Crysis 2 PC users will see a DirectX 11 patch in two to three months time, so says a report from our colleagues at

According to an anonymous trusted source, Crytek only started to develop for DirectX 11 in November 2010 and was unable to get it ready in time for the game's launch earlier this month.

The source also claimed that DirectX 10 will not be supported in future, as it's rendered obsolete by DirectX 11.

Yesterday, a Crytek community manager posting on the game's official forum poured water on speculation that a patch was imminent.

"No patch was ever confirmed, I have no idea why this website even posted such information" he wrote, referring to a Maximum PC story claiming that an update would arrive on Monday.

A spokesperson for publisher EA then added "We have not made any official announcements about a patch yet."
