Crysis Remastered delay comes after leaked trailer draws ire

Whelp.

Crysis Remastered has been delayed after gameplay leaked early and fans reportedly weren’t too pleased with what they’d seen.

While we were meant to be shown official gameplay footage today, the trailer embedded below made the rounds ahead of time. This has prompted Crytek to release a statement asserting it needs “a few weeks” to polish things up.

“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 committment, 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,” Crytek’s statement reads.

“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 hop 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 possibly can. We’ll keep you updated on our progress, so please hang in there, and check back here for updates!”

Crysis Remastered was originally scheduled for a 23 July release across Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch. We’ll let you know when the new release date is named.
