MyCrysis has news to expect a playable multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 on January 25, but word is this will be an Xbox exclusive. This press release has further details, and since there's no explanation for skipping PC and PS3 with the demo, we've contacted Crytek asking about this, but haven't yet received a reply (it's already evening in Germany, so it's entirely possible they're gone for the day). Last April when Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli expressed doubts that there would be a demo for their shooter sequel at all, he cited economics as a reason we might see fewer demos in the future, saying: "I think that we’ll see more and more games not carrying a demo in the future, because it becomes prohibitively expensive." There's also an answer in The Crysis 2 Multiplayer Tech Test FAQ that may apply to the demo, where they say: "CryEngine 3 allows us to develop Crysis 2 similarly on all three of our platforms – PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. While we’re marching ahead quickly on all three platforms, at this time we’re just testing the Xbox 360 game architecture." There's also a multiplayer trailer of which they say: "Watch as 2 teams of 6 go head-to-head with the strength, agility, and stealth that only a Nanosuit can offer." The site is being hammered so hard that the trailer doesn't really stream, so we've taken the liberty of posting a copy to the YouTube. The embedded version follows.
