Crysis Twitter account Tweets for the first time in over three years

Crytek has once again started to tease a new Crysis game, further feeding the long-term rumours that a Crysis remake is in the works. Today, Crytek’s Crysis Twitter account has Tweeted for the first time in over three years, simply saying “RECEIVING DATA”.  

This is reminiscent of Cyberpunk 2077’s “beep” and “boop” Tweets before the game’s gameplay reveal, further suggesting that a Crysis game reveal is incoming. 

Last month, Crytek placed some clear Crysis references within its “CryEngine Showcase 2020: Games of the Decade” video, hinting at a Crysis remaster. EA has already confirmed that they are working on “exciting remasters of fan favourites“, and that these efforts included two new unannounced EA Partners titles coming from third-party developers”. Beyond that, Crytek has been teasing a return to the Crysis series since as early as August 2019, showcasing an iconic area from the original Crysis in its CryEngine 5.6 tech trailer.

When it comes to EA’s fan favourites, it’s hard to ignore the Crysis series. Even today some PC gamers say “but can it run Crysis” when people upgrade their systems.  Microsoft even delivered backwards compatibility support for the Xbox versions of Crysis, Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, highlighting how modern gamers still yearn for Crysis content. 

With the next generation of consoles on the horizon, there has never been a better time to remake or remaster Crysis. The Crysis series has always push graphical boundaries, and the release of new hardware will give Crytek a chance to bring systems to their knees once again.  


Crytek knows about the speculation regarding a Crysis remake/remaster, and knows that this Tweet will add to the hype surrounding the rumours of a potential new Crysis game. There is no reason to add these hints unless they are teasing a future Crysis remake, or an entirely new game. If Crytek isn’t making a new Crysis, they are setting their fanbase up for a world of disappointment.
