Extra few months are needed to meet expectations.
CI Games’ Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has been delayed. It will no longer be releasing in January 2017 but on April 4th 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
As per CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski, this was done to ensure more time for polish. In a recent statement, Tyminski stated that, “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.”
The game’s open world nature has also contributed to the overall size and scale of 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. 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.”
