They did for the original Crysis but then they dropped support for it - the Steam version is 32bit only. It wasn't handled well. Crysis Warhead has a 64bit executable.

It was certainly ahead of its time but the gameplay was a real disappointment, especially after the original Far Cry. I think Warhead improved things a lot and they tweaked the engine to improve performance and visuals too. The trouble is the engine was very poorly optimised and even hardware released years later suffers noticeably from framerate drops, whereas Far Cry 2 performed great and has scaled well to future hardware.
