Crysis Remastered Delayed Due To Fans Feedback From Leaks
Developer Crytek today announced that Crysis Remastered has officially been delayed. Announced back in April for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, the upcoming video game was expected to release a new trailer this week, but that too has been delayed. No exact release date had previously been revealed, but according to leaks yesterday it was set to be revealed as July 23rd today. It would appear that the delay is due in no small part to the reactions to the leaks.
The statement then goes on to directly address yesterday’s leaks. “You might be aware of the leak yesterday, and we want you to know: we’ve seen all the reactions — the good and the bad and we’re listening,” it notes. “We’re still working on a number of things in game, as well as the storefront. Please keep the love coming, and rest assure, you’ll have the game you love shortly.”

The pre-order pages on each platform would have also gone live today, but those are being held back as well. The eShop listing went live in some countries (here’s the European page), so Crytek will be keeping pre-orders open in those regions. Everyone else will need to be patient until Crytek is ready to properly reveal this remaster.
It’s disappointing news, to be sure, but one that makes sense. Crysis has been notorious for its ability to bring even the most powerful PCs to their knees. If this remaster launched in a less-than-stellar state, Crytek would never live it down. Delaying the title to make sure it reaches the expected standards that the Crysis name carries is a smart move.
Crysis Remastered is an upcoming enhanced version of the original 2007 first-person shooter. It will support updated visual effects and techniques including 4K resolution, HDR10, and API-agnostic ray tracing. The game will come with the full single-player campaign featured in the original Crysis, but there’s been no word yet on whether the multiplayer portion is in the works. We’ll have more news on Crysis Remastered when we get it. Until then, keep your eye on the official Crysis website for more info.
