Crysis Release Moves Forward

So when is Crysis coming out?

On Friday, those who had pre-ordered were emailed to let them know pre-loading was beginning on EA's online Store. It seemed to suggest the game would be unlocked on November 9th - a full week early. Well, that hasn't happened, and if you visit the Crysis site it states that the unlock will take place on Wednesday 14th. Which is still a couple of days earlier than expected.

The decision to bring the release forward is either extremely fortunate, or advanced damage control, with the full game having leaked, and appearing on file sharing sites today. This isn't the best news for EA Store, which already makes the rather unfortunate decision to charge customers for the right to maintain their purchased downloads from the site after six months, in what would seem a backward step from buying a boxed copy.

But, the good news is: Crysis two days early!
