The German developer almost went under a few years back, but thanks to the success of Hunt: Showdown they’re returned and now so too has Crysis… and its sequels.
The Crysis Remastered Trilogy will feature all three games, but only their single-player components. It’ll be handled by World War Z developer Saber Interactive, with a release date of sometime this autumn.
The compilation will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
That’s quite a span of systems, in terms of raw horsepower, but the two sequels were made with the Xbox 360 in mind. Although the first game, which was primarily a PC title, worked out surprisingly well on Switch.
The next gen versions will apparently play ‘even smoother’ than the last gen ones but there’s no further details at the moment, which is a little surprising given how obsessed with technology and performance Crytek tend to be.
There doesn’t seem to be any discount if you’ve already bought Crysis Remastered but the sequels will be available separately, if you want to avoid buying something you’ve already got.
Crysis 2 was set in New York as it was being invaded by aliens, while Crysis 3 involved the Big Apple being turned into a rainforest… for reasons.
The natural assumption is that all this is leading up to a Crysis 4 announcement but so far Crytek hasn’t mentioned the possibility. Although that may depend on how well these additional remasters go down with gamers.
