Crytek: No Crysis 2 This Year

Sorry, no Crysis 2 for you 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.

    I wonder if the PC version will run on DX11? I hope other game Developers make games with Cryengine 3 like a WWII game or modern Combat.

    warhead has better graphics than crysis and runs at the same fps, meaning it IS better optimized. maybe u should play both before commenting.

    Same graphics same engine better FPS, maybe you should play both games before commenting.

    Crysis had amazing graphics and the gameplay had HIGH potential but they got to wrapped up in the graphics to give it a good story better weapons and alot of other things it needed. Hopefully this one will be better.

    Wow a sequel to a mediocre shooter. Is it the norm lately, cause Bungie has been doing that alot too?

    ummm. to be clear, i find it very hard to believe that it will be able to look better than - or even as good as - crysis AND run on the consoles. my 8800gt struggles with it, and it has 5 to 10 TIMES the fill rate of the console gfx cards, i mean im fairly confident there are ALOT of optimizations that can be made to the original crysis tech, but i still think it will be a bit much.

    i'm actually very interested to see how this all works out. will the successors to the most technically advanced/demanding PC game (EVARRR!!) turn out to be some crappy console port?

    I'm not too worried, give them the time they need to make this game great.

    DX11 is meant to work better and more effectivly with the PC hardware over DX10. So I for one WANT to see it in DX11 instead of 10!
