Can You Play Ray Traced Crysis?
Several different sources have hinted that we might just see a remaster of the original Crysis sometime in the near future, and it might once again crush systems as it did in the past. The first suggestion came from a Crytek video showcasing the evolution of CryEngine over the years, which ended with a short bit of gameplay from the original game with the words “Never Stop Achieving” appearing, as HEXUS spotted.
The second came from an EA investor briefing which mentioned that it is already working on “exciting remasters of the most beloved fan games,” including “two new unannounced titles from third-party developers”. Last are the two tweets you saw above, the first we’ve heard from that account since Dec 13th, 2016.
With CryEngine v5.6 supporting ray tracing, not only would this make the jungles of Crysis much prettier but it could also mean a remake is every bit as graphically demanding as the original slide show was.
There is something brewing at Crytek. It recently celebrated a decade of titles using the CryEngine - and the video presentation ended with scenes from the iconic 2007 original Crysis title and the words "Never stop achieving".
