Crytek has pulled the bigger bait and switch on Crysis fans, after teasing that Crysis Remastered was right around the corner -- and then going Maximum Stealth, and pulling the release.

It all happened because the gaming and tech media as well as gamers themselves, were not happy with what was shown off in the early leaked footage of Crysis Remastered. The developer pulled the release within an hour of revealing it (not a good move by Crytek) yet... the Nintendo Switch version is still launching on July 23.

The official Crysis Twitter account tweeted out: "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! Watch this space for further updates".

Maximum WTF.

We were expecting Crysis Remastered to launch on all platforms (PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch) on July 23, 2020 -- but it was pushed back with no ETA. Now, out of nowhere... Crytek announce the Nintendo Switch version of Crysis Remastered is still dropping on July 23.
