Crysis 2 beta invites going out, will kick off “soon”

Those among the early bird registrants on the relaunched this summer, best check those inboxes; Crytek has begun sending out invites to its advertised Crysis 2 multiplayer beta.

As expected, the testing is taking place on Xbox 360 only, though the invite itself does suggest PC and PS3 owners may get in on the fun as well. It reads: “This tech test is limited to Xbox 360 consoles only this time around[emphasis added].”

The actual testing that’ll show what the 70-strong team at Crytek UK has been up to is said to begin “very soon.”

The full game is expected for all PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March 2011; the 22nd in North America, 25th in Europe.
