Crysis Remastered Accidentally Revealed

A slip-up on the Crysis Website unintentionally confirms that Crysis Remastered is indeed the meaning behind recent hints that something like this was in the works. This was accidentally revealed via the metadata on their cookie policy page. While this has now been removed from the site, this tweet (thanks ResetEra) immortalizes it, revealing the remake will come to PC and consoles, including Switch. Here's word:
From the makers of Far Cry, Hunt: Showdown and CRYENGINE, Crysis offers first person shooter fans the best-looking, evolved, and innovative gameplay, enabling players to adapt in real time to survive. Crysis Remastered brings new graphic features, high-quality textures, and the CRYENGINE's native hardware- and API-agnostic ray tracing solution for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and – for the very first time – Nintendo Switch.

I mean, remasters fall into 3 categories.

1 is fan service. Fans love something that's become harder to access, so remaster.

2 is a proof of technology. Creating an entirely new game from scratch is difficult and time consuming. Remastering something onto new technology is somewhat easier and quicker. It can be a good way to test something out, get your staff up to speed, and learn. It's also true when the tech side of a project becomes ready sooner than the content side can move, so rather than have idle staff, you put them into doing a remaster (super rare, but happens)

3 cash grab


Most are probably something of all of the above, or at least, they're hopeful for #1 but doing it for #2 and #3. For Crytek, if they're doing this internally, it's definitely #3 and part of the others. They have done major layoffs, so they don't have as many people to ideate. They also need cash badly. And they hope people are craving more Crysis.
