Rumor: Crysis DX11 Patch Tomorrow (Smashed)

There has been a great amount of chatter regarding a DX11 announcement for Crysis 2 sometime tomorrow. It boils down to some statement made on a website called, which is loosely translated below:

Now it is official: the full version of “Crysis 2” will contain no DirectX-11-Modus for the time being. To 28.3. however a further Patch is to follow, which will not only bring DirectX 11 with itself, but also a erweiteres diagram menu will later integrate. Who wants to thus experience the play in full splendour, which should itself still wait a few days.

They briefly suggest that this patch will be released on March 28th, which is tomorrow. With individuals fishing for any kind of news regarding the DX11 patch this statement is spreading like a wildfire around the web. Can this statement really be true or can we smash this rumor right now?

The community managers on the site are deleting threads having to do with this rumor. Furthermore, Tiago Sousa, a Principal R&D Graphics Programmer at Crytek twitted the following:

Cooking some great DX11 tech bits for C2 fans, be patient guys. All I can say, is that we have 16 ms or more to have fun with pc hardware…

Sousa, tells PC gamers to be patient. So far this rumor doesn’t look like it is true. This news post will be updated as more information arises or if nothing appears tomorrow. The good news is that a DX11 patch definitely exists, but its still questionable as to when it will be released.


Community manager Cry-Tom clarified why they are deleting these DX11 threads on mycrysis.

These topics are being deleted because a lot of the information linked in them is not accurate and we do not want to send the community the wrong message. Any other topics created on this subject will be removed and the creating account may be suspended.

As previously stated this rumor is most likely not true and Cry-tom’s statements confirm this.

Update 2:

Tiago Sousa’s Twitter post was deleted. This move could have been connected to all of the commotion revolving around it.

Update 3:

Community manager Cry-Tom has bluntly stated that there wont be any patch today after closing quite a few threads.

Locking the thread, no-one has confirmed a patch today, if/when there is news on such a topic it will be posted on MyCrysis amongst other places.

No patch was ever confirmed, I have no idea why this website even posted such information. This thread is locked just the same as the others for trying to spread inaccurate information. When there are any big announcements regarding Crysis 2 they will be posted on MyCrysis, if you read something about a patch for example, but don’t see it on, then it isn’t genuine.

There you have it. It looks like this rumor has been smashed.
