Crytek has announced at the 11th hour that it is delaying the gameplay premiere of Crysis Remastered, which was set to be taking place at 5pm BST today. Earlier, the trailer leaked and Crytek specifically mentions that it was aware of that.The studio is listening to feedback and stated that some of the things seen in that leaked trailer are still being worked on. The studio released a statement confirming that the gameplay premiere would be delayed, and that Crysis Remastered release would be pushed back too to meet standards. You can read the full statement from Crytek below.
Dear Crysis Fans,
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 — and that you 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 pos-sibly can.
We’ll keep you updated on our progress, so please hang in there, and check back here for updates!
Crysis Remastered will focus on the game’s single player campaign, so don’t expect to see Crysis multiplayer return, and will feature remastered graphics and engine optimisations. The remaster is being co-developed by World War Z studio Saber Interactive, who’ve been in the limelight for excellent porting work on The Witcher 3 for Nintendo Switch. Together, they’ll be updating the original game with “high-quality textures and improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping”.
