Demo of Crysis sacrifices self to preserve retail release
All Microsoft Xbox 360 owners have September 25 marked on calendars as being the launch day of the highly anticipated first-person shooter,
. For PC-only gamers, however, that very same day was supposed to be
host to the playable demo of another much awaited game
. Unfortunately, September 25 will now only play host to one of those games, as the
demo will not be released.
Cevat Yerli, CEO of
developer Crytek, sent a message to the media apologizing for the delay, explaining that the demo had to be delayed in order to assure the retail release target.
“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
at this stage,” said Yerli. “To get the game into your hands by November the 16th, we had to make this call.”
As a result, the demo will be delayed a month to October 26, but will come with a couple extras for gamers.
“The SP demo will be released with our CryEngine 2 - Sandbox 2 game editor, giving the community the opportunity to get familiar with the vast amount of tools they will have at their disposal four weeks before we ship, something we have always wanted to do," Yerli explained.
Although gamers are surely disappointed by the delay, Crytek looks to keep its promise for the
shipment of the final product
“This is an exciting time for us at the studio as the development of Crysis comes to an end and we are only a few weeks from Gold Master,” added Yerli. “We appreciate your patience and are looking forward to getting Crysis into your hands on November 16.”

I tried the Quake Wars demo. It sucked. Felt like a 10 year old game with prettier graphics.
I'm running a E6600 @ 3GHz, 2GB of RAM, an X1950XTX, and dual raptors in RAID0 so I'm hoping for 1680x1050 with high details. Still downloading. Won't get a chance to play it till tomorrow though.
