Developer CI Games has announced that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, previously scheduled for release on April 4, 2017, will now be available three weeks later on April 25 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

This delay, says CI, will allow the company to utilise the information and feedback gathered from the game’s recent weekend Beta to make major improvements to Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 before launch.

“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,” said CI’s CEO said Marek Tyminski on the matter. “Thank you for your patience—we know the wait will be worth it,” he said in addition.

This is the second time the game has been delayed after it was initially expected to launch in January of this year.

    Well, its not a news that i was expecting, but i can understand what motivates CI Games with taking such decission. I only hope, that this is the last final date and that they deliver very good game.

  • Noizy Bird

    So whats a big deal? They just need to put more work in to this game to be sure, that we will play without problems.

    • Fatty

      As far as I know the game is already finished by now and they are manufacturing the physical copies at the moment. I do hope that they fixed those few bugs that were present during beta

      • DannyB

        I am sure about that man. They got a massive feedback after beta tests but they really had loads of time to fix the bugs. Don’t worry about it man

        • Fatty

          Oh yeah and I’ve heard some people say that CI Games is actually working on a day zero patch but it might be only a rumour

    • mistydrakkar

      My thoughts exactly. If they need more time, I say et’s give it to them. We can’t do anything about it anyway, so let’s stop complaining.

  • Fatty

    After watching the last killing compilation on youtube I am certain that this game will be awesome. There’s a lot more to the game than sniping 🙂 check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjNcdZGrLsk

    • mistydrakkar

      LOL, this is hilarious 😀 I think this is the first IGN’s video that relly made me laugh 😉 Mostly they’re pathetic.

      • Fatty

        Well you are a bit harsh but I know what you mean… Well at least this one was funny as hell!

        • Gounder

          I don’t really like the articles at ign where they are trying to be funny as @mistydrakkar:disqus. Hope that from now on those are going to be more entertaining. SGW 3 montage is awesome!

          • Fatty

            I haven’t seen any other ‘funny ign videos’ but I’ll take your word for it. I also hope to see more legitimately funny videos

    • Robert

      ‘Refusing to snipe’ should be the one of the possible styles of playing 😀 Not warrior style or ghost style – another one involving chaos 😀

      • Fatty

        Yeah it’s a mix of warrior style, a bit of ghost style and a lot of d**k shoot style 😛 Oh, I am so funny

    • Maldy

      That’s an awesome video man! I did see it afew times now but it’s just so fun! @disqus_YO7RPvx2Mc:disqus I like the name – “Chaos style” It could work :)))

      • Fatty

        It’s even better when you re-watch it if you ask me 😀 I can’t wait for the game. 5 days left lads!!!

  • mistydrakkar

    To be honest I’m happy about it. In Open Beta not everything was perfect, so they need more time to fix it. Good decision.

    • Maldy

      As far as I know they’ve finished working on the game like 2 weeks ago (now the physical copies are being burned into dvd’s) So I hope that everything is already fixed 🙂

      • Robert

        I’m sure the game is ready, now they’re making us more hungry for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. And I have to admit, they’re doing reat job 😛

        • Maldy

          As far as I know they are actually working on the day one patch. I think that it they are tweaking the optimization at this point

  • Maldy

    They’ve posted this new gameplay recently. It’s probably set to easy mode but the slow motion head shots are so awesome. I really dug it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kp5-9LBG_3U

    • Fatty

      I did see the video you have linked here. I only hope that you will be able to turn blood and gore on so that the heads explode 🙂

      • Gounder

        I think that the heads will explode when you use some special bullets. I like the animation very much. Head is blown into loads of pieces :)))

    • Robert

      Nice one, but I still think the one in the slaughterhouse is the best https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjMIshewXms

      • Maldy

        I don;t know if it’s the best but I really liked the gameplay you have posted. It’s like the first video that was in winter and it was creepy as hell

      • DannyB

        Thank you for reminding me about this gameplay. I think that this is my favourite. I am glad that the game will be so diverse

  • DannyB

    There’s this cool gameplay with Jess Lebow on yt where they play SGW 3 side quests. That’s a little known video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMs03iIn980

    • Noizy Bird

      I wanted to see that mission earlier. I hoiped, that CI Games after so long break will show us how that misisons chagned, but i didnt saw that mission. Even in beta. And now im watching it:) Thanks for sharing!

      • Gounder

        I liked the mission as well as you did. I can’t wait to play it for myself in the final game. I will play it differently

        • Noizy Bird

          Everyone will. Im curious, where helicopter form the end of this mission will take Jon. I dont know if you remember very first gameplay. It was 45 minutes long and ended with scene, where Jon jumps into helicopter. I cant wait to see what will be next:)

    • Robert

      Another great and completely different mission – this is great! I was afraid the game might be boring with only killing different people in different locations, but this isn’t what CIG planned 🙂

      • DannyB

        Sure it won’t be boring! Every side quest is going to be unique. I mean there might be a few that will be similar but you can’t expect anything more from a game like that

    • Robert

      That’s what I wanted to know. I can wait a little longer, I was going to play SP first anyway.

  • Noizy Bird

    I found new trailer that CI Games released yesterday. Its packed with action and…bulletcams! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zq4Gxzge9Fc

    • Robert

      Allright, this one is even better than “Brothers” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nq1_xJfLyKU

      • Maldy

        You are right my good Sir! The new trailer is even better than the last one. It’s awesome to see that every new video is beter than the previous one

      • Noizy Bird

        Thats true. Its better. And im sure, that CI Games will also make such beauties when they will releasing DLCs.

  • Robert

    Now it’s only 9 days, I can make it. I’ve bought preorder, now I have to be patient. I believe my patience will be rewaded with awesome game 🙂

  • Gounder

    Wouldn’t you like to fly this beauty? I only hope that it’s a reasonable quality https://ebgames.com.au/ps4-225514-Sniper-Ghost-Warrior-3—Stealth-Edition-PlayStation-4
