There's been ALOT of announcements been made recently such as....
The games developer Crytek, famous for Crysis and Farcry games, have acquired Free Radical Design off Administrators ReSolve Partners. No details of how much was paid for the company, and no news what has happened to there IP's and ongoing projects such as Timesplitters 4, Star Wars Battlefront 3.
