Crytek’s Lead Graphics Engineer Leaves for id Software

/ 6 years ago


More bad news for Crytek this week, their lead graphics engineer, Tiago Sousa has packed up and left for id software. He’ll now be working on the new Doom remake as lead rendering programmer, he’ll also be working on the id Tech 6 game engine which will power the new Doom title.

Sousa has been at Crytek for 11 years and worked on a huge range on projects such as all three Crysis titles, CryENGINE 3, Ryse: Son of Rome for the Xbox One, Warface and “Undisclosed multiplatform titles”. Seeing Sousa go after such a history is obviously a big blow for the already struggling company.

The fact that Sousa has left leaves Crytek in an even worse situation than before. Considering most of Crytek’s UK based staff no longer bother going to work because they were not getting paid at all or being paid late. Crytek have also lost significant others from their ranks including game director and development manager for Homefront: The Revolution, Ben Harris.

What will become of Crytek in the long run? Are we seeing another THQ episode? Only time will tell.
