A couple of days ago, we informed you about some leaked Crytek documents that hit the Internet. According to those documents, Crytek had plans for Crysis Battle Royale, Crysis VR, a new Ryse game, as well as a new Robinson game. And yesterday, it was revealed that Crytek plans to remaster both Crysis 2 and Crysis 3.
According to the leaked documents, Crytek was originally planning to release Crysis Remastered on February 20th. However, and as you all know, this game finally came out in September 2020 (though Crytek was planning to release it in July). So yeah, don’t pay attention to these leaked release dates.
Crysis 1 Remaster – 2/20
Crysis 2 Remaster – 8/20
Crysis 3 Remaster – 2/21
Crysis Collection – 5/21

What’s interesting, though, is the time gap between these remasters. Crytek was planning to release Crysis 2 Remastered six months after the release of the first remaster. As such, we may see Crysis 2 Remastered and Crysis 3 Remastered in 2021.
Furthermore, it appears that Crysis Warhead will not receive any “remaster” treatment. Of course this shouldn’t surprise us as Crysis Remastered is based on the PS3/X360 version of Crysis.
Additionally, these remasters of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 fall in line with Tim Willits’ statement. In a deleted tweet, Tim Willits claimed that the remaster would have multiple single-player campaigns. We originally thought that Willits was referring to Crysis and Crysis Warhead. Instead, it appears that Crytek will remaster both Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, and then include every remaster in one collection.
Do note that these remasters will only have the single-player campaign modes of these games. There won’t be any multiplayer mode in either Crysis 2 Remastered or Crysis 3 Remastered. My guess is that Crysis Next (aka Crysis Battle Royale) will fill that “multiplayer” gap.
Stay tuned for more!
