Crysis Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, according to since-removed pages discovered Thursday on the game's official website.

The official description, cited by PC Gamer, describes the remaster as sporting "new graphic features," higher quality textures, and ray tracing that makes use of "CRYENGINE's native hardware and API-agnostic ray tracing solution."

The official Intel Gaming Twitter account tweeted a reveal trailer before hastily deleting it. Mirrors of the video reveal little in the way of details. The release date is listed only as "coming soon."

The official Crysis Twitter account has teased an announcement for days, but has yet to make one.

The original Crysis was released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2007. It immediately earned a reputation as one of the most technically demanding games in history, and has since become a benchmark for PC hardware. The last Crysis game, Crysis 3, was released in 2013.

Update 4/16/20, 2:21 p.m. ET: Crytek released its official Crysis Remastered announcement this afternoon, confirming the leaks. The remaster will focus on the original's single-player campaigns and will feature several graphical bells and whistles, many of which did not appear in the original game.

"We are excited to be working on the Crysis franchise again, and to bgring all the Crysis fans a remaster worthy of their passion for the game," said Crytek CEO Avni Yerli. "It's an exciting opportunity to be able to bring Crysis back to PCs and current consoles — even Nintendo Switch! — so that a whole new generation of players can experience the thrill of a battle in the Nanosuit."

Saber Interactive, the developer responsible for the Switch port of The Witcher 3, will co-develop the remaster.
