Now it turns out that they could be related to a remaster of the original game!

But that's not all, as with the PS5 and Xbox Series X arriving later this year, there's a good chance we could see the remastered title on next-gen consoles.

What's more, is that Cyberpunk 2077 fans playing on Xbox One will receive a free version of the game for Xbox Series X if they have already bought it - so why not Crysis?
