Developer CI Games has announced today that their game Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has been delayed. The game was originally scheduled to launch in January 2017, but has now been pushed back to April 4, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.


CI Games says this gives the team a lot more time for polish and perfection. The game is supposed to be open-world as opposed to the linear gameplay of its predecessors. So it’s understandable for the team to spend more time on a bigger project to “polish and further optimize” the game. CEO of CI Games released this statement today on the subject:

“We’re making an ambitious game and unfortunately still need an extra few months to make sure it will stand up to the expectations of the fans. Our goal is to ensure Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 runs smoothly on all platforms, and right now we still have some important work left on optimizing the game. This is our biggest project we’ve ever worked on and the entire team is pushing really hard to make the entire experience more polished,” he added. “I really hope everyone will understand our decision and will wait the extra time to play something we’re excited about, and that will redefine our IP and the sniping genre as a whole. This is a new beginning for the Sniper: Ghost Warrior series.”

In the game you play as Johnathan North, an American sniper. You’re located in Georgia, right near the Russian border. You have one mission: find your brother. The game will feature an open-world with dynamic weather and day-night cycles.

Again, the game comes out now on April 4, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
