    Apparently this will also get released on Nintendo Switch and PS4 at the same time. Fingers crossed they don’t goof it up bro!

    The fact that they're planning to do that suggests there will likely be some compromises that we'd be better off without.

    The very first time I played it, I had to finish it with a mix of minimum and mediumt settings, at 1280x800 resolution. It took me several gens/laptops to finally play it at max 60fps ahahaha.

    I am sure consoles will do whatever they can, and in the case of switch, it might be the lowest settings at 720p. I look forward to replay Crysis :) it's my fave out of all the games they made. I hope the physics shenanigans are intact, loved taking out buildings to crush enemies.

    The fact that it's releasing on the Nintendo Switch at all, which is built around an Nvidia Tegra X1, should kill all hype of this being a new graphical benchmark.

    This will be an up-rezzed Crysis with a few graphical flourishes added, nothing special.

    Prove me wrong Crytek.

    It will still be a welcomed reboot if it looks nicer. I love the original just like it is, so that will be icing on the cake if it turns out nice. Hopefully, they won't add anything stupid to it and just focus on making it look nicer without altering any existing aspects. But, in the back of my mind it is a concern that they actually have it on the agenda to make it playable on a piece of crap handheld toy.

    Just having it run without issues on modern hardware and perhaps be properly multi-threaded would be a win. Perhaps with some new higher resolution textures. Removing some of the CPU bottlenecks so modern hardware can go crazy with it would be a win.

    lol.. that handheld toy has some excellent games. It's actually a good thing Nintendo has been opening up to M rated games IMO.

    Yeah, I don't have a problem with that per se, as long as they do not dumb it down for PC gamers to accommodate it. Maybe a separate toned down version for weak hardware.

    I'd really like the PC version to be unusually demanding and stressful, and have minimum system requirements to be no less than current generation GPU, like maybe a minimum of RTX 2060 or equivalent, and no less than say an 8700K CPU or equivalent, in order for it to hold 60 FPS at 1080P with maximum settings. Would also be nice if it needed at least 16GB of DDR4 and 6GB of GDDR6. If they make it as tough for 2020 hardware to run as it was for 2007 hardware, it will be just about perfect. Then maybe they'll get another 13 to 15 years out of the reboot.

    Maybe if they just add RT without DLSS 2.0 they can bring everything to it's knees.
