Crysis 2 is a first-person shooter developed by Crytek, published by Electronic Arts and released in North America, Australia, and Europe in March 2011 for Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Officially announced on June 1, 2009, the game is the second main installment of the Crysis series, and is the sequel to the 2007 video game Crysis and Crysis Warhead. The story was written by author Richard Morgan, and another science fiction author, Peter Watts, was also consulted and wrote a novel adaptation of the game. It was the first game to showcase the CryEngine 3 game engine.

Crysis 2 takes place in 2023, three years after the events of the first game, in a destroyed New York City, which has since been evacuated due to alien infestation. The game begins with news footage of ecological disasters and a large outbreak of the "Manhattan virus", a gruesome disease that causes complete cellular breakdown. Civil unrest and panic ensues as the Ceph, the tentacled, squid-like alien race behind the incidents of Crysis, begin to invade. Due to the breakdown in social order within New York City, Manhattan is placed under martial law, and under contract from the US Department of Defense, soldiers from Crynet Enforcement & Local Logistics ("CELL"), a private military company run by the Crynet corporation, move in to police the chaos.
