Fix incoming for buggy Crysis 2 demo

Users report freezing, server drop-outs.

Crysis 2 developer Crytek is working on a patch to address a number of bugs in the game's Xbox 360-exclusive demo.

Since the demo launched on Xbox Live yesterday, users have reported regularly being disconnected from the game's servers and screen freezing during the online matchmaking process.

A post on the developer's forums today, spotted by Joystiq, read, "We are paying close attention to the forums and online discussion. It's good to see many players having a great time. However, we do understand that a few players are having technical issues with the demo. We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible, we apologise if it is affecting your experience."

The full, ideally bug-free version of Crytek's FPS sequel launches on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 25th March.
