It looks like Crytek has more Crysis Remasters on the horizon, as the studio has started dropping hints that they could be working on a new version of Crysis 2. 

On Twitter, Crytek's Crysis Twitter account said one thing, "They used to call me Prophet." That line is from the opening of Crysis 2, clearly hinting at a future remaster. Unfortunately, this means that Crysis: Warhead may not be getting remastered, which I believe is a missed opportunity given the success of Crysis Remastered on PC and consoles. 

While Crysis 2 offers gameplay that is dissimilar to its predecessor, it is the game that made the series a mainstream success, being the first title in the series to launch on both PC and console platforms. This is what made the series a mainstream success, even if the game was poorly received by gamers at launch. 

Crysis 2 Remastered was given several post-launch PC updates that delivered enhanced visuals on PC, giving gamers enhanced textures, new DirectX 11 features and higher-end graphics options. Crysis 2 Remastered will likely use these PC only features and add even more upgrades to the game, such as ray tracing support and 4K-ready texture upgrades. 

At this time, we do not know when Crytek will officially announce Crysis 2: Remastered, though we expect the company to reveal the game sometime soon.

Fantastic news...another new version of Crysis 2. I am sure that all new upcoming upgrades will be FREE to download onto your original game. As Microsoft previously said: "It's all to enhance our existing and loyal customer experience.Quote

So just like Crysis 1 Remaster, They're going to reuse an old version of the Cryengine and slap on some shiny half baked features along with textures that look worse than the modded original Crysis 2 .... woo.Quote

They needn't bother. Crysis 2 was designed with consoles in mind because Crytek was too greedy and they wanted console money, so they stripped the sequel of everything that made the original so great.Quote
