Crytek has expanded its operations. The Crysis company today announced the opening of Crytek Istanbul, the developer's eighth outfit worldwide.
Crytek also has offices in Frankfurt, Germany; Kiev, Ukraine; Budapest, Hungary; Sofia, Bulgaria; Seoul, South Korea; Nottingham, United Kingdom; and Shanghai, China.
Crytek Istanbul will support the growth of Crytek's free-to-play initiatives and will focus on the Warface and Gface brands. In addition, the new company will oversee the expansion of the CryEngine business in Turkey and in the Middle East and North Africa regions.
The new Crytek office in Istanbul currently does not have any job openings posted to its careers page.
Crytek's expansion into Istanbul is a homecoming of sorts for the company, as founders and brothers Avni, Cevat, and Faruk Yerli are from Turkey.
