UK-based Crysis and Homefront 2 developer Crytek has opened a new U.S. studio in Austin, Texas, led by David Adams, the former GM and co-owner of the recently shuttered Vigil Games. 

At Crytek USA, Adams will lead a team of “35 experienced developers.”

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the newest Crytek studio, which will boast some of the brightest development talent in the industry,” said Adams. “The studio’s launch represents Crytek’s commitment to delivering diverse and high quality content to players everywhere.”

With the opening of Crytek USA, the Crysis developer now has studios in Europe, Asia, and North America.

    Well I didn’t like Darksiders but it wasnt enough for me to dislike the guy. I can’t wait to see what they will do.

    Good to see some of the Vigil team find a new home.

    I thought I would share what Jason Rubin said on twitter -

    “Great news for Vigil, at least the core team: Thanks to Crytek for saving as much as they could of a fantastic team.”

    Seems like everyone’s profiting form THQ’s shutter. This feels so wrong somehow and yet, people bouncing back quickly makes me smile. Hope everyone else at Vigil lands safely too.

    Their cry engine is very good. It may be better than Unreal.
