German developer Crytek has moved to reassure gamers that it remains committed to the PC despite the leak of a near complete build of upcoming shooter Crysis 2.
Over the weekend Crytek and publisher EA issued a joint statement on the leak, saying, "Piracy continues to damage the PC packaged goods market and the PC development community."
Now Crytek boss Cevat Yerli has had his say, reaffirming the popular studio's belief in the PC as a viable platform.
"Despite this unfortunate incident, we can assure you that PC gaming is very important to us and will always be important to Crytek in the future," he wrote in a statement provided to mycrysis.com.
"We are all still focused on delivering a great gaming experience to our true and honest fans. I hope you will enjoy Crysis 2 on PC, as we think it is our best PC game yet!
"We appreciate all of your continued support, and look forward to playing online with you soon!"
The leaked version of the game is, according to reports, a PC beta version that requires a degree of coaxing to run.
