UDK-type product in preparation from Crytek

Crytek has now been quoted to be in preparation of a similar product to Epic Games' free Unreal Development Kit (UDK), for their own particular engine CryEngine version 3. This was from Crytek co-founder Anvi Yerli who has mentioned that there is “a business model in mind” for this, while “the barriers for entry will be very low, and perhaps [it will be distributed] for free”.

This at the moment is very vague of course as the aspects such as the revenue model are not even covered, however as an educator and researcher I would be incredibly interested in an alternative to the UDK which is user-friendly and utilises/sits on the cutting edge CryEngine. Hopefully there will be some more concrete news soon on this.
