Crytek: We remain committed to PC gaming despite leak

By on February 15, 2011, 8:00 AM
The recent leak of Crytek's highly anticipated Crysis 2 on torrent sites had left many worried about the developer's support for the PC platform in the future. The company had already dropped PC exclusivity in 2008 after Crysis was savaged by piracy, so the prospect of them abandoning PC development altogether is certainly something that crossed many gamer's minds. Fortunately, CEO Cevat Yerli has has moved to reassure everyone that that's not going to happen.

"While we are deeply disappointed by these events, we are all completely overwhelmed by the support we have received from you", wrote Yerli referring to the leak. "Despite this unfortunate incident, we can assure you that PC gaming is very important to us and will always be important to Crytek in the future. We are all still focused on delivering a great gaming experience to our true and honest fans. I hope you will enjoy Crysis 2 on PC, as we think it is our best PC game yet!"


The leaked version of the game is reportedly an incomplete version that requires some minor tweaking to run but is playable from start to finish. The game will see a multi-platform release on March 22, 2011 in the United States and March 25, 2011 in Europe, with a PC demo supposedly coming ahead of launch.
