The company Crytek introduced a new version of the engine CryEngine, showing a technical demo, and also talked about the royalties that developers will have to pay for its use. Now, if the game project using CryEngine 5.5 could earn more than $ 5,000, Crytek’s deductions will be 5%.
Earlier the engine was available for download for free, and the developer himself decided how much to list for his support. Over the past five years, the business model has changed several times. In 2014, Crytek introduced a system of subscriptions, in 2016 – “pay what you want”, which is also a thing of the past.
