crytek's CryENGINE3 for two new games.

The Polish developer offered no details as to what those games might be, but expect a release for both of them in the "next couple of years".

Sniper: Ghost Warrior, despite being not very good at all, has been quite the success story for the studio. Revenue for the first nine months of the year is up 230 per cent.

Carl Jones, director of CryENGINE global business development offered up a little insight as to why. "City has shown with the success of Sniper: Ghost Warrior that they understand what gamers want to play.

"CryENGINE3 and our dedicated, global support team will help them achieve their vision on more platforms, with the speed and high quality values that our engine and tools uniquely provide to developers."
