Crytek is expanding yet again. Days after purchasing the rights to the Homefront series for Crytek UK (the former Free Radical Design), the German company has opened the doors to their first North American branch, Crytek USA.
Crytek USA will be located in Austin, Texas and, according to Gamasutra, will include the “core” of Vigil Games among its new employees. Vigil Games was the only internal THQ studio not to find a buyer in last week’s auction.
The studio will be headed up by David Adams, one of Vigil’s co-founders. Crytek didn’t announce an initial project for their North American branch, but CEO Cevat Yerli did say, “We are extremely excited about the work that we will be undertaking from our strategic new location in Austin.”
