Another game has fallen victim to 2020. This time, it’s Crytek’s endeavor to bring Crysis to more modern platforms. The Crysis Remastered Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions have all been delayed. This is a final hour sort of thing too, as it was supposed to launch on July 23, 2020. Fortunately, it seems to be a brief delay that will only result in a few more weeks needed.
The announcement was made via the official Twitter account. It confirmed this affects not only the full launch of the game, but also the release of a new trailer for the game and pre-orders on all platforms other than the Nintendo eShop. This is because pre-orders for the $29.99 Crysis Remastered Switch version are already open.
Here is the full statement. It also advised people to watch the official Crysis Twitter account for future updates.
As you know, Crysis Remastered will be coming into the world this year–and at the same time the Crysis IP will debut on Nintendo Switch!
Your passion for the Crysis franchise deserves an undeniably high-quality game, and we are committed to delivering just that. To ensure that we meet that commitment, we will need to delay the launch date (all platforms) and trailer premiere by a few weeks. Because they already started, pre-orders for Switch will stay open, but pre-orders for all other platforms will be delayed as well.
The features you’re looking forward to are already set, but we want to take the time on polishing the game. 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! 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!
This extra time until release will allow us to get Crysis Remastered up to the PC and console-breaking standard you’ve come to expect from Crysis games. We hope you understand what we’re up to–stay with us while we take the time to make a few more improvements. Stay tuned, and we’ll have that game in your hands as soon as we possibly can.
We’ll keep you updated on our progress, so please hang in there, and check back here for updates!
Crysis Remastered Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions are in development. The original Crysis is available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
