EA is waiting for Crytek to comment on a report that Crysis 2 is set to skip EA’s Online Pass program when it releases near the end of the month.
Gamertag Radio claims that a Crytek developer confirmed the shooter would not include the system, saying that Crytek chose instead not to be a “testbed”: the system was offered to the developer early on in its development.
The site also claims that the German developer wasn’t looking “to put a wall up to keep people away from the multiplayer.”
EA has included the Online Pass system in all of its titles, including fellow EA Partners title Bulletstorm from Epic-owned People Can Fly.
EA hasn’t commented on the matter yet, but has told VG247 that it’s waiting for an official comment from Crytek.
Online Pass is a system EA uses to make buyers of secondhand games pay an extra fee for online services.
