Crysis is a science fiction first-person shooter computer game developed by German company Crytek and published by Electronic Arts, and is the first game of a planned trilogy. It was released on November 13, 2007 in North America, November 15 in Australia, November 16 in Europe, November 23 in New Zealand, and November 29 in Japan. Initial NPD sales numbers were taken as a sign that the game had flopped, and thus leading many gamers and even journalists to go so far as to declare the death of PC gaming all together. However, during EA's Q3 2008 Earnings Conference Call, it was stated that Crysis had sold over 1 million copies worldwide in the fiscal quarter and that the game continues to exceed sales expectations.
