Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 fans hoping to get hands on the game on April 4th will be disappointed…again. CI Games is adding another three weeks to the game’s development. The new release date is scheduled for April 25th.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Delay, Delay, Delay
You’re correct if you’re thinking that this is the second delay of the game. Originally, SGW3 was set to come out in January (“further polish and optimize”) though the team wanted more time. The second release became April 4th but as this most recent announcement attests, even more time is needed. Set your calendar for April 25th…unless there are more delays in store.
So what is it this time? CEO Marek Tyminski said, “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.”
Well…OK. Finished and polished is good.
What is SGW3?
The game is a tactical FPS but with a difference from the other two in the series. This time, the world is being made more open, less linear. Players can choose how to proceed through the world with tons of different quests and activities to take part in along the way. According to CIG, this makes things more ‘accessible’ both for veterans of the series and new players.
Optional Season Pass features:
- season pass to include two major single player missions (The Escape of Lydia and The Sabotage)
- two multiplayer maps
- sniper rifle
- compound bow
- monthly updates with exclusive content drops
- special events
