Some very coy teasers from Crytek have shown fans of the iconic Crysis that something is coming. The company just posted a few tweets that teased the potential of a Crysis Remastered release that’s coming soon. Fans of the visually intense shooter franchise were understandably excited, and now they have a reason to be much more pumped.
It turns out that Crytek was just biding their time, as the developer has now dropped details on their website revealing the release. The page revealing the new game was quickly pulled, but not before folks definitely noticed. The game is coming to all of the modern consoles, and yes that means Switch too. This is awesome and it makes me wonder how they’re going to pull it off.
The remaster is described as coming to “PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and – for the very first time – Nintendo Switch.” The details haven’t been confirmed though, leading some to wonder whether the PS4 and Xbox One will be the target, or if Crytek is holding the remaster out for the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles in the next generation.
Some details were revealed though, showing a newly rebuilt graphics engine in the works for the remaster, as well as Crytek’s other games in the future. For one thing, the game will use an API-agnostic ray tracing solution to allow for much more polished and beautiful lighting in their games.
