The first entrant in the series, Crysis, was originally released in 2007 exclusively for PC and was touted as one of the most graphically demanding games of the time, and to this day still holds up in various aspects of the game. Crysis got a remaster back in September 2020 and was the first game to introduce real-time ray tracing on the PS4 and the Xbox One. Fast forward 9 months, Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 will now be made available on the current-gen consoles with improved graphics and gameplay.

Project lead, Steffen Halbig said that each game will be enhanced to look and play beautifully on the latest hardware.
“We’re excited to announce that these iconic Crysis games are returning in one bundle, remastered for a new generation of hardware. Each game is enhanced to look and play beautifully on today’s platforms, delivering the finest Crysis experience for both newcomers to our classic franchise or players wishing to relive the adventure.”
The three-game bundle will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and for PC, with the game playing even smoother on current gen PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Crysis Remastered is available for these platforms now, and the remasters of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 will also be made available separately.
