EA premièred a teaser for Crysis 2 in Time Square meaning, predictably, at least one of the Internet’s vast contingent was available to film it and post it to YouTube.
The trailer currently links to www.sosnewyork.com, which just has a timer (presumably counting down to some HD/expanded trailer goodness), but watch this space!
Lets just hope the game goes some way to explain why we’ve moved from tropical islands to New York!

It even has a cute little PDF for added [...]
EA and Crytek have announced Crysis 2 which will hit the PC, 360 and PS3 and is powered by the new CRYEngine 3 which has been developed with current generation of *real* consoles in mind (because, face it, the Wii just wouldn’t cut it).
“The development of Crysis 2 marks a major stepping stone for our studio,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. “This is not only the next game in the Crysis franchise, it’s the first title we are developing for consoles and the first title being built on CryENGINE 3.
