Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Delayed Until April 2017 For “Further Polish And Optimisation”

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has a new release date of April 4th, 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC after suffering a further delay to allow the developer more time to polish and optimise the game.

Developer CI Games made the decision to push the game back to April 2017 after receiving a lot of positive feedback from players, fans and the media throughout 2016. “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,” said Marek Tymiński, CEO of CI Games.

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 optimising 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.”

The third title in the franchise sees players assume the role of Jonathan North, an American sniper who finds himself near Russian borders in northern Georgia. With the largest open world maps the series has ever seen and a day/night cycle that truly impacts gameplay, it’s no surprise to see CI further delay Ghost Warrior 3.

Tymiński finished by saying “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 franchise.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 releases April 4th, 2017 for PS4, PC and Xbox One.

    I get that. I’d rather get a finished product in April than play the game in January with bugs. We would still have to wait some time for the patches to be released. So I respect CI Games for their decision

    • Maldy

      That was bald a bald decision but I respect it as well. It’s only like 2 months longer. Look at what happened with Mafia III. Hopefully SGW3 will be well polished upon the release date

      • DannyB

        Oh yeah the game was so repetitive. If only they worked on it a bit longer.. I am excited about the fact that SGW 3 will be present at PSX. Maybe we will get some new gameplays

        • hooker

          There will be new gameplay for sure. CIG are promoting SGW3 very hard. And trailers show less.

  • Clamp

    There is realy hard to finish game in a hurry, so i dont blame CI Games for delay. I think, that they will make this game better and quality of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be on hig level. Higher then we can imagine.

  • Noizy Bird

    After last problems with AAA games i think, that CI Games made a good decision. They felt, that this game is not good, not good as it should be. That’s why they delayed a game. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be like diamond, without treatment but after this it will be brilliant.

  • Robert

    I’m pretty sure they just want to work on it and optimize everything. If there are still some things they need to repair, this is a good decision.

    • hooker

      Not repair. ‘Prepair’ 😉 They want to prepair us for asskicking game!! ;))))))) I can’t wait, I hope they won’t delay it anymore.

      • Robert

        ;)))) I hope so, bro. I heard that on PS players will have a chance to play Sniper Ghot Warrior 3 next month! Is this true?

  • Clamp

    Its a good decision and i just want to share with new material from game. New Sniper Ghopst Warrior 3 gameplay: : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=842_kGkRa14

    • Noizy Bird

      Nice gameplay movie. I was wonderd about these different bullets in equipnement. No i can see how to use them:)

    • hooker

      Same thing again. It says ‘video is private’. What’s wrong? What should I do to fix it up? Somebody help me plz!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Clamp

        I dont know what is happening, but these movies are just vanishing. This is almost fresh link, it should work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVXz4nokA3E

        • Robert

          OMG, it looks so f***ing amazing, I can’t believe it!! Wow, this is gonna be awesome, I can’t wait to try it out!!!!!

          • Clamp

            Oh, you shoudl aiming in events nearby you location. Maybe it will be and you could play. But there is many variables in this topic like your country, city day off in work and so so so:)

        • Fatty

          Thank you for re-uploading it. This gameplay looks awesome! I loved when the guy shot the car and the alarm went off. I hope there will be more interactive things in the game just like that

          • Clamp

            No problem. This tirck with car was quite clever. I hope,[like you] that there will be more luring tricks to use in the game. Maybe not so much like in Hitman, but still it would be nice feature.

          • Will4you

            For me this sniper faith is something interesting, well if you can use objects, to distract enemies, it’s a cool add-on to game. Hope that will be useful, and I can learn to use it, because, sometimes I had huge problems with this tricks . Sometimes i would play like a warrior.

          • Clamp

            Somtimes i miss the feeling that was in Commandos series. Especially in Commadnos Strike Force, when we must cheat on enemy soldier dressed as one of the higher rank officer. That was acutally work for Spy. Some of this could be impelented in SGW3, as a side mission.

          • mistydrakkar

            In Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 you can play only the warrior mode, so it may be a little similar, but I know what you mean.

          • Clamp

            Only warrior mode and only on a full adrenailne:)) There were few interviews in the last time released to the web, so we can find out, that we can choose which style is better for us. One is Rambo style, second Sneak Style and the last one – main style – sniper from a long distance. So we have a choice:)

  • hooker

    This is terrible… I do not want to wait any minute more! I thought the mage will be released this year, then they said it’s gonna be released in January and now we have to wait another 3 months since last date… Its not fair!

    • mistydrakkar

      Life’s no fair, life’s a bitch ;)))))) On the other had we’ll probably receive opimized game ready to play. I think it’s worth to wait.

      • hooker

        I know, I know, I was just kiddin’. But I wait fr this games such a long time, it’s understandable I’m a little pissed.

  • hooker

    OK, now you can check out how it works on PS4. Very good in my opinion.

      Very good gameplay, but shows nothing new 🙁 I hope I’ll find in this game something surprising next year.
