Crytek saw an exodus of staff during 2016 as wages went unpaid for months. Many staff have gone to Cloud Imperium Games, maker of Star Citizen. Morale is low, we understand.

CIG might be about to get themselves a fresh batch of low morale developers, it seems  :rolleyes:

Yeah, but I don't believe those who were laid off, are high caliber engineers.

Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Even if we assume they are really talented engineers, does it help Star Citizen in any relevant way?

And reading the article:
The staff were a part of Crytek's in-house publishing and marketing team.

publishing and marketing does not seem like an engineering job.
But if they take the place of Sandi Star Citizen could be better off maybe?  :smug: :sandance:

I don't think they need publishing and marketing teams; especially not in Germany.
