Crysis Remastered was delayed due to footage of the game being leaked online a while back.
The iconic first-person shooter appeared after the official Twitter account resurfaced out of the blue.
Gamers nowadays are no stranger to remasters as of late, with Halo leading the charge and many others following suit.
Crysis 2007 was initially well-received but that hype quickly faded away with the leaked footage, as fans were not happy with how the game was panning out.
Will the developers be able to turn this project around? Here's all we know thus far!
This Month? - 11th July
According to a report by Eurogamer, Crytek has claimed the game is still releasing sometime this month for the Nintendo Switch.
The initial report was later confirmed by Crysis themselves, as they have announced that it will be releasing on July 23rd, 2020!

Crysis Twitter Comes Back To Life - 13th April
Mysteriously the Crysis Twitter has come back to life, potentially hitting at a new title in the works.
The game was leaked to be released on the 23rd of July, but due to negative feedback on the game's state, it is being pushed back by a few weeks.
Currently, there is no release date for Crysis other than a vague 'Summer' window, we expect it to in the next few months as the latest graphic teases the game will launch on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
The 2007 version released in November, when most big title franchises tend to release their new titles - in 2007 Crysis had to compete with Call of Duty 4, Super Mario Galaxy, Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Rock Band and more.
What Is Crysis?
Crysis is a first-person shooter video game series developed by German developer Crytek and published by Electronic Arts.
The series revolves around a military group that possess "nanosuits", which are suits of armor possessing advanced technology, granting the user enhanced strength, speed, defence and cloaking abilities.
The protagonists face off against hostile North Korean soldiers, heavily armed mercenaries and a race of technologically advanced aliens known as the Ceph
The series produced four titles, with three falling under the main series and a standalone spinoff called "Crysis Warhead".
After Helena Rosenthal sends a distress signal saying the North Koreans are invading the seemingly unimportant island on which her team is working, the US government dispatches Raptor Team.
After arriving on the island, however, Raptor Team's ranks are thinned by mysterious flying creatures, eventually leaving only Nomad, Psycho, and Prophet, who is subsequently kidnapped by the organisms later called the Ceph.
We're expecting a sleuth of new features such as game modes, maps, maybe even weapons and cosmetics.
What we do know is that cccording to the official description on the site, Crysis Remastered will have "new graphic features", higher quality textures and "CRYENGINE's native hardware and API-agnostic ray tracing solution."
In the 2007 version, up to 32 players were supported in each multiplayer match.
The multiplayer had two different game modes:
- Instant Action - Deathmatch
- Power Struggle - Teams fighting to destroy the other's headquarters
In Crysis 2, players were upgraded to Team Instant Action (Team Deathmatch) and Crash Site. Crash site required players to defend alien drop pods like control points.
In Crysis 3, Crytek added Capture the Relay, Hunter, Assault, Cell vs Rebel and Developer's Choice. They also added "Maximum" variants to Team Deathmatch and Deathmatch.
You can expect some of these modes to return to the remaster from across the franchise.
The original multiplayer had six maps, including a level editor called Sandbox.
The maps were:
Most weapons in Crysis can be modified with attachments and can be attached to almost every weapon.
They also feature multiple firing modes and different ammo types - it also accounts for already-chambered rouns when a reload occurs.
