Crysis 2 “key is already in use”


I just installed Crysis 2, but when I try to log into multiplayer, I’m getting an error message that reads “This key is already in use”. Why am I seeing this? What can I do to fix it?


We have received reports of some Crysis 2 players on PC experiencing this issue with their game’s multiplayer key. A patch to fix this issue is in the works, but until that patch is ready, there is an easy work around solution.

  1. Go to multiplayer and type in your key.
  2. Navigate back to single player.
  3. Go back into multiplayer and re-enter your key.

After completing these three steps, your multiplayer key will be saved, and you will not be required to re-enter it.

UPDATE 4/5/2011

A patch addressing this issue has been made available, please update your game. Please note, you only be able to access multiplayer by using your “5×4″ CD-Key.
