Crytek has announced that it will be releasing Crysis for Nintendo Switch on July 23rd, with the announcement coming through its social media channels. This is not to be confused with Crysis Remastered which has been delayed following concerns raised after a gameplay trailer was leaked, with feedback not being all that positive. That delay meant Crytek cancelled the official game reveal hours before it was set to go ahead.
You may have seen our last update about the Crysis Remastered release, and we have good news for you:
We can confirm that Crysis will still be coming to Nintendo Switch on July 23rd!

In a statement regarding quality and the delay of Crysis Remastered, Crytek released a statement saying:
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 was confirmed in April for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
