Rumour: Free Radical bought by Crytek

Wednesday, 4th February 2009 00:20 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Haze writer Rob Yescombe has apparently confirmed to 1UP that Free Radical is to be bought by Crytek.

Free Rad hit trouble just before Christmas last year, laying off 100 employees over the break.

The fate of the company is to be announced this week. Sounds as though it already has.

Thanks, Johnny Cullen.

    This could mean if they do make a Timesplitters4 it could be pretty good :P
