LOL it's since february "necessary" it's from month to month "necessary" .... you know what is necessary ? To release finally a well working up to date engine.It's sad but the delay is necessary.
If the update life of Cryengine will go like the 5.4 release... at the end of the year... soon... we will be the only members here on the forums.
I mean just check the forum posts of the last 3 months.... it's looking really bad right now... If crytek is serious about offering they're engine to indies, they need like today, now, a bigger team that is working on the engine.
