Crytek is reportedly in discussions with third parties on a possible acquisition sale. According to German website Bild, Tencent has made an offer of 300 million euros for Crytek. However many have questioned the source's veracity due to its tabloid-style reporting.

The reality is that Crytek has been looking into possible buyout deals for a bit now, industry sources like Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad say. Over the years, Crytek has closed all but three branches due to restructuring and revenue losses--its headquarters in Coburg, Germany, and two subsidiaries in Kyiv, Ukraine, and Istanbul, Turkey.

Crytek is currently hiring for dozens of positions to iterate on Cryengine and develop a new unannounced AAA game. Recent Crytek games include a Crysis Remastered, The Climb 2, and the online-driven Hunt: Showdown.

The company has yet to respond to the rumors or reports.
