In a recent update from the studio, Crytek announced that the release date and gameplay trailer for Crysis Remastered had been delayed. The trailer was originally scheduled to premiere on July 1. In the statement, the studio cited that in order to deliver a high-quality game to players, "we will need to delay the launch date (all platforms) and trailer premiere by a few weeks."
"The features you're looking forward to are already set, but we want to take the time on polishing the game." They asked for fans to continue supporting the studio, assuring that "you'll have the game you love shortly!”
As a result of the delay, it would "allow us to get Crysis Remastered up to the PC- and console-breaking standards that you've come to expect from Crysis games."
Crytek further addressed the recent leak and said: "You might be aware of the leak yesterday, and we want you to know: we've seen all the reactions - the good and the bad - and we're listening. We're still working on a number of things in-game, as well as the storefront."
