The Crysis games are some of the most significant and influential shooters of the modern era. Infamous for their technical prowess, these games served as the benchmark for so many high end PCs in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Now, the series is being thrust back into the spotlight with Crysis Remastered Trilogy. After a delay last year, Crytek has announced that Crysis Remastered Trilogy will be released this fall.

Crytek made the announcement in an update posted to its official website. Though there still isn’t a concrete release date, we now know that Crysis Remastered Trilogy will arrive sometime in the fall of 2021. The original Crysis Remastered was originally going to launch in July of last year, but underwent some massive delays as Crytek continued to work on the game.

“Crysis Remastered Trilogy will [allow] players not familiar with the franchise to be able to play through the whole storyline from the very beginning with this all-in-one bundle.” the developer said in its statement. The remaster of the original Crysis is available now on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Switch. The remasters of 2 and 3 will be available separately later this year. All three games in the Crysis Remastered Trilogy have graphical enhancements on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

"We're excited to announce that these iconic Crysis games are returning in one bundle, remastered for a new generation of hardware," said Steffen Halbig, Project Lead. "Each game is enhanced to look and play beautifully on today's platforms, delivering the finest Crysis experience for both newcomers to our classic franchise or players wishing to relive the adventure."

The Crysis Remastered Trilogy will be released this fall for home consoles and PC. To see what we thought of the remaster for the first game, check out our Shacknews impressions.

        How were 2,3? I know I finished the 1st one, but don't think I played any of the other two.

          They are less open world. More like Call of Duty than Far Cry.

          The sequels play nothing like the first game which is unfortunate to say the least. I think I beat the second one back in the day on a friends PS3 but tried playing the third one on gamepass and it was just so bad... it felt very hackneyed.

            That’s unfortunate, cause I had a total blast with the original.

          I thought the second one was awful. I don't understand where it's reviews came from honestly. I really liked Crysis and Crysis: Warhead though.

            I did enjoy Crysis 2. A direct continuation of the plot of the first two games, & the Extras menu was fun, with all the recovered recordings there so you could replay them, and also highly detailed 3D suit models to look at.

          I still find shooting to be very satisfying in these games. Just the right amount of punch recoil and weapon variety. Just played 3rd one on Game Pass. It’s good!

        Is this the same as the remaster of the console port we already got?

          For the first? No reason they'd make another remaster.

          Since they screwed that up it's a heavily discounted pick up for me at some point. Sucks, really enjoyed the original.

            Crysis 1 Remastered is $5 on EGS now, I went ahead and got it, shrug.

        Ya think that's easy money as a dev? Re-release a game you've already made years ago by just making it higher res? Maybe throw in a few new bells and whistles and call it next gen - instant revenue?

          There's nothing wrong with that. Lots of people have never played [Insert Game] or never experienced how it was really meant to be seen or played.

            I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it either... I was just thinking from a business stand point if its like easy money... help fund newer projects as they get more and more expensive to make - a good practice that more devs should do: REMEDY

          Nostalgia is huge right now, I wish more developers were doing this.

          I was a huge Diablo 2 junkie but the fixed resolution finally got to me. It just looked sooooo dated compared to the new girl in town, Titan Quest. Sure the items and skill trees weren't quite the same, but boy it was nice having the terrain fill the screen again.

        Yes, it's excellent (I didn't bother 'donating' for the higher res textures though). It's what I played after refunding that thing they call a remaster of Crysis 1 and it was a much better experience.
