Two months after a console version of Crysis was spotted in a ratings database, Crytek has announced a "remastered" version of the original Crysis for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this October. Though Crysis 2 hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as well, the 2007 original was only ever released on PC.
"For many years, people were asking, can you do Crysis 1 on consoles?" CEO Cervat Yerli told GameTrailers TV. "And we have been secretly working on that for a while."
The announcement trailer notes that the console edition of Crysis has been "remastered with all new lighting" as well as new effects and Nanosuit controls. Like Crysis 2, the console version will offer full stereoscopic 3D support. One speculates that it'll be built upon the Crysis 2-powering CryEngine 3, given all the work that went into optimizing that for consoles.
Crysis 2 will be available on XBLA and PSN for 1600 Microsoft Points/$19.99.
"Can It Run Crysis?"
Gamers that played Crysis 2 on the PS3 or Xbox 360 unlocked the tongue-in-cheek achievement after running through the tutorial. But, while the consoles could run the CryEngine 3-powered sequel, many gamers wondered if it would be able to play the benchmark of benchmarks: the original Crysis.
It appears the original game (pictured above) may be coming to the consoles. Once again, the Korean ratings board has leaked a listing referring to an Xbox 360 version of the game. The listing, filed today, shows Electronic Arts as the publisher. The ESRB listing of the original game has also been updated to reflect both a PS3 and Xbox 360 release.
Earlier this week, a PS3 listing for Limbo was also leaked by the ratings bureau. The developer confirmed its accuracy the next day. We've also reached out to Crytek for comment, and will update if we hear back.
