After the trailer leaked early, Crytek decided to postpone the release of Crysis Remastered to improve the visuals which the fans criticized looked the same or even worse than the original version. But it seems the Switch version will be released earlier than other platform versions.
It makes sense to see Switch is not a console that focuses on its visual capabilities, so the developer doesn’t need to worry about previous fan criticism and only needs to make sure the game port runs smoothly.
Via Twitter, Crysis Remastered is confirmed to be released on July 23rd 2020 for the Nintendo Switch. But for other platforms there is no new information about it.

In the past, this game from Crytek became the “heaviest” game to run on a PC, even the hardware that was available when the game was released was unable to run the game at the highest setting. Unexpectedly 13 years later, this game with Cry Engine will get a port for a Nintendo hybrid console with Tegra X1.
Crysis Remastered Nintendo Switch version will be sold at $29.99 USD and according to a page on the Nintendo eShop, the game will require 6.2 GB of storage which is approximately equivalent to the first PC version.
