It has emerged that Crysis 2 will not come packaged with the EA Online Pass slip that we have all come to expect from our EA games.

GamerTagRadio learned of Crytek’s decision not to go wth the pass at a recent hands on with Crysis 2.

“Since Crytek is in the EA partner program, they were given the option to have the Online Pass. Instead they opted out of it for a couple of reasons. At the time it was offered, the online pass was still in its infancy stages and Crytek did not want Crysis 2 to be a testbed. Secondly; Crytek realizes that most console gamers have not experienced a Crysis game yet. They didn’t want to put a wall up to keep people away from the multiplayer and instead wanted to aim at sustaining its popularity even longer than most first person shooters who’s name doesn’t begin with “Call” or “Halo”.”

Seems like a wise move on Crytek’s part. The more people who play this the better. It’s gonna be a monster.
