Long life to Embark studio and its fabulous procedural artists dream team !
Hurriyet Daily News reports about a new virtual reality laboratory, which has most recently opened in Germany Istambul. Crytek and Bahçeşehir University (BAU) are running this center. It’s been created as a part of Crytek’s Virtual First Program. This little VR-facility will work as a center for developers and entrepreneurs, who want to work with virtual reality.
The purpose of the center is to help developers with their VR-projects, built with CRYENGINE. This is a pilot project, so we expect a lot of European developers to flock to Istanbul to take part in this initiative. There’ no information about the possible financial help Crytek can provide to the devs.
We are happy to take the first step of our VR First Program along with the Bahçeşehir University. Through such partnerships both in Turkey and in other countries, we seek to create awareness and offer professional equipment to VR developers by unleashing the potential of VR technology.
Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek
