Multiple sources have told Kotaku that the previously reported licensing deal made by Crytek that bailed it out of financial troubles was with Amazon. When the deal was announced Crytek co-founder Faruk Yerli stated "It was a huge one, probably the biggest one. I can’t say anything more in detail, but hopefully we’ll be able to announce it with the partner soon." The deal was reported to be worth between $50 and $70 million though it remains unknown what Amazon plans to do with the license. Amazon has made a number of previous moves in the gaming world including hiring top developers from Portal and Far Cry 2, purchasing studio Double Helix, and launching the Fire TV and this move could indicate that Amazon "has grander ambitions for gaming."
