10 Decisions That Took Warface to Our First 10 Million Users

Nick Button-Brown  |  General Manager, Crytek GmbH


Location: Offenbachsaal

Format: Lecture
Track: Production
Vault Recording: Video


This session is a lighthearted journey through the last 7 years of development on Warface as Crytek moved from a traditional games platform to a free-to-play business model. Nick Button-Brown will look at 10 key decision points in those 7 years, the decisions we made, and how we adapted when those decisions were not right.

Takeaway

The attendees will gain insight into the challenges Crytek faced, the partners that we worked with, and how we addressed the challenges. Maybe a few people will learn to not make the same mistakes that we made.

Intended Audience

Anyone looking at games as a service or just looking for general insight into the games industry. No prerequisite knowledge is necessary.
