I mean seriously, it's so fucking obvious it's not even funny. This needs to happen ASAP.

While WarCry would make sense in light of their previous game and technology names (Far Cry, Crysis, CryEngine) as well as company name (Crytek), the real reason I suspect they went with "Warface" is probably the fact that "Warcry" is pretty generic and would, therefore, be hard to protect as an unique trademark.

Because Warface is a dumb name I can rally behind.

@AgentDanger: yea but with WarCry it keeps that "tradition" going. Feels like a cop out going to WarFace

Sure, because WarFace isn't generic at all.

In terms of sheer amount of dumb, Warface wins. At least Warcry would have made sense on multiple levels.

I have no idea. Warface is such a bad title.

There is a game called WarFace. There is no reason not to let this happen.

Actually, I think CryFace would be a much better name

But in terms of securing and establishing a name for their product/service WarFace was probably more unique - as strange as that name is ;)

They should call their next game CryWar and make it some sort of internet forum-simulator.

Warface is a really, really, really, really dumb name.

That RPS article blows me away, It's much easier to see what happened to Crysis2 when you see that Yerli is living in a fantasy land. It seems he isn't down to earth enough to focus on the important things like gameplay but not crazy enough to actually create something really unique. . . .

God I loved the first half of Crysis, I'd be fine with more of that.

Dumb =/= generic. WarCry is a spell in about every RPG game and probably the name of some tablet top RPG. WarFace is silly sounding but at least it isn't common.
