Crysis 2 in autumn, MP beta planned

Multiformat shooter sets its sights.

EA has said that Crysis 2 will be released this autumn and will be preceded by the unceasingly popular multiplayer beta.

The autumn target was specified in an advert in trade mag MCV, EA having previously said to expect it in calendar-Q4. October or November, then, presumably.

As for the beta, there are no exact details on it, but fans of Crytek's output who sign up to today's relaunched MyCrysis service (thanks VG247) will be in with a shout, according to the developer.
