Crysis was delisted from Steam on or close to October 12th, 2021. Peculiarly, the game remains available for free as part of the Crysis Maximum Edition bundle which includes Crysis and its standalone expansion, Crysis Warhead. Some speculation suggests that the delisting relates to the Steam version’s archaic DRM and issues with CD keys. Given that all other versions of the game remain available as of this writing, EA may have chosen to delisted the Steam release in order to redirect purchases of the game to their own Origin service. Crysis Remastered, published by Crytek themselves, was released on Steam and PC in September of 2021 and may also have contributed to the decision to remove the original version from sale.

Also around October of 2021, we received one report that the PlayStation 3 release had become unplayable. The game remained on sale on the PlayStation Store but according to this reader only an error was displayed after making their purchase. PlayStation Support later confirmed to the individual that the game was “removed”. That said, the game remains available to purchase on the PlayStation Store as of this writing.
