Crytek has announced that its CryEngine 3 SDK has been downloaded over 430,000 times since its release in August.

The SDK was released on August 18 and within a week was downloaded over 100,000 times, and by week three surpassed the 300,000 mark.

“It’s great news for us, and it seems like global coverage, not just Europe-heavy,” Crytek co-founder Avni Yerli told Develop. “It’s being picked up equally across the US, Europe and Asia.

“While we have been contacted by a lot of game developers, we also have people from outside gaming that want to use the engine. But of course we hope indies will have great ideas and use the engine and we can’t wait to see them make really innovate games. That’s going to be really fun.”

As of this post, it has been downloaded 449,144 times.
