Crysis Remastered Release Date Leaked by Xbox
As the world continues to struggle from the pandemic, video game release schedules remains volatile. Notable 2020 delays include Cyberpunk 2077, Ghost of Tsushima, Final Fantasy VII Remake, The Last of Us 2, and others. In the midst of chaos and uncertainty, studios are hesitant to update the community on future video game titles. But on Monday, news leaked regarding the Crysis Remastered release date. Ironically, the leak came from the most unlikely of sources. Let’s dive in.
During times of “crisis,” video game studios often hearken back to earlier success. Such is the case of German developer Crytek. The 2007 first-person shooter set the bar for the genre with its real-life graphics and customization. However, in the early 2010s, the Crysis series fell on hard times as a result of lackluster sequels. But a few months ago, Crytek shocked the video game world by revealing a remaster of the original Crysis game. While the industry expected Crytek to release the remaster in 2020, no one knew when the game would drop. Until now.
Thanks to a surprise listing on the official Microsoft store, Xbox revealed that Crysis launches on July 23, 2020. Few industry critics expected Crytek to release this summer, but fans are ecstatic for a return to Lingshan Islands. While the staff at GamingROI expect Crytek to confirm the release date within the next few days, the Nintendo Switch release peaked our curiosity. Based on the leaked screenshots below, the Nintendo Switch version could be compromised in comparison to the PS4 and Xbox One versions. The question remains as to whether the Switch release of the graphically intensive shooter will coincide with Microsoft and Sony. Time will tell if Nintendo’s portal console can handle the remaster, but the industry should be excited for another major 2020 release. If Crytek can enhance the gameplay and graphics, Crysis Remastered might be the sleeper hit of 2020.
