Crysis Remastered release date and trailer leaked out on June 30, 2020, and it took only one day for the developers to announce a release delay as they want to iron things out.

Crysis Remastered's initial release date was supposed to be July 23, 2020, according to the leak found on Microsoft's store page but that is no longer valid. According to Crytek, the team saw both the positive and negative feedback which is why they decided it would be best if they didn't rush the game out. 

Therefore, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC pre-orders will not kick off just yet, hinting that the delay is a significant one, despite Crytek not specifically noting it is. In fact, the exact wording used was that the fans "will have the game [they] love shortly".

On the flip side, Nintendo Switch pre-orders will keep running because they had already started by the time the decision was made. Still, there is no release date on Nintendo's shop either so it can only be speculated when the new release will happen.

Crytek also noted that they will use the extra time to bring Crysis up to "PC and console-breaking standard" that the fans have come to expect from the game. It remains to be seen whether the changes will be significant from the trailer that leaked.

At the end of the letter that addressed the audience, Crytek stated that they will keep the fans up to speed with their work. Waiting is now all that remains.
