Towards the end of June, a new Crysis Remastered and screenshots leaked ahead of time and the response from fans was less than thrilled. Due to internal concerns and based on feedback, Crysis Remastered has been delayed with a new statement from the studio.
The delay won't be long, only a "few weeks" according to a recent statement. “Your passion for the Crysis franchise deserves an undeniably high-quality game, and we are committed to delivering just that,” the statement below reads. “To ensure that we meet that commitment, we will need to delay the launch date (all platforms) and trailer premiere by a few weeks. Because they already started, pre-orders for Switch will stay open, but pre-orders for all other platforms will be delayed as well.”

The responding comments immediately reflected the negative reception the leak received, which makes the delay a good decision to tidy things up a bit:
The leak trailer was horrible you have crysis mods that look way better. I was hoping the leak trailer was fake but apparently not. Dammit— Love PC tech (@werty2346) July 1, 2020
If the leaked trailer was real, you should scrap the entire game and start working on it hard. No one wants to see better trees and bushes. We want more rich geometry, rich lighting system, rich particle effects. What you've leaked is just HORRIBLE.— Ryan (@sanityenvoy) July 1, 2020
With the delay only being a few weeks, that's not terrible, but hopefully, that's enough time for the team to do what they need to do without putting too much crunch pressure on them. Gamers would rather a delay than a bad launch, so take the time needed and remember to stay hydrated!
As for the game itself, Crysis Remastered is coming out sometime later this Summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
What do you think about the recent leaks and the team's response with a Crysis Remastered delay? Good move on their part, or do you think they should mmmmmblock out the haters? Sound off with your thoughts over on Twitter @PrimaGames, we'd love to hear what you think!
