Last month, we reported on an Electronic Arts announcement stating that the demo for Crytek's upcoming first-person shooter Crysis would come out on September 25. However, as Shacknews reports, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has now announced that the demo has been postponed until October 26.
Explaining the reason for the delay, Yerli says, "We are taking some extra time to make sure you that you have an amazing experience but also we did not want to risk the release date of Crysis at this stage. To get the game into your hands by November the 16th, we had to make this call."
That said, Yerli does give modders something to look forward to: "The SP demo will be released with our CryEngine 2 - Sandbox 2 game editor, giving the community the opportunity to get familiar with the vast amount of tools they will have at their disposal four weeks before we ship." According to Yerli, Crysis is "only a few weeks" away from being completed.
