You may have heard an early, incomplete PC version of Crysis 2 leaked online recently. Firstly, we hope our readers are good enough to understand why it's important not to pirate and will not do so (yes, even if you say you'll buy later) -- that would mean less PC games and more poor ports, not to mention developers depend on customer loyalty to support themselves and their families.
With that out of the way, following the initial statement, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has issued a personal thanks to the community in the aftermath, noting his pride in both the game, the platform, and Crytek fans:
While we are deeply disappointed by these events, we are all completely overwhelmed by the support we have received from you, our community.
Despite this unfortunate incident, we can assure you that PC gaming is very important to us and will always be important to Crytek in the future. We are all still focused on delivering a great gaming experience to our true and honest fans. I hope you will enjoy Crysis 2 on PC, as we think it is our best PC game yet!
We appreciate all of your continued support, and look forward to playing online with you soon!
So there you have it: piracy is a problem, but sensible studios know there's still enough of a loyal fanbase out there to support them plenty, if catered to.
As for the playing online part, remember a multiplayer demo is coming soon.
