Crysis Remastered Delayed From Its July 23 Launch Date

Crytek says it still has a little work to do on Crysis Remastered.

It looks like the release of Crysis Remastered has been delayed. Crytek, the game's developer, released a statement on Twitter early Wednesday, confirming the delay on all platforms. A new definitive launch date was not provided.

Instead, Crytek said that it would be "a few weeks" before the first-person shooter would become available to everyone. Currently, Switch pre-orders are still open, though those on PC, PS4, and Xbox One will remain closed for now. 

As with some other recent game delays, Crysis Remastered is shifting its launch date to provide further polish to the final product. However, the developer did say that most of the game's features are already set in stone, asking the community to "stay with us while we take the time to make a few more improvements."  

Crysis Remastered was unveiled back in April. More recently, an alleged release date of July 23, alongside a trailer for the game, was leaked on the Microsoft Store. Both the MS Store page and its trailer have since been removed, though YouTuber EvilBoris has saved the trailer for posterity

Crytek did not specifically mention what their planned improvements would be outside of continued work on a "storefront." Though, some believe the tweaks will revolve around the game's graphics, which have been a polarizing subject on Reddit, ResetEra, and YouTube in the last 24 hours. 

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more on Crysis Remastered in the coming weeks. Hopefully, we'll know more sooner rather than later.
