Crytek Not Paying Employees on Time
Filed under: CRYTEK

Crytek may be denying allegations that it's in bankruptcy, but according to sources who have reached out to Kotaku, everything is far from rosy over in Crytek-land.

Employees have told Kotaku that Crytek has not been paying them on time and that they work in a "tense, unstable environment, plagued by poor communication and a number of high-level staff departures at the company's biggest studios in Germany and Britain." Employees apparently openly talk about leaving and finding new jobs, and one employee even estimated that over 100 people have left over three months.

The big problem, however, is Crytek regularly not paying employees and then covering up the delays with promises that things will get better.

"Trying to confine the problem rather than tackling it is not the way to go about this anymore; it's too big now," one current Crytek employee told Kotaku. "Honest communication, inclusion, and a work environment based on trust could have gone a long way, and may have stopped people from leaving."

What's worse is that higher level employees seem to still be enjoying perks such as paid travel between studios, new office chairs, and new laptop bags while some employees haven't been paid in literally months.

Something is definitely rotten over at Crytek, and the employees have hoped that by speaking out to the press, change will happen.

Licensing the new Cryengine out like their doing now should not only help put them back on track financially, but also lead to a surplus. Unless devs decide to use Unreal Engine 4 instead, but going by how many games were announced at E3 running on the new Cryengine, it would seem as if Crytek still has a bright future.
