Crytek's apocalyptic FPS appears to have slipped into next year. Although previously planned as a "holiday" release (Q4 2010), EA's latest financial report places Crysis 2 in the first quarter of 2011 (January–March). Barring any further changes, Crysis 2 joins a rather crowded lineup for early 2011, including EA's own Dead Space 2, Bulletstorm, Darkspore, Fight Night Champion, and the newly confirmed Need for Speed: Shift 2. It appears next year's first quarter will be just as hectic as this year's was.

EA may offer further insight into the delay during its investor call, happening now. Stay tuned for updates.
