With the overall consensus being that the gameplay trailer for Crysis Remastered wasn't quite at the level Crysis should be -- that is a game that will melt any and all graphics hardware that attempts to run it. Ahead of it's official debut, the gameplay trailer for Crytek's re-imagining of the original leaked and was met with mostly negative feedback.

Here it is (with footage captured from the PC version).

The problem? Apparently it doesn't look like much of a an upgrade, and with a few mods the PC version from back-in-the-day looks a lot better. Though it's worth noting, that for a 2007 game - the year of the very first The Witcher and BioShock - this still looks good. But, this leak came after Crytek hyped its remaster efforts by teasing the inclusion of modern effects like "volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections". The hype was real so the trailer that was set to debut last night was postponed, alongside the release of the game.

“Your passion for the Crysis franchise deserves an undeniably high-quality game,” Crytek said in a statement on Twitter. “And we are committed to delivering just that. To ensure that we meet that commitment, we will need to delay the launch date (all platforms) and trailer premiere by a few weeks.”

Here's the word in full.

With the gist being that the team will spend a few extra weeks to polish the game and push the visuals to the "PC and console breaking standard" that fans are used to. Of course, one of the reasons Crysis doesn't run all that great on modern hardware comes down to some of the obsolete tech it uses (the original first hit the scene in 2007) - so the game is due for an overhaul. That said, it's hard to see how - in the space of a few weeks - the game will go from "yeah, that looks like Crysis" to "ooh, Crysis".

Crysis Remastered is still headed to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
