Eager to step up again in the sniper’s boots and experience the unforgiving world of Sniper Ghost Warrior? Unfortunately, we’ve got some bad news for you. CI Games, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3’s developer, had just announced that the game’s launch had been postponed. Thus, the game will not be launched on the 4th of April, but on the 25th of April. Developers said that there are a few things that need to straighten out before the game hits the market.
CI Games, the developer of the critically-acclaimed Sniper Ghost Warrior franchise has just announced that they’ve decided to delay the new game’s launch. Surprisingly enough, this is the second time the company postpones the launch date.
If you recall, CI Games first announced that the game was scheduled to come out in early January. After invoking performance issues which needed to be addressed, the company changed the launch date to the 4th of January.
And now, we are again faced with yet another change of heart. What does this all mean? Well, according to the company’s statements, the game still has a few issues which need to be addressed before it is launched.
Does this mean that we aren’t going to see the third Sniper Ghost Warrior? Most definitely not, said CI Games. Although they are aware that this new delay might upset some of the franchise’s fans, they said that they don’t want to take any chances by releasing a product before it is finished.
Maybe the guys and girls from CI Games HQ realized that they don’t want a No Man’s Sky related incident on their hands. Whatever their reasons may be, it appears that we have to wait for a while longer before we can see the game in action.
So, what’s so different about Sniper Ghost Warrior 3? According to the company, the developers have decided to ditch the whole linear gameplay approach and to go along with an open-world approach.
Combat and stealth systems have been greatly improved as shown in the game’s December walkthrough. Players will be able to use advanced gadgets such as recon drones in order to scout the terrain and will be able to take advantage of eve more items in order to distract soldiers.
All in all, it appears that the third Sniper Ghost Warrior will be a welcome change, and, more than likely, one of the best stealth-based FPS games of 2017.
