CI Games announced today that their upcoming title Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has been delayed until April 4, 2017. The reason for the delay is so that the game can receive further polish and optimization.
Marek Tymiński, CEO of CI Games talked about the delay and said, “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.”
Delays always suck, but it’s never a bad thing when a developer takes their time to create the best possible product. Let’s hope CI Games achieves their goal and redefines the sniping genre when Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 releases next year.
