EA Partners and Crytek Announce Deal Extension
for Multiplatform Development of Crysis 2

Next Installment of the
Critically-Acclaimed Crysis Franchise Will Be First Game Built on Crytek’s
Multiplatform CryENGINE 3 Technology

Electronic Arts Inc. announced today that it
has agreed to a deal extension with Crytek GmbH, the award-winning
developers of the Crysis universe, to publish Crysis 2.
Renowned for their technical excellence, artistic craftsmanship and
commitment to quality, Crytek is building Crysis 2 on their new
state-of-the-art multiplatform game development solution CryENGINE(R)3 for
the Xbox 360, the PLAYSTATION 3, and the PC.

"The development of Crysis 2 marks a
major stepping stone for our studio," said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of
Crytek. "This is not only the next game in the Crysis franchise, it’s the
first title we are developing for consoles and the first title being built
on CryENGINE 3. We are excited to have the support of EA Partners again as
we work together to make the launch of Crysis 2 a huge event."

"Nothing speaks more to the success of the EA
Partners program than when a studio the caliber of Crytek continues to work
with us," said David DeMartini, Senior Vice President and General Manager of
EA Partners. "Crytek is already one of the elite PC development studios in
the world and we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with them in
bringing their award-winning technology and gameplay to more platforms and a
wider audience with Crysis 2."
