After the official Crysis twitter made their first tweet in nearly 4 years, it has been leaked that the Crysis games may indeed be getting remastered. Though Crytek has yet to make any official announcements, the remaster was just leaked by the cookie policy page on the official site, of all places.

For those that may have no idea what Crysis is, it was Crytek’s semi-open jungle shooter, released in 2007. The game was famous for its vast, detailed tropical environments and sandbox combat. Meme’s back then were simpler and would have text reading “Can it run Crysis?” Such as this masterpiece,

Expect to see a new rise of these memes btw.

Before the official page was updated, it confirmed that Crysis Remastered is coming to PC, PlayStation, Xbox and even Nintendo Switch. Outside of updated visuals and higher-resolution textures, the remaster will also make use of Cryengine’s ray tracing API, which works on all hardware regardless of the manufacturer (provided it’s powerful enough).

While the original text has since been removed from the live page, but the meta data still has it. It read,

“Crysis offers first person shooter fans the best-looking, evolved, and innovative gameplay, enabling players to adapt in real time to survive. Crysis Remastered brings new graphic features, high-quality textures, and the Cryengine’s native hardware- and API-agnostic ray tracing solution for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and – for the very first time – Nintendo Switch.”

With both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X capable of hardware-based ray tracing, it’s safe to say that the remaster will end up on next-gen consoles.

However, given that it’s also coming to PS4, Xbox One, and the Switch, it will most likely be a toned-down version. With the cat now out of the bag, expect an official announcement to follow in short order. So, Stay tuned to Gaming Access Weekly with more updates.
