    Two days ago, Crytek published information that it will no longer patch Crysis for "a good reason". Apparantly the good reason is now believed to be called Crysis Warhead, the second game in the Crysis trilogy. If you try to visit Crytek's home page, a teaser image of Crysis Warhead will appear before the actual page, dropping a hint at what's imminent. No other details, such as platforms or a release date, have been unveiled. It's only an image at the moment, but more information will follow sooner or later.

    That's cool, unexpected, at least to me. I wonder (and hope) if it will be natively dx10 this time round.

    It better run the same or BETTER than the original Crysis. I'm not upgrading my system AGAIN for another Crytek game.

    This is completely unexpected for me considering i never played the first one. Even more surprising is that its a trilogy.

    All i gotta say is it better be a lot more optimized than the first one.

    And that it runs great!

    Why the hell did you post a reply? "I never played it, but I'm so surprised! I hope it runs better than its predecessor (that I never played)."

    And everyone knew it was a trilogy. Crysis came out late summer last year. Only makes sense that the next installment comes out around a year later.

    I hope it's longer.

    Let's hope they improve the engine, and when the last chapter of the trilogy is released, they have a YET BETTER engine that will run *all* episodes. On optimised engine, select the chapter you want to play from the main menu, and "go". Even better if the chapters were properly integrated for a smooth storyline.

    Or is this evolution only a "string and bandaid" patch to a bugged engine, that gets erstatz repairs, but is not properly fixed and improved.

    Anyway, the news is interesting. Basically, they have taken the "debugging" team from Crysis and moved them over to the Warhead development team... why? Because it is riddled with bugs. And they cant launch until the obvious ones are repaired. :rolleyes:

    Oh my goodness, this made my day!:D....I'm excited:p.

    This will be using the Cryengine2 the same as Crysis, so it will run the same, or better, and look just as good....or better:)

    Edit: Wow....look at the amount of people viewing this thread:p

    Like the Half-Life Episodes... no, wait...

    Hope they have some nice plot coming, don't care about new fancy graphics. The cliffhanger did his job quite well :( I wanna return to the island and kick some alien ass.

    Why the hell did you bother replying to me if what you had to offer is just as worthless as what I did?

    Obviously everyone didnt know it was a trilogy as from the way i see it, fall into the everyone category and therefore didnt know about it. Had I known about it, then id be inclined to agree with the second part of your sentence. And from the post above me, HL didnt come out a year later either. Not even Halo. Assassin's Creed will probably take a few years too. And the game isnt even made yet. They just announced that it will be in the works.

    Why the hell did you post a reply? "I hope it's longer." What FPS have you seen that last longer than 7-10hrs?

    Edit: For the record, I did play it. Ran like shit, uninstalled it. Good enough reason for you to post my $0.02?

    You should read past the first line of my post.

    You really think they haven't started developing the game? What do you think they've been doing for a year (and after Crysis went gold)?

    Oh, you did read past the first line of my post. Too bad I didn't skip the first line of yours. Thank you for admitting your post was useless though.

    It's been awhile, but FEAR and Doom III come to mind.

    For the record:
    Guess that makes you a liar. And Crysis runs great for me.

    The reason why i stated i never played the first one is because i never really got that far into the game. Thus, not really playing the game cause its too damn buggy.

    Last I checked, I beat all the FEAR games in under 10 hrs.

    I thought it ran rather well at 1680 x 1050 all high 30 fps on a 8800 GT no AA. I think that because no one has the specs to run it all very high you say it is buggy and unoptimised but to the contrary nVidia would have done their usual and co-developed the engine with crytek.
