Bad news, again, out of the City Interactive camp as Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has once again been delayed. The game, originally scheduled for an August, 2012 release date was pushed back to January of this year, but unfortunately won't be seeing the light of day until March. Interestingly, City Interactive isn't announcing this as a delay but rather simply announcing it as if it were the target date all along.
The official announcement reads:
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, follow up to the best-selling sniper game of all time, is on target to hit store shelves on March 15th.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is the only multi-platform, first-person, modern shooter exclusively designed around the sniper experience. Taking advantage of the advanced capabilities of the CryENGINE3, it delivers striking graphic environments; more diverse sniper challenges; a rebuilt AI system and the thrilling “one shot; one kill” precision that made the original a huge hit, selling 3 million copies worldwide.
And so on and so forth.
At any rate, the game is now scheduled to release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on March 15th, 2013 so make sure you stay tuned to FPS General as we get closer to the launch date!
