He will “continue to serve as a Strategic Shareholder.”

Crytek co-founder Cevat Yerli has stepped down from his role as CEO.

The German game developer best known for creating the Far Cry and Crysis series will now be co-helmed by Yerli’s two brothers, Avni and Faruk Yerli, whom he founded the company with. Cevat will “continue to serve as a Strategic Shareholder.”

In a press release announcing the change, Yerli says the decision was driven by a desire to “recognize the existing leadership’s excellent achievements over these past two years.” He continues by saying he looks forward to helping from a shareholder role, but does not specify how much direct involvement he will have going forward.

Crytek is currently working on the FPS Hunt: Showdown, which launched on Steam Early Access last week, as well as continued development on the 2014 free-to-play FPS Warface and the CryEngine as a whole.
