CI Games has announced that they will be delaying the release of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 until April 25, 2017. The delay is due to feedback the team received during recent beta tests. The team feels that this additional delay will result in a better experience for players on day one.
While this isn’t the first delay that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has seen, it’s good to see the development team acknowledging and making these tough decisions to ensure they are putting out a quality game rather than a rushed, unfinished mess.
Marek Tyminski, CEO of CI Games had this to say regarding the recent delay:
“We’ve worked tirelessly creating a whole new Sniper Ghost Warrior experience set in an ambitiously crafted open world new to the series,”. “While it’s an unfortunate decision to delay the game one last time, we believe these final changes will result in a better experience for players worldwide on day one. Thank you for your patience – we know the wait will be worth it.”
In Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, players will be able to explore large open-world maps with dynamic weather and a day and night cycle that impacts play and decisions. You will also be able to customize weapon equipment, accessories and vehicles.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be accompanied by a season pass which can be obtained for free for those who pre-order. In the meantime you can check out our Hands-off Preview of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 and a developer commentary gameplay trailer.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 launches on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on April 25, 2017.
