ABSTRACT
The article reports that studio Free Radical Design has been acquired by German video game developer Crytek. The developer won the bidding after administrator Resolve Partners decided to sell off Free Radical. The studio will remain in Nottingham, England, as Crytek UK and approximately 40 workers will be retained in the company. The company's most recent release, the first person shooter Haze solicited poor reviews and sales, leaving the company in financial trouble.
