Recently, Crytek pulled the plug on Crysis Remastered due to the leaks that happened earlier. This was because the release of the screenshots and trailer particularly didn’t impress most of the fans.
In fact, Crysis Remastered outcome was worse than the original game. However, Crytek has now made the call to pause the launching of Crysis Remastered so that they can improve the game’s mechanics up to the standards everyone has come to expect.
In written words, here’s what Crytex stated on their twitter handle:
As you know, Crysis Remastered will be coming into the world this year — and at the same time, the Crysis IP will debut on the Nintendo Switch!
Your passion for the Crysis franchise deserves an undeniably high-quality game, and we are committed to delivering just that. To ensure 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 to polish the game. You might be aware of the leak yesterday and want you to know; we’ve seen the reactions — the good and the bad –and we’re listening! We’re still working on several things in-game, as well as the storefront. Please keep the love coming, and rest assured, you’ll have the game you love shortly!
The 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 the game in your hand as soon as we possibly can. We’ll keep you updated on our progress, so please hand in there, and check back for updates!
“Crysis Remastered will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain 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, particle effects will also be added where applicable. Further additions such as volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections provide the game with a major visual upgrade.”
Crysis Remastered is rumored to be dropping later this July on Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PS4. However, after the recent postponement, a new release date hasn’t been specified yet. Check back for timely updates!
