Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 was originally set to be released on January 27, 2017 but,unfortunately for sniping fans, the game has been delayed to a Spring release of April 4.
The game will be the first in the series to be open world and this means that there is far more work to be done in order to make sure it’s a polished experience. In a statement, developer and publisher CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski said:
“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.”
It’s always disappointing when a game is delayed but worth it if it means the finished product is higher in quality. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is set to be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Wii U.
