I know cryengine is free to use as long as you don't charge for your games,but what if you want to charge?
The rumor is that companies pay around 1.2 million dollars for 1 license. I mean for me,a single developer would be impossible to pay that amount of money.

Do you know if they can make something like: we get 40% and you the rest?
Or how does this work exactly?
