Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Delayed Yet Again

The ever-tardy Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has been delayed for another three weeks and will now launch on Tuesday, April 25. At this rate the war will be over by the time you get to drill your first high-velocity bullet through the squishy face of an unsuspecting mark who’s just sat down to eat his dinner over 1500m away.

The single-player tactical shooter was originally scheduled for release in 2016, but has been put back on several occasions as developer CI Games has needed to do further work on optimising and polishing what they describe as their “biggest project” to date. This time around the delay is in response to player feedback received during February’s open beta test. Big wig Marek Tyminski explains:

“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.”

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 sees the series moving from a linear structure to a more ambitious open-ended sandbox format, with strong shades of Far Cry 2. Set in the present, you’ll play an American sniper dropped into a civil-war torn Georgia (that’s the Eastern European country not the US state!). You’ll be able to complete missions using any combination of stealth, sabotage and subterfuge, and good old-fashioned shooting you choose. Between missions, you can head over to unlockable safe houses to take on side-quests as well as craft, customise and upgrade weapons and equipment.

There’ll also be a stronger emphasis on realism over its predecessors. The game will feature dynamic weather and day/night cycles that’ll have a bearing on how you approach objectives. And there will be less assistance with long-range shooting, meaning you will have to compensate for wind and distance, etc, all on your lonesome.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

    That’s sad news. I would love to play this game now and I have to say that I liked what I’ve seen during the beta tests. It’s a shame that I’ll have to wait even longer…

  • turas88

    Damn, it’s sad news. Well, I think that this delay allow CIG to implement few changes inspired by fan feedback after recent beta. I hope that I will get a fully optimized and polished game

  • Clamp

    Not so bad – only three weeks to make game perfect. I can wait so long:)

    • Vall

      For me its not a problem either. I can wait much longer, becouse game will be awesome, also i bought the preorder, so i have to wait anyway :)

      • Clamp

        Heh, lucky you. Did you buy season pass edition?

    • DannyB

      Well to be honest the time between the beta tests and the release in late April is a bit longer than 3 months but I see your point! I hope that SGW 3 will be close to perfect when it’s finally released

      • Clamp

        I think, that now there is no option to go bad. Did you saw story trailer?

        • DannyB

          As a matter of fact I didn’t. I have to find it now and watch it. I thought that I was up to date with SGW 3 news but apparently I have to catch up

          • Robert

            Story trailer is great, check out the new gameplay of side mission too. It’s really badass :) I can’t wait to play the full game.

          • hooker

            I just want them to stop released trailers and gameplays and release the ful game for God’s sake!

          • Clamp

            You will find it above or on YT. Its real good showcase of cutscenes.

    • Maldy

      I really hope that it will be perfect when it’s released. @disqus_5QRSkK2RuU:disqus they still have 5 weeks so I agree with you

      • Clamp

        With such great support form players when open beta was running, im sure, that this game will be one of the best in this year. And CI Games had big plans for longterm support.

  • Noizy Bird

    So maby people is waiting for another sniper adventure and they will be surpirsed, that they need to wait littlebit more. Few weeks – do nothing, only much bigger hunger for that game:)

    • Robert

    This video is unavailable, Could you put the name of this gameplay ? Yesterday I’ve watched new story trailer called “Brothers” It’s on yt too.

  • DannyB

    Oh yeah please upload a working link man. It doesn’t work for me as well and I’d love to see a new gameplay after I’ve found about the trailer

  • Clamp

    And it gone real hardcored. But still not so noisy. Such side mission i think, will have special bonues, right?

    • mistydrakkar

      I hope so, because there would be no point of creating side if they’d be exatly the same…

      • Clamp

        To think about that, there’s a point. Maybe some rare parts will ba aviabale?

  • Clamp

    I hope, there is more such missions not only that one:]

    • Andy

      Surely ;) I’m not developer, but I’m sure that they won’t left us with one great side mission and there will be many of these.

      • Clamp

        You’re righ. One mission would be a joke. And this joke isn’t funny to us. But more mission like this one is a “must proof im the best”:)

  • hooker

    I’m very happy they’ve decided to do some side side missions. Great way to enjoy something out the story for a while.

  • hooker

    Well, this video was posted on this site 2 times, but I watched it again :) I love it.

  • hooker

    WOW, this story trailer is amazing! I’m happy they gave something about it, because we knew nothing until now.

  • mistydrakkar

    I like this gameplay very much and I love the idea of side missions – more killing, more sneaking, more.. everything I like in this game :)

  • mistydrakkar

    I’d like to check out this gaeplay, but I cannot play this video as well unfortunately. Any ohter link to share?

  • mistydrakkar

    Love it. I like that trailer is a little confusing. I hope the story will be complicated and interesting.
