Crysis Remastered, the 2020 paint job of the 2007 PC classic turned meme was supposed to release July 23, with a trailer going live today. Unfortunately, developer Crytek has announced that the game, as well as the trailer premiere, has been delayed by a few weeks to allow for further polish. How much time is “a few weeks”? Your guess is as good as mine.

The original Crysis launched way back in 2007 for the PC as a spiritual successor to Crytek’s previous outing, Far Cry. Crysis would remain a graphical powerhouse and a benchmark for testing gaming PCs for years to come, leading to the birth to the popular expression “but can it run Crysis?”. While Crysis was way ahead of its time in terms of raw visual prowess, it wasn’t really future-proof, especially when it came to CPU utilization. Crytek’s prediction of where CPU power would be in the near future was a bit over the mark. It resulted in the game stuttering every now and then even in the most powerful of PCs, 13 years after release.

Crysis might work some magic on the game’s code and make it more ‘current-gen optimized’ while adding new shiny visual effects courtesy of the new CryEngine for Crysis Remastered.
