Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Delayed Again

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has been delayed for a second time, developer CI Games confirmed today. The title will now launch worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 25.

The three-week delay will allow the company to implement changes inspired by fan feedback after the recent beta.

“We’ve worked tirelessly creating a whole new Sniper: Ghost Warrior experience set in an ambitiously crafted open world new to the series,” said CI Games’ CEO Marek Tyminski. “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.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 was supposed to launch on April 4, itself a delay from the previously intended January release. That postponement was said to be in aid of further polish and optimization.

Ghost Warrior 3 marks a major departure from the previous games, as it shifts to the style of an open-world game and features multiplayer. You can read more about all of the major changes in our interview with Tyminski, or take a look at the game in action with some beta gameplay.
