Posted November 01, 2018 09:07:00 The latest entry in the Crysis series has been delayed from its planned October 30 launch date.
Microsoft’s Xbox team announced today that the game’s launch date has been pushed back due to the ongoing “developing issues” of Crysis 2, which has been “inconsistent” in some cases.
The company’s Crytek studio has also announced that it will no longer be working on Crysis titles for Microsoft’s console.
We’ve been waiting for years for the Crytek-developed Crysis title to be released for Xbox One.
In a blog post today, Crytek’s founder said that he and his team have been working on a “big game” that would “absolutely” be coming to the Xbox One, but that the “game is still not ready.”
While Crytek is aware that some customers may be disappointed by the delay, it feels the timing of the game announcement has been just right.
“It’s a really good moment for everyone at Crytek, and it’s a moment that we’re very happy about,” he wrote.
Crytek also pointed out that Microsoft has “been working with us to make the game as close to ready as possible” for the Xbox platform.
“We are working hard on the game right now, and we’ll share more information on the future once we have it,” the post read.
Microsoft has already launched a number of games with Crysis-inspired graphics, including the CryEngine-powered Wolfenstein: The New Order.
“Crysis 2’s launch will also be delayed to November 30, so we’ll have a chance to bring it to Xbox One first,” the studio added.
Crysis is an action-adventure game that puts players in the role of an ex-special forces soldier who is deployed to Antarctica.
You play as Jacob Banks, a former SAS sniper and former member of a Special Forces team.
The game focuses on Jacob’s mission to capture an enemy soldier and return him to the S.S. Icebreaker, a Soviet icebreaker.
The first Crysis game was released on May 17, 2010, on PC, Mac, and Linux.
