Crysis 2 Gets an Official New Release Date

Earlier this month we learned that Crysis 2 was getting delayed from the holiday sesason of this year into early next year.

Those who have shiny new systems built so that they can answer "the question" will have to wait a few months into 2011 to find out.

A tweet from the official Crysis Twitter stream reads:

Crysis 2's new release date: March 22nd, 2011 in North America and March 25th, 2011 in Europe

Along with that message is the first screenshot from the multiplayer mode, which looks like this:

    Only to be pushed back to June 14.

    Damn /cry :( That is a long time....

    :( :( :(

    can't wait for this game. also by that time, we will probably be seeing some new hardware components as well.
  • Looks OK, but it all depends on whether they will tie the second game's story into the first one (with characters, etc.) or not. If not, it will be a major disappointment.

    Pretty obvious that the storyline will continue. I heard we get to play as Prophet this time, and even if not, I suspect at some point his fate will be revealed on the island.

    Also can't Wait.

    And yes my computer can play Crysis (and probably 2)

    Still waiting for more high-res PC shots. I know they said they're only posting console shots until after summer, but I'm impatient. :P

    Still hoping for a really amazing tie in from the first game. I was so excited for the second game after that cliffhanger and now they're running off someplace else. :/

    Guess that gives me plenty of time to build my quad-SLI dodeca-core behemoth
  • razercultmember1
    whew time enough to get me 3 more 5870s and a six core !_!
  • liquidsnake718
    OK, so I guess then I will upgrade next year then and sell off my unopened core i7920 and just wait for a better i7. Still thinking about getting a new mb and corssfiring my 5850 or by next year just get a new GPU by that time its released, Im sure the game will be the next version of DX11, mYBE dx11.2 which will probably be helpful for 3d....
