    What customers say

    After launching another successful IP — HUNT: Showdown, a competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, Crytek aimed to bring this amazing game for its end-users. We needed a hosting provider that can offer us high-performance servers with great network speed, latency, and 24/7 support.
    Stefan Neykov Crytek
