Crysis Remastered is still releasing on the Nintendo Switch this month. 

Last month, Crysis Remastered was delayed for most consoles after the game got a negative reaction from a leaked trailer. Now, it has been announced on Twitter that Crysis Remastered is still coming out on the Nintendo Switch this month. There was no word on when we can expect the game to release on other platforms. 

"Crysis fans, you may have seen our last update about the Crysis Remastered release, and we have good news for you: we can confirm that Crysis will still be coming to Nintendo Switch on July 23rd!" stated the tweet.  

Crysis Remastered was revealed this past April. This version of the classic will feature updated graphics and optimizations for current-gen platforms. The remaster will focus on the original's single-player campaigns and will have high-quality textures, improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, motion blur, and more.  

"We are excited to be working on the Crysis franchise again, and to bring all the Crysis fans a remaster worthy of their passion for the game," stated Crytek CEO Avni Yerli. "It's an exciting opportunity to be able to bring Crysis back to PCs and current consoles - even Nintendo Switch! - so that a whole new generation of players can experience the thrill of a battle in the Nanosuit." 

In Crysis, a simple rescue mission ends up landing the player into a battleground of a new war as alien invaders drop down on the North Korean island chain. Players are armed with an advanced Nanosuit that grants them a wealth of abilities, including speed, strength, armor, and cloaking. These powers, along with a arsenal of weaponry, give players the opportunity to come up with creative solutions for every situation. 

Crysis Remastered will release for the Nintendo Switch on July 23rd. There is no word on the PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One versions of the game.
