Any thoughts of actual, quality, timely support for the PC is dead. So you have 2 options, don't buy any more Crytek games or be satisfied with gaming spec's from 5 years ago. personally if I've got this much money in a computer system I'm going to play games that utilize the whole system. BF3 will be realised while I'm doing a tour, but that will be the next game I purchase.
In case you can't read between the lines Crytek's 'central goal' is of course to make as much money as possible..

The company's R&D principal graphics engineer, Tiago Sousa, responds to that mindset in a new interview with Digital Foundry, saying that a multiplatform approach in developing Crysis 2 was beneficial to the company's central goal -- which is to make big-budget games, not just budget-hostile benchmarks. "The PC market just does not support that cost of development, but going multi-platform does," Sousa said. "If making a game that is bigger, better, more stable, performs better across a wider range of hardware, provides a continued visual benchmark for PC gaming, and more fun with a huge single-player and multiplayer offering is considered selling out, that seems like a really odd application of the phrase. The decision to go multi-platform has allowed us to bring a better game to everyone, which has been our goal all along."
