Will release sometime this fall. No word on whether this will still be an Epic exclusive yet, or if multiplayer will be supported.
The first game is supposed to run pretty well after all the patches. Hopefully they take what they learned with that release and apply it to the other two games without needing to wait.I hope they optimise the performance in the second and third game because the 1st game is very poorly optimised, just like the original and so far I wasn't impressed by it.
Even the original release of Crysis 2 ran better than the first game.
I liked the actual games of 2 and 3 more than the first one, even if they dropped a lot of the graphical zaniness of the first game. Not sure I'm in a hurry to replay them, though. The zany graphics and semi-open world added a little bit of replay to the first game. At least the first half of it. The 2nd and 3rd games were linear shooters. That's is a one-and-done for me, even if it's a good game.
I disagree. I had the most fun I've ever had in the first game when I did another playthrough a few months ago. I enjoyed Warhead, but I honestly don't think the pacing was as good.I was never able to complete Crysis 3. When it came out, or even if I installed it now on my 100% different system build. I always get a crash when you first enter the forested area within the dome, it crashes right at the checkpoint right before, I assume, you encounter the new alien enemy hunters. I really liked what I saw of Crysis 3 otherwise..
Crysis 1 is pretty awful to play now, honestly. It hasn't held up. I don't even remember Crysis 2 that much, I remember not liking it. I did think Warhead was pretty decent, and holds up better.
Wasn't there a report a couple years back that said their studio was in the red and couldn't pay staff? I think their fate was sealed a decade ago when they tried to make a move into the console market, rather than remain focused on the high end PC platform which their reputation and the reputation of their engine was built upon. Sure the high end PC market was niche but the licenses/royalties from other devs using their engine would have probably been more than enough to keep them afloat.Crytek is fully committed to cashgrabs now
