Crytek Sells Off Black Sea Studio To Sega, Total War Creators

The bad news? Crytek has sold off its Black Sea Studio. The good news? The employees of the newly acquired studio will now be getting paid...on time.

Sega Europe and Creative Assembly have acquired Crytek’s Sofia, Bulgaria-based Black Sea Studio, according to an announcement from Crytek. The studio, previously known as Crytek Black Sea, will now operate as Creative Assembly Sofia. Crytek announced in December it was closing five studios — including its Bulgaria office — with only the developer’s Frankfurt, Germany and Kiev, Ukraine studios remaining. That announcement came after reports that Crytek employees were not being paid.
