Crytek, creators of PC-Only FPS Crysis, are going to stop just producing for PCs.

In an interview with PC Play, Crytek's president, Cevat Yerli, said the change was due to piracy (yar!):

We are suffering currently from the huge piracy that is encompassing Crysis. We seem to lead the charts in piracy by a large margin, a chart leading that is not desirable. I believe that’s the core problem of PC Gaming, piracy. To the degree PC Gamers that pirate games inherently destroy the platform. Similar games on consoles sell factors of 4-5 more. It was a big lesson for us and I believe we wont have PC exclusives as we did with Crysis in future. We are going to support PC, but not exclusive anymore.

So still PC games, just not exclusively PC games.
