Crytek: No Crysis 2 This Year

A post over on Crytek's official modding forum reveals that the company does not anticipate a release of Crysis 2 this year, reporting that Crytek currently has no official ship date schedule despite the game's estimated October 30 release. Serving as the first title built upon Crytek's new CryEngine 3 (and the developer's first console game), the game will appear on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 when it eventually hits retail shelves.

“The development of Crysis 2 marks a major stepping stone for our studio,” said Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli back in June. “This is not only the next game in the Crysis franchise, it’s the first title we are developing for consoles and the first title being built on CryEngine 3. We are excited to have the support of EA Partners again as we work together to make the launch of Crysis 2 a huge event.”

Expect additional details to become available towards the end of the year.

    Well, Crysis Warhead was a step "back" from Crysis, just "optimizing" (actually toning down) the original graphics from Crysis.
