EA: Crysis 2 Will Be "Another 90 Rated Game From Crytek"
It's great when a publisher is confident in a game, but when you go and predict the review score...well, some not-so-professional reviewers might do something silly.
According to Eurogamer, EA Partners boss David DeMartini has said Crysis 2 will be an elite title; in other words, it'll be a 90+ game. DeMartini first mentioned the delay - the project was originally supposed to be finished for this fall, but it got pushed into March - and said that while they wanted to release it sooner, Crytek is all about "quality, quality, quality." It simply wasn't going to be ready in time:
"A game like Crysis and a team like Crytek's never going to be intimidated by being in any window. But they will always be very careful of not releasing a game until it reaches its full potential. As we collaboratively evaluated when's the right time for it to be ready, 22nd March was the perfect window for the game to hit its maximum potential."
And when it does arrive, DeMartini says quite simply that it'll be "another 90 rated game from Crytek." He's obviously alluding to the original Crysis, which certainly received high review scores, but it was also only available on PC. It's likely that the sequel will be best played on PC (they are primarily PC developers, after all), so it'll be interesting to see if the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions get that elite 9 rating. But like we said, don't go and make that prediction, EA...it might cause a rash of 8.9s. ;)
