Crytek has delayed the upcoming release of Crysis Remastered.
A recent listing on Microsoft Store – which has since been taken down – had the release date pegged on July 29. But the game is now going to be delayed “a few weeks” in order to deliver a “high-quality game.”
In a statement posted to Twitter, the company writes:
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 on polishing 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 a number of 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!
Rumors first emerged earlier this year that a new Crysis game was in the works. In April, Crytek revealed Crysis Remastered. Just as the company was set to release a new trailer and screenshots, the content leaked on Microsoft Store.
Crysis Remastered is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
