Crytek teases potential Crysis remaster

Crytek has officially release CryEngine version 5.6, which brings with it over 1,000 changes, many of which are used in Crytek's latest game Hunt: Showdown, which recently released outside of Steam Early Access. 

Within Crytek's Cryenigie 5.6 "Tech Trailer", the company has started to tease what appears to be a new project, one which is sure to ignite a fire within PC gaming circles. Yes, we are talking about a potential Crysis remaster. 

Even today, you will still hear some PC gamers ask "Can it run Crysis?", and now it appears that this question will soon return to the forefront. Just imagine Crysis, complete with modern rendering techniques and some much-needed multi-threading support. Starting at 2:17 in the trailer below, a portal opens to a scene with Crysis-like forest, a familiar-looking beat and the sounds of Crysis' main theme. 

While this is far from an official reveal for Crysis remastered, this trailer is a clear sign that Crytek is considering the project. Remasters are all the rage these days, and as far as PC gaming is concerned, Crysis is one of the biggest names there is.

The CryEngine and Unreal Engines are the ones I prefer to see games made in.

Apparently the CryEngine is quite a pain to use, but games look so good when it's used.

I hope they remaster it.Quote

I'd buy it day one!!! I'd probably even pre-order it. When I first got back into PC gaming around 2008, it was because I wanted to play Crysis. The music and sound effects still make me all nostalgic. The atmosphere in that game is still one of the best ever.

I will always look back on the countless hours I spent using the Crysis benchmark with my trusty 9600GT and then my 4850 overclocked to their max trying to get Very High to run at 40 fps with the utmost fondness lol...Quote
