Crytek hit the market with a bang when it introduced its Far Cry video game and wowed PC gamers with one of the best video games of all time. Crytek followed Far Cry up with the equally fantastic Crysis. Crytek has now purchased another game development firm called Free Radical.

Free Radical was having financial problems and had gone onto Administration in late December. That left the firm running a skeleton crew and looking for a solution that might keep the company running.

The solution turned out to be a purchase by Crytek. Free Radical has little information to share and doesn't know if it will be working on PC or console focused games at this point. All we know is more games are coming and will have to stay tuned for more info.
