In an elegant and swift update on the Crysis 2 forums, Crytek announced the game would receive DirectX 11 support in the future through the release of a patch, but not until the developer was sure it would satisfy PC gamers in every sense of the word.
“We would like to announce that there will be a DX11 patch released for Crysis 2. We are working to get the best out of DX11, so we’ll wait to announce the features until a little closer to release,” read the announcement.
There was no mention of a release date, despite numerous user comments, going on for pages on end, attempting to get one. But there’s no news like good news – at least for those with a DX11 compatible graphics card wondering why the game wasn’t ready for DX11 in the first place – so we’ll patiently wait.
