CI Games revealed that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will launch on April 4th, 2017. The game is the first in the franchise to be a true AAA title, which means the game will be larger and more polished compared to the previous two titles. Based on feedback from testers, streamers, and press, the original January 27th, 2017 release date has been pushed back almost three months to give the Polish developers more time to optimize the game. Marek Tymiński, CEO of CI Games, released the following statement in regards to the delay:
“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.”
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is an FPS starring Jonathan North, a sniper sent on a mission in northern Georgia (the country, not the state). The game features large open worlds, and dynamic weather, day/night cycles. The game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
