Crysis Remastered Delayed Following Mixed Response to Leaks

Crysis Remastered Delayed Following Mixed Response to Leaks

The team is taking a few weeks after an unexpected early response.

The original Crysis is still due to get a remaster, but Crytek will be taking a little extra time to show it off. Following a leak yesterday, Crytek announced that it would be delaying the launch date and trailer premiere for a few weeks to polish Crysis Remastered a bit more.

The trailer and release date leaked yesterday on the Microsoft Store, and clearly reactions were mixed. This comes after the existence of a Crysis remaster was already leaked earlier this year. Crytek really can't catch a break.

"The features you're looking forward to are already set, but we want to take the time on polishing the game," said the Crysis Team in an update on Twitter. "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."

While it's not as dire a shift as Amazon's Crucible un-launching into closed beta, it's a fairly notable delay, especially as the trailer was set to premiere today. Hopefully the team can take some time and tune things up. Crysis is a well-remembered game, not just for its PC-crunching potential, so expectations are predictably high in the graphics department. We'll see if the extra time pays off. Crysis Remastered will still be due this year, though an exact date has yet to be confirmed, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
