Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Delayed To April 25th For Xbox One, PS4, PC
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Delay
(Last Updated On: March 6, 2017)

CI Games announced that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 finally has a solid release date after suffering a minor delay. The game will now launch for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC starting April 25th.

Marek Tyminski, CEO of CI Games, commented in the press release about the delay, saying…

“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.”

The delay adds three additional weeks onto the development of the game, pushing it from out of the late March, early April region and into the late April window. The spring release was likely also due to the fact that it gives it a few more weeks of clearing from BioWare’s Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Even though some people have claimed that they won’t be supporting BioWare due to Mass Effect: Andromeda’s designer going on a racist tirade, there’s still going to be some people rushing out to support Electronic Arts due to Stockholm Syndrome, and others who will need to buy whatever it is that BioWare makes, and then there are those who still feel the Mass Effect name carries the same kind of weight it did five years ago.

Regardless, a few extra weeks of polish and space can’t hurt a niche first-person shooter like Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. It’s crazy because a few years ago, back during 2008 through 2011, a military FPS would have been all the rage, but after military shooter bubble burst and a bunch of games and studios went bust, the military FPS sub-genre has dwindled greatly, with the exception of Battlefield and Call of Duty.

MOBA-style hero shooters are now all the rage thanks to Overwatch and its Rule34-worthy cast of characters.

Anyway, you can check out Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One starting April 25th next month.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUtQi6PE-kY Here’s the new gameplay, this time this is SIDE MISSION. I’m glad they’ve decided to go with it.

  • Maldy

    I don’t mind playing this game 3 weeks later. There’s a new story trailer and it looks great. I hope that the game will be awesome https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mxb-DgD0SXg

      I hope this story will be great! He has soldier duties, in other hand duties for brother. I hope that he cannot rescue him and go with revenge to all who killed his little brother.

      • Robert

        Looks like the story will be OK 🙂 Trailer is amazing, the best so far. I hope they won’t delay it anymore.

    • DannyB

      I have just watched the trailer you’ve posted and I have to say that I am impressed! It’s so intense and I love the fact that they’ve finally revelled a bit more about the story

  • Fatty

    Wow man this is an awesome screenshot! If the game is going to look like that on 25th April I am actually OK with waiting!

    • DannyB

      I think that this might actually be a bullshot but I’d like the game to look like that as well. We’ll have to wait and see I guess

      • Fatty

        I doubt that games look as good when you play them in comparison to screenshots. I’ve seen the new trailer that @disqus_dva3sTZb9Y:disqus posted and i really liked the graphics

        • DannyB

          I have to check it out now. Well I know that a still image will look better than a video but it’d be lovely to see graphics like that in SGW 3 🙂

  • Phasmatis75

    Anyone dumb enough to buy Andromeda deserves the horrible product they get. There is nothing in the advertisement that suggests this will be even remotely a decent game.

    • Fatty

      If what you are saying will turn out to be true, I will cry like a little baby 🙁 I love previous ME games, and I hope that both games: SGW 3 and Andromeda will turn out to be awesome

      • Phasmatis75

        I formally request you video tape yourself crying and upload it for our viewing pleasure.

        • Robert

          Actually I’d like to watch it as well 🙂 Because this is the stupidest reaction I’ve ever heard of 🙂

          • Phasmatis75

            Considering how absolutely horrible the game turned out the fact he’s not delivering shows how much a liar he was.

      • Maldy

        Haha I’d also like to see you cry! When I saw the ending of ME 3 I knew that the series was finished although I loved previous parts. Hope that SGW 3 will be awesome

        • Fatty

          Yeah the ending maybe wasn’t as good as you’d hope for, but you see it all the time in games, movies and TV shows
