CI Games, the development studio behind Lords of the Fallen and the Sniper: Ghost Warrior franchise, has announced a new release date of April 4th, 2017, for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, so it may further polish and optimize its upcoming game currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game was originally scheduled for release on January 27th, 2017, as we had previously reported.
CI Games has received excellent feedback from hands-on sessions with press, streamers and fans, and as a result, wants to offer its supporters more features in the game for 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.”
