Well, that was unexpected.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has finally arrived after a beta and a couple of delays. Unfortunately, though, its only a single-player experience, with the planned multiplayer mode now set to release later this year.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3’s multiplayer mode is now scheduled to release in Q3 this year as part of a free update. According to CI Games, the decision was made so as “not to dilute any potential” from the main campaign.
The following statement by CI Games has been issued regarding Sniper Ghost Warrior 3’s multiplayer delay.
“Throughout our development of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, we have had two focus. The first is to provide the best possible single player experience in our most ambitious game in the Sniper Ghost Warrior series to date. This has always been our goal and we are extremely proud of all the work we have done, and that we share with you. The second emphasis from us is to provide regular content updates post-launch, focusing on content that enhances the gaming experience.
Therefore, we have chosen to release the multiplayer update (that will be free for our players) after launch (the third quarter of 2017) for precisely the above reasons, that is not to dilute any potential from the single player experience.”
