Crysis Remastered is delayed before it was even officially dated. After the release date and screenshots leaked on Monday, the reveal trailer leaked too. However, upon watching the trailer, fans realized the “remaster” looked like the original game running on the lowest graphical setting. Fans of the series felt let down by the remaster. Furthermore, the poor visual quality made the game look like a shoddy port more than a remaster.
Crytek decided to delay the remaster by several weeks to fine-tune the visuals. The developer acknowledged the leaks and disappointed fans by promising to work on the game.
Although Crysis Remastered had yet to be officially dated, the leak revealed a 23 July 2020 release date. However, the delay could push it into late August now as Crytek polishes up the visuals in order to make it the so-called “console-breaking” game they promised in the first place.

Crysis Remastered will release on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch when it does launch. The game will supposedly feature revamped visuals, higher resolution and HDR. However, the leaked game file size shows it was only sitting at 7GB. The same size as the original release. This shows the developer did not increase texture size and resolution at all. Let’s hope they do better for the remaster.
