Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, has updated the community on the current status of the hotly anticipated PC game.
"There has been a lot of recent talk about Crysis' ship date. I wanted to send out a message to all those who are interested and set the record straight. The game will ship a little later than planned. I want to assure everyone that Crytek are working as hard as we possibly can to deliver this game to our fans and consumers in the earliest timeframe that meets our high quality threshold," said the CEO. "Taking the extra time in the studio is the right decision because it helps us be sure that we can bring you the experience you expect from this new game."
Being published by EA, Crysis is the next series from the developer behind Far Cry, a franchise now owned by Ubisoft. Noticed at E3 for incredible visuals, gamers have wondered if their current system will have any chance running the DirectX 10 game in full detail.
"We are focussing our efforts right now on getting the best possible experience for the widest variety of PC configs, starting from entry-level PC's up to the hard-core game rigs," said Yerli. "Multiplayer is also an area of big focus for us right now, and we listened very hard to our fans. This includes the post-launch modding and community plans. Crysis' core single player is improving all the time - the progress I am seeing from the team right now here in Frankfurt is just staggering."
