CI Games, the developer behind Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, have officially announced that the game has been delayed and will now not release until Q2 2017. The reason behind the delay is so that extra time can be spent optimising and polishing the game, as well as extra features after receiving feedback from press, streamers and fans.
“We’re making an ambitious game and unfortunately still need an extra few months to make sure it will stand up to the expectations of the fans,” said Marek Tymiński, CEO of CI Games. “Our goal is to ensure Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 runs smoothly on all platforms, and right now we still have some important work left on optimizing the game. This is our biggest project we’ve ever worked on and the entire team is pushing really hard to make the entire experience more polished. I really hope everyone will understand our decision and will wait the extra time to play something we’re excited about, and that will redefine our IP and the sniping genre as a whole. This is a new beginning for the Sniper: Ghost Warrior series.”
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will now release on April 4th, 2017 for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
