While millions of Xbox 360 owners will likely be getting their copy Halo 3 tomorrow, it seems FPS addicts hoping to get a sneak peek at Crytek's graphically impressive PC shooter, Crysis, will have to wait a little longer, as the much anticipated demo which was earlier confirmed for September 25 has now been pushed back to October 26. In a statement, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli, said:
"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."
This will no doubt upset many PC gamers eagerly awaiting the demo's release. However, to compensate for the delay, Yerli said that the demo will come with the CryEngine 2 Sandbox game editor, giving the community the opportunity to get familiar with the tools they will have at their disposal four weeks before the actual game ships.
