The Prague-based developer Warhorse has closed a licensing deal to use CryEngine 3 in its debut game.
Warhorse was founded in July last year by former members of Mafia developer 2K Czech and Bohemia Interactive, which created the Operation Flashpoint IP.
The studio's still unannounced first game will be an RPG, and executive producer Martin Klima sees CryEngine 3 as ideal for the demands of the project.
"We are confident it will allow us to make the vision for our game come true," he said in a statement.
"The team at Warhorse Studios consists of industry veterans from AAA classics such as the Mafia franchise and Operation Flashpoint," added Crytek's Carl Jones.
"We're excited by their vision for an innovative RPG and we are looking forward to working with them to help them achieve that vision with CryENGINE 3."
