The bad news contiunes to pile up for any and all things related to Crytek. That includes the recently-established Austin branch, which first opened in 2013 from the remnants of defunct Darksiders developer Vigil. In the wake of Homefront: The Revolution rights bring transferred to Deep Silver, Hunt: Horros of the Gilded Age is undergoing a similar transition to Crytek Frankfurt, with the Austin studio suffering massive layoffs, as a result.
The report comes courtesy of Gamasutra. Hunt was originally set to be Crytek USA's debut effort. Austin studio employees are being encouraged to re-apply for jobs with Crytek Frankfurt, though Kotaku added that a number of key developers at the studio have already departed after Crytek had failed to pay them.
