The Crysis Remastered reveal trailer that was supposed to go live today has been pulled, and the game's July 23 release date will no longer be met. Much like the original announcement, the trailer, screenshots, and release date were leaked yesterday before official channels got the chance to unveil it, with the Microsoft Store being responsible this time.
Crytek made the surprising announcement today on its official Twitter page, stating that "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 commitment, we will need to delay the launch date (all platforms) and trailer premiere by a few weeks"
The studio says that while all features are implemented, it decided to take the time and polish the game further, leading to the "few weeks" of delay. The company also mentioned the unfortunate leak, and stated it has seen the good and the bad reactions to it, and that it is listening.
"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," Crytek further added. "We hope you understand what we’re up to—stay with us while we take the time to make a few more improvements."
Following this development, only the pre-orders for Crysis Remastered's Nintendo Switch version will remain open, since it's the sole platform that already provided the capability. Pre-orders for the PC and other console editions will be available at a later date, possibly when we get to hear about the new release schedule.
