CI Games announced today that the highly anticipated third installment of the Sniper: Ghost Warrior franchise will miss its January 2017 release date, and will now adjust its sights for a April 4, 2017 launch.
“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 abandon the linear structure used by its predecessors, letting players explore an open world and take on targets however they want.
