Back in the day, Crysis was the crown jewel of graphically superior games. Many would remember the whole “Can it Run Crysis” meme, and it was accurate to an extent. All three games on their respective launches were able to push hardware with maxed-out settings. Many would love to see how the games fare with modern hardware, and thankfully, Crytek has done just that, recently announcing the Crysis Remastered Trilogy.
Each game is enhanced to look and play beautifully on today’s platforms, delivering the finest Crysis experience for both newcomers to our classic franchise or players wishing to relive the adventure.

The remastered first game was already released a while back, and now they have added Crysis 2 and 3 to the mix as well. Both of the upcoming games will launch on all platforms like the first one and that includes the Xbox, Playstation, PC, and Nintendo Switch. However, according to Crytek, the experience will be smoother on next-generation consoles. Another thing to note, the upcoming Trilogy will only focus on the single-player campaign, so multiplayer will be left out.
As for a release date, Crytek hasn’t given out anything specific, they however, are aiming for a fall release this year.
