Amid ongoing connectivity problems, EA and Crytek have pulled the plug on the PS3 multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 just three days after it arrived on the PlayStation Store. "Though many gamers have had a great experience playing the demo, we are aware that others have been experiencing server connection delays," a statement on EA's forums reads.

The publisher explains that the swift demise of the demo is intended to give Crytek time to "ensure all issues are resolved when the game launches next week." This isn't the first time EA has yanked a Crysis 2 multiplayer demo -- the original Xbox 360 version was pulled due to similar issues and later replaced with an updated release.
