as more and more news report about the financial issues of the Cryengine developer, Crytek, more and more “inside sources” confirm that Wargaming is indeed interested in possibly buying a share of the failing company, providing an income stream the company so desperately needs. This time, it was the renowned German welt.de portal with its article, that is linked above. The article describes what was basically said before, the last part is however quite interesting.
