Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Release is Pushed Back Again


Developer CI Games has delayed Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] yet again. The game was originally slated for release this year, but in June we heard that it wouldn’t hit shelves until January 2017. Today CI Games stated that they wouldn’t be hitting that release window either.

Marek Tymiński, CEO of CI Games, made this statement about the decision to delay the release:

“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 optimising 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 franchise.”

Ensuring that the game is optimised for every release platform is as good a reason to delay as any. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is now slated for an April 4, 2017, release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    Hmmm, hopefully they re-cast the English protagonist voice actor, as what was heard in the extended demo released earlier this year was fucking abysmal. If that is contributing to the delay, please, so be it.

    Game looked OK otherwise. Still quite excited for Sniper Elite IV though, much more so than this game.

    That guy must have an epic FoV. Remember to add a FoV slider devs!

    Between this post and the Diablo 4 rumor one, there is a lot of wasted opportunities for staring eyes tags…

      Pray tell, what other crucial information is pertinent to the story?

    People take delays far too seriously. Those who are genuinely interested in this game are most likely long-term fans of the series, people like myself. I know these guys can deliver a game I’ll enjoy, so there’s no need for panic or concern.

    It’s a shame that the release date was delayed. But hopefully they will finish the game by the time they release it and we won’t need any patches on the release date – as it heppend with Mafia 3 and Shadow Warrior 2

    For me delay is better way than release the game with a lot og bugs. I prefer wait a little longer for the game and enjoy playing on the game than play on the game which need to fix quick.
