Crytek has announced that Crysis Remastered has been delayed by “a few weeks” due to the reaction to the leaked trailer which found its way onto YouTube today. The delay is due to the team wishing to add more polish to the classic first person shooter. Here’s the company’s statement:
“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 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 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.”
“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!”
I thought the Switch version looked really good tbh, was it complaints about the other versions?
yeah thought the same; but I mean the Switch is in that funny position that you often are pretty happy with a remastered game looking really fine. I can understand that PS4 users might not sit in that boat.
Yea idk, the comments on the playstation YouTube video was half jokes half this looks bad. Apparently there is a mod of the original that looks better than this.
No wonder Nintendo doesn’t do early teasers, they don’t want to give the fans on the internet time to start a #FIX SAMUS campaign.
Classy. Although it’s been interesting to watch the drama around a certain game that leaked and then released recently and (mostly) everyone hated it.
Sounds a bit like a PR stunt, but who knows.
I think leaks can be a blessing in disguise. It lets the company gauge the reactions of the people they hope to purchase the game. Nothing is worse than blindly buying a game, only to regret it. It’s too expensive to “have faith” in developers these days. This delay is great, because it shows they are listening.
Pokemon Sw/Sh leaked with negative reactions, the developers didn’t adapt. Sure, they made a bunch of money, but lost a lot of respect and a lot of fans.
Better to be on the right side of history.
A #fixsamus campaign is inevitable regardless of when it’s released if Nintendo delivers a subpar product.
Didn’t the Sonic movie make the correct adjustments after testing the waters?
