Crytek locks down date for long-awaited PS3, 360, and PC shooter; Europe gets game on March 25.



Crytek's Crysis 2 was originally scheduled to ship during the busy holiday season but was bumped for a "better [release] window and polishing." Today, the developer locked down the game's release date in early 2011. Nanosuits are back in style this March.




According to Crytek's Twitter feed, Crysis 2 will hit shelves March 22, 2011 in North America and three days later on March 25, 2011 in Europe. The new date distances the game from such holiday heavyweights as Call of Duty: Black Ops and Halo: Reach, and places it just before the April 2011 launch of Gears of War 3.

Crysis 2 sees players fend off an alien threat once again, aided by a nanosuit that grants the user superhuman abilities ranging from speed boosts to active camouflage. The sequel features two major distinctions from its predecessor. The original Crysis featured lush tropical environments but Crysis 2 takes place in the urban jungle of New York City. Additionally, the sequel is going multiplatform and will release on Xbox 360, PlayStation, and will return to PC.

It's a good thing they bumped it to March 2011, less competition for that hard earn money of gamers.

Personally, I think a few devs would do well to bump games back a little. Fill in some of the drought seasons and give themselves plenty of time for polishing :T

Well if that's the case GT5 should be polished to a mirror finish by now.:bigsmile: That's one of my pet peeves, when they decide to release good titles all at the same time either in the summer or around Christmas.:rant:
