Crytek has had some trouble over the last couple of years. Several studios have closed and games in development, not to mention the employees, have suffered for it. Earlier this year, the heads of Crytek Black Sea rebranded as their own independent game studio, Black Sea Games. Now, it looks like the rest of the original studio has found a home.
Creative Assembly (under their parent company SEGA), the developers of the Total War franchise, Alien: Isolation and co-developers for Halo Wars 2, announced today on Twitter that they have acquired Crytek Black Sea.
