Crytek have announced that Crysis Remastered is delayed, after a poor reception to a leaked trailer.
The game’s debut gameplay trailer and release date; July 23rd, leaked prior to its official reveal. The comments to that trailer and reportedly social media showed a disdain for the game’s graphics.
While the original Crysis was considered by many to be a benchmark for the peak of PC gaming graphics, the graphics for Remastered in the trailer were criticized for not looking as good as the 2007 original.
Now, Crytek have issued a statement, declaring they are aware of the leaked trailer’s poor reception, and that the game would be delayed to make improvements.
For those relying on machine translation, you can find the statement below.
“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 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 [sic] 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- 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 is coming soon to Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
