Crytek has delayed its Crysis remaster following a negative reaction to leaked assets this week.
According to retail listings, the shooter was set for release later this month. However, in a statement published on Wednesday co-developer Crytek confirmed it had delayed Crysis for further polish.
“Your passion for the Crysis franchise deserves and undeniably high-quality game, and we are committed to delivering just that,” the company wrote in a statement.
“To ensure that we meet that commitment, we will need to delay the launch date (all platforms) and trailer premiere by a few weeks.”
It added: “You might be aware of the leak yesterday, and we want you to know: we’ve seen all the reactions – the good and the bad – and we’re listening.”
“We hope you understand what we’re up to – and that you stay with us while we take the time to make a few more improvements,” it said.
According to Crytek, Crysis Remastered will feature high-quality textures and improved art assets, including an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, new light settings, motion blur and more.
On Thursday Crytek released the first screenshots of the Nintendo Switch version, which you can see below:
