but cry engine is a great engine, right?
nope,onti lang gumagamit ng engine nila. Mas maganda pa rin Unreal Engine.
honga dami gumagamit unreal engine. parang di lang narealize yun potential ng cry engine dahil onti gumagamit.
masyado cguro mabigat sa hardware kaya konti
parang fox engine ba?
Yung fox engine, feeling ko naman, hindi shared engine yun kasi sa mgs games lang siya ginagamit eh.
Mas matagal na kasi sa multi platform scene ang Unreal giving it a broader talent pool. Madami nang seasoned veteran developers nakagamit ever since lumabas UE kaya mas kampante sila itong gamitin for rapid development. Cryengine recently lang nag start mag multiplatform (excluding Cryengine 1 na binenta nila sa Ubisoft.. since Cryengine 2 nag start ang Crysis series which was created from the ground up para iwas lawsuit sa binentahan nila ng Cryengine 1.)
So if I was to start developing a game, I'd rather choose from a pool of veterans para lesser bugs sa game than gamble on an upstart engine. Producing a game is a risky affair, and choosing seasoned developers who has a mastery of the said engine ever since the 90s minimizes the risk a bit.

Simple, Crytek makes lackluster games and are unable to fulfill the EA overlord's demands of prophet.
Apart from genre defining Far Cry and the overused meme spawning Crysis 1, they never really got back to do what they are known for.
Crytek was a legend, bowing down to EA took it away
