Homefront: The Revolution game director Hasit Zala has left his position at Crytek UK, Kotaku reports.
Zala started at Free Radical Design in 1999, and stayed after Crytek’s acquisition of the studio in 2009. He had leading roles on the multiplayer development for both Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, and was also the game director on Crytek UK’s only announced project Homefront: The Revolution.
Citing sources close to the matter, Kotaku reports that Zala has now left the studio. Crytek UK’s development manager Ben Harris also departed the company this month, following multiple reports of unrest at the studio.
Crytek denied the reports claiming Crytek UK was in financial trouble late last month, however more have since surfaced claiming that the studio’s staff had stopped working due to not receiving their full pay in months.
