Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 release date delayed

Developers CI Games have pushed the release date back following user feedback on the beta.

The prevailing opinion is that delays are never a good thing, right? People get themselves all bent out of shape for some reason – just look at the nonsense around No Man’s Sky – but when you actually take a minute to think about it, you shouldn’t get so upset.

Why? No developer is going to take lightly the decision to delay their game. It’s more than likely going to cost them money – if not through reduced revenue on the back of public tantrums, then simply through increased costs for more development time – so they wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t in the best interests of everyone, players and studio alike.

Try and keep all that in mind, then, when reading that the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 release date has been delayed by CI Games. Again.

“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.” – Marek Tyminski, CEO of CI Games

The Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 release date, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One – following the latest delay, of course – is now April 25, 2017.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
