Crysis Remastered was delayed due to footage of the game being leaked online a while back.
Now it's set for a public release on major platforms with the Switch receiving a watered-down version back in July.
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.

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 according 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.
