Sad news today for fans eagerly awaiting City Interactive Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, as the studio has announced that the game is being pushed back - again. This time, delayed to a January 2013 release date.
Originally scheduled for an August release date, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 was pushed back to October of this year. Now, sadly, it's being delayed even further and will not likely launch in 2012 at all. There hasn't been a very solid reason given for this push-back, although Namco-Bandai PR representative Lee Kirkton did say that, "It's key we all want this title to be fantastic in the genre and the leading SNIPER game for sure. The engine is fantastic and the level of polish is also key to the title's success. As soon as the official announcement through the publisher is available I will provide it."
With Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 hoping to grab as much attention in the first-person shooter market as possible, it's likely that City Interactive and Namco-Bandai did not want to go head-to-head with other fall releases, which include the likes of Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
