Crytek is reportedly working on remastering one of its best titles, Crysis. The game, aptly titled Crysis Remastered, was revealed via the official website and for the first time, the game is also heading for the Nintendo Switch.
Rumours of the remastered title’s existence were teased over the course of the past several weeks, but a posting by Twitter user lashman (@RobotBrush) of the Crytek’s official page for the game confirmed the game’s existence.
According to his post, Crysis Remastered will feature more up-to-date higher quality textures and CRYENGINE’s native hardware and “API-agnostic” ray-tracing solutions. For PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.

Crysis was released back in 2007, and garnered fanfare and critical acclaim, primarily for its stunning and groundbreaking visuals and graphics. Unfortunately, that visual fidelity also came with a high asking price, punishing even the fastest and most powerful gaming hardware at the time. So much so that it spawned the still ongoing and mostly applicable “But can it run Crysis?” meme.
For that matter, the game still makes even the most powerful modern-day PC cry, despite it being 13 years old.
At the time of writing, there has been no further announcements by Crytek. However, it’s likely that an official announcement will be made soon.
