We should have received a brand new Crysis Remastered trailer right about now. It should’ve shown what we can expect in the remastered game, and it should’ve made July 23 release date official. Instead, Crytek saw the disappointment of numerous fans over the leaked screenshots of the game. Then they’ve probably seen the comments under the leaked gameplay trailer and decided to hold off the game a bit. Yup, Crytek postponed the game. This should give Crytek and Saber Interactive time to polish it and further upgrade the visuals.
Crysis Remastered Now Has Late Summer Release
Crysis Remastered originally had July 23 as release date. But, after the delay, we can expect the game to arrive during late summer, 2020. Crytek posted on Twitter. The company said that “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.”
Regarding the Crysis Remastered gameplay trailer leak, the company stated that “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 PC 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.”
Let’s be real. Those screenshots and the leaked gameplay trailer have shown a version of Crysis Remastered that doesn’t look like it has been remastered. Textures look worse and the game has supersaturated lighting, with lots of artifacts that make objects blurry. A far cry from the original game and its neutral, realistic lighting that made the game look like it came from the future. We now hope that the delay will allow developers to improve the game visually. To improve it enough for modern gamers to look at Crysis in awe like we did back in 2007.
