We have learned this morning that Crytek has delayed the single player demo for Crysis
until October 26th.
Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, said that “we are taking some extra time to make sure that you have an amazing experience but also we did not want to risk the release date of Crysis at this stage. To get the game into your hands by November 16th, we had to make this call.”
To compensate for the delay though, Yerli said that the demo will come complete with the CryEngine 2 Sandbox game editor. This, Yerli says, will give the community “the opportunity to get familiar with the vast amount of tools they will have at their disposal four weeks before we ship, something we have always wanted to do.”
This will no doubt upset the many PC gamers eagerly awaiting the demo’s release, which was originally scheduled for tomorrow – the same day that Halo 3
is released. Frankly though, it’s completely understandable if it means keeping the original launch plan alive.
