Earlier this week, Crytek’s Crysis Remastered was leaked, and seemingly had a release date of 23 July 2020. However, fans of the franchise have since criticized the leaked video and screenshots of the game on Nintendo Switch.
It looks like Crytek is going back to polish the game even more, as they have announced that Crysis Remastered has been delayed by “a few weeks”.
The full statement reads:
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—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 is slated to release for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, but no new release date has been announced by Crytek as of yet. In the meantime, check out the leaked trailer for the game below.
