Crysis Remastered is Confirmed

We have previously reported on the possibility of release of the new Crysis game in the form of a remaster of an older game, meaning that developers from EA and Crytek took an exiting game and updated its engine to support a few of the modern and graphics accessories like ray tracing and 4K textures. However, it seems that that report wasn't just a rumor and Crytek/EA collaboration is indeed reading a new Crysis Remastered game. The official Crysis website was showing a picture of the remastered game along with platforms it will be supported on. When going to a Cookie Policy part of the website, one could easily see a part of the website meant to showcase the Crysis Remastered game. It was taken down just a few moments ago, however, thanks to the Twitter user Metalfy (@Metalfy4) there is a video showing how easy it was to get to the website.

Showcasing the game, the website was showing that the game is going to be supported on a number of platforms like the regular PC, PS4, Xbox One, and perhaps the most interesting one - the Nintendo Switch. One person on r/Crysis found the following quote on the website: "From the makers of Far Cry, Hunt: Showdown and CRYENGINE, Crysis offers the 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." Seeing this, it will be interesting to see how the Crytek plans to pull off the Nintendo Switch port, being that it has relatively weak hardware. Nonetheless, question remains which version of Crysis game will be remastered and when the game will actually launch.

Well unless this is going to bring hardware to its knees in 2020 as it did in 2007, which obvioulsy it won't, I really don't see the point in it apart from re-coding it to now make use of modern CPU cores, in a far more efficient way.

..My 5Ghz 9900K & 2080 PC is crazily CPU bound in later levels, crashing from a smooth 60 in earlier levels down to the low-mid 30's, so i suppose it would be nice to get a locked 60fps through the whole game...

If this uses the same "Ray Tracing" as the Neon Noir benchmark then a Vega 56 got ~30fps @ 1080p then 4K might require a 100+CU RDNA2 GPU.

Wonder if there will be an MP component? Bringing this to consoles could be tough if it only is SP, no?

There is no way, no way whatsoever, this won't be a downgrade from vanilla PC version circa 2007. Current iteration of consoles are Jaguar based, we are talking AM1 platform Semprons, highly specialized Semprons sure, but still little power sipping and IPC deficient Semprons. Your ancient Crysis-1 era quad core Q6600 will run circles around this platform. The previous PS3/X360 ports were a laughing stock, this will be a slightly visually improved laughing stock.

Give it Vulkan API while they are at it. Like to see this on the Metro Series too.

I hope they'll create a standalone PC version that puts an RTX Titan to its knees.

QUESTION.

Out of all the Crysis series, which one was the most demanding.

kinda unneeded ... as the serie (no not what followed with Far Cry 2 ) is still worthy of modern graphics ...

well ... at last they didn't decide to remaster Crysis 2 or 3 ...

hum ... i am losing interest with remastering these days ... (remake are another matter ... quite pleased with how FF VII turned, which quite well aligned it with the movies and Crisis Core game ... )

The one that wasn't made for consoles from the start, aka Crysis 1.

Borrowing a page from good old Disney:

Why innovate when you can rake in cash with shameless “remaster”?

See the reception of Half Life Alyx versus garbage like this explains quite a lot why these companies are thriving on remaster—— some gamers won’t even try new things but rather stuck in their own loop

Never played ANY of the original Crysis - will definitely pick up this remastered version - all brand new to me and play it for the very first time. :)

Still haven't finished original Half Life or Black Mesa from last Christmas. Still playing in Surface Tension, I'm in the super loot room with all the goodies. lol
