EA Looking To Buy Crytek?

News has come in – via an article in a German newspaper that speaks of EA possibly beginning the process of getting there hands on Crytek (the developers of Far Cry and the upcoming Crysis). EA has already secured the publishing rights Crysis, and according to the German newspaper article, EA’s Gerhard Florin describes Crytek as a “very, very interesting candidate” for an acquisition.

The Co-founder of Crytek, Faruk Yerli has confirmed that the company have been EA, but did not mention anything about a possible takeover. If EA did complete the acquisition they would most likely also get the hands on the spectacular CryEngine2 game engine which could then be used in some of their own games.

This news comes a little over a week of EA buying another German developer, Phenomic.
