It looks like it’s going to be a bumpy ride for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, the open world first-person tactical shooter developed by CI Games, as the studio announced that the video game will be delayed again.
We say again because Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 was already delayed in June 2016, when CI Games reported that the latest installment in the Sniper: Ghost Warrior series will be released on January 27, 2017.
Now, the Polish developer and publisher made another announcement, pushing back the release of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 again.
This means that fans of the series will be able to play Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 starting April 25, 2017, assuming that no other delays will occur by that time.
CI Games offered additional details on why the team decided to delay Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3.
“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.
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” said Marek Tymiński of CI Games.
So, if you are eager to start sniping bad guys in Georgia and other locations while playing as Jonathan North, you will have to wait just a little bit longer.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is developed and published by CI Games. It is the third title in the Sniper: Ghost Warrior franchise which debuted in 2011.
The video game will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will also include a Limited Edition which is available on Amazon for $59.96.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Limited Edition unlocks a female sniper and “The Escape of Lydia” campaign which serves as a prequel to the game’s story missions.
