Ex-Crytek Employee Starts a GoFundMe Campaign to Support Legal Action to Get Pay Checks

Rumors about Crytek not being able to pay its staff, with some employees saying that their paychecks have arrived late, or have never came, have been going around the net for about half of the year now. As reported by Kotaku, the situation has grown bad enough that one former employee, an FX artist by the name of Ludviq Lindqvist, has launched a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for legal action against the company.

Lindqvist  in his GoFundMe claims to have been employed at Crytek’s Frankfurt HQ from March 2015 to December 2016, but quit on December 8 after going two months without being paid.

“Crytek has failed to pay salaries on time starting May 2016. Ever since May this year, salaries have been delayed,” he wrote. “Today as I’m creating this GoFundMe campaign, 14th December 2016, it was 58 days since Crytek paid me my September salary. Two whole months have failed to make it to my account. The last salary I got was one month late.” 

In the pitch he says “all Crytek employees are in the same situation,” which is inline with complaints that have surfaced on Imgur and Glassdoor.

Crytek gained fame with Far Cry and Crysis games, but ran into trouble with Ryse: Son of Rome, a launch title for the Xbox One that never really got going. They same was true for the later PC release.
