Earlier this week, Crytek began sharing a series of teasers hinting at a reboot of Crysis. The sci-fi first person shooter series saw its latest major release in 2007 with Crysis 3, and the franchise has remained dormant since. However, it seems that Crytek themselves have spilled the beans on an upcoming Crysis remaster.
As discovered by Twitter user lashman, Crytek’s official website accidentally revealed details about their upcoming title.
“Crysis Remastered brings new graphic features, high-quality textures, and the CRYENGINE’s native hardware- and API-agnostic ray tracing solution for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and – for the very first time – Nintendo Switch,” reads the text hidden within the page.
Crysis is one PC gaming’s most iconic franchises, and while it is not the sequel many fans were anxiously anticipating, a reboot of one of the most graphically appealing games of its time is cause for excitement. Furthermore, thanks to advancements in technology, even Nintendo Switch users will be able to experience the brilliant visuals of Crysis.
Before the web page was taken down, IGN managed to grab a screenshot of what appears to be a gameplay teaser.
While developer Crytek is yet to officially announce the news, a reveal trailer is most definitely on its way. As for its release date, the snippet of information only notes that the game is “coming soon”. The first Crysis game launched over a decade ago in November 2017, so it is possible that Crytek is planning to release it around that time.
No one can say for certain what this release means for the future of the franchise. However, after years of inactivity, the chances of Crysis 4 are now looking better than ever.
