Here's a rumor to jumpstart your day: Crytek might be whipping up an MMO
. The LinkedIn profile of Crytek senior IT manager James Dennett suggests that the Crysis developer may be working on an unannounced MMO. Dennett's profile
lists experience "designing, testing and implementing as part of the development team the systems infrastructure for an MMO online game." Of course, that's hardly concrete evidence, but there's more.
Crytek recently purchased
the following domain names: "codename-kingdoms.com, codename-kingdoms.net, codenamekingdoms.com, codenamekingdoms.net, kingdomsthegame.com, kingdomsthegame.net, kingdoms-thegame.com, and kingdoms-thegame.net." Also, about a year ago, the company filed several trademarks
covering computer game software and electronic games, one being "Kingdoms." Noticing a trend?
This is nothing more than speculation, and Crytek could simply be adding MMO features to CryEngine – especially since the popular MMORPG Aion is already using the engine.
