Crysis 2 delayed into next year

Tuesday, 3rd August 2010 21:57 GMT By Johnny Cullen


EA’s just confirmed that Crysis 2 has been pushed into Q4 FY2011.

The push is mentioned in the company’s recently released financials.

Originally, the Crytek super-shooter was due for a release this holiday season, and in fact, had its release brought forward to autumn just before E3.

The game’s multiplayer is due to be shown in two weeks at gamescom at Crytek’s home turf in Cologne.

It’ll released on PS3, 360 and PC, and will also support 3D.

    Ah damn, ah well. There are plenty of shooters for the end of this year anyway, so its not a biggie really in my book.

    I thought that would be Q4 2010

    As in financial year 2010, which extends into ’11.

    Those saying Q4 is until the end of March, yes it is, but March 2012. The post says FY2011, which is presumably a mistake.

    No, it’s their 2011 financial year, which spans April 2010 to March 2011 (inclusive).

    The first game was shite. The second game looked like more mediocre nonsense.

    Very elegant reply there, your parents must be real proud of you…

    Num 1 was a tech demo…Acording to some of the press they have focused more on creating an over all better ‘game’ this time around…although I am sure that it will still be graphically impressive.
    @19, elegant enough? :P

    If this releases anywhere near Killzone 3, I won’t be buying it until it hits the discount bin. Killzone 3 is my most anticipated game of early 2011. Uncharted 3 for the latter part (I know)…Oh and I’m liking how Bulletstorm’s coming along. Oh and then there’s Infamous 2: will def get this one as well. Damn, I sure hope Crytek figures out a non obtrusive release date…

    Yes and the Lincoln Memorial is a front for the government’s drug ring.

    Another spring scrum…

    So what are the big shooters coming out for Christmas now. There’s Halo: Reach…

    Unlikely, but I’d love it if Resistance 3 was announced for a December this year.

    Looks like we’re due another ‘extended Christmas period’ next year. :-)

    A joint proper Halo and CoD xmas is pretty intense after all

    Disappointed but saves me from having to choose how to spend money this fall and winter…Since I am not a QujiggleNaire, I have to pick and choose how to spend my $65.00 Bill.

    Just mentioned in the other thread, no doubt they want to focus on Medal of Honor this christmas.

    I am very disappointed. Crysis2 was my most anticipated game of this year.
    First one was the best shooter ever I played.

    Crysis 2 vs KZ3….Bring it! PS3 owners get twice the love :)

    KZ3 isn’t that close, is it? Or did I miss a memo?

    Oh its on. Crytek has been running their mouths for months and now is the time to truly see if a 3rd party dev can make a 3rd party game look better than a SONY 1st party game while still developing that game also for the 360.

    Three things will either happen:

    1. KZ3 will wipe the floor with Crysis 2 regardless anyway


    2. The Crytek engine will make a 360 game exceed the graphics of a SONY 1st party game.


    3. Crysis 2 will match the graphical quality of KZ3 but the 360 ver will be greatly inferior.

    Damn I only wish RAGE was releasing at the same time so we could add that in here too. :D My money is on KZ3 and it having the better 3D tech also. I’ll be taking bets in the forum. All proceeds go to M$ for better tech in the NEXTBOX :P

    What will you do if it’s:
    4) The Crytek engine will make a 360 game exceed the graphics of a SONY 1st party game and the 360 version looks better than the PS3 version?

    @30 – probly and unfortunately it looks like moh is going to sell quite well; the only other fps that will beat it is reach and black ops =/

    hopefully kz3 and crysis 2 will have pre-launch demos

    #40 4 years ago
  41. theevilaires

    Well that kind of goes without saying Blerk. I’m sure if a 360 title looks better than KZ3 it would still look better than any other PS3 game especially 3rd party ones seeing as how its even easy to develop for…

    ….but don’t hold your breathe. Even looking at the early screens of Gears3 should give you a glimpse into the future of XBOX 360 graphics from now on.
