The Delay Bug Strikes Again; Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Pushed Back to April


The current running joke on all the titles being delayed this year is simply to easy to take advantage of. So we won’t. CI Games announced today that the latest Sniper: Ghost Warrior title will be pushed back to April 4th, 2017. The official reason was to further polish and optimization.

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,” said Marek Tymiński, CEO of CI Games. “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. 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.”

There were also mentions that the delay was equally based on fan feedback and testing. Are you disappointed about another delay? Let us know down in the comments below.

    Its no so happy news, but when developer need time to polish his own game its necessary to take all the risk and delay release. If he didnt take this risk, we would get proboly glitchy game. And we dont want this.

      Yup, a delayed game is always better than a messed up one. Somebody needs to tell Warner Bros… ahem, Batman: Return to Arkham….

    Good words. Warner Bros relased another broken Batman. Why they let someone to ruin what Rocksteady done? Both previous Arkhams were great games. Arkham Knight i havent play yet, but soon i will play the last chapter of Arkham trilogy. What goes to Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, like Chris sad: better delay than messed game.

      Who likes delays? No one, but if someone can make you happy with that,it must be CI Games. They gave us another reason to be patient. This gameplay shows progress and also few tricks that can help in almost every situation ihn this game. Thanks for sharing.

      Watching movie wihtout worry would be nice, but someone just made it private:/ And things goes harder. But with some luck, i’ve found new movie or should i say new link:

      • Lauders

        10th November 2016 at 8:42 pm

        Thanks for sharing this movie. I doubted, that i ever wil see that gameplay. I saw thet i im real curious what CI Games will show next. Maybe some car chase action movie? I dont know, but im patiently wait for next one.

        Such a good reflex:) I dont know why people make such things, but who cares? important fact is, that we have link to a working movie and can see how Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 grew. I think, that in sometimes grapchis nieeds little polish. It looks too plastic for me, but i think, that they know that and make it more beautiful.

    CEO Marek Tyminski sad, that problems with console version were reason to push back premiere to april. Now they working on the dobule to resolve these problems. And what ive heard, they will be showing playable version of SGW3 for PS4 on PSE. So is this a beginning of a era without problems on consoles?

    • Ideaz

      11th November 2016 at 12:43 pm

      All suggest, that they fixed what was wrong with console version,Now CI Games has option to show fans not only working title on XboX One, PC but also on PS4. This is good news. Now i expect comparision movie or screenshots.

  5. HiFi

    19th November 2016 at 10:51 pm

    Maybe we will get such comparing movie, but not so quick. More important thing is, that CI Games will equpi SGW3 in multiplayer. That said CEO Marek Tyminski, so check out the source:

      Nice digging. Thanks for sharing with thi interview. I hope that this multiplayer will be better than in SGW2, where many players were camping and done nothing. But time will show how they decidedes to resovle this problem.

    20th November 2016 at 3:13 pm

    thanks for sharing with this interview. We can read that there will be MP with two modes: deathmatch and something unique. Im wonder, when they release mor infomartions about that mode.

  7. Ajax

    26th November 2016 at 8:31 pm

    Now i woudlnt count on infos about scret mode in MP, but hope dies last:) From that time there was also one interview, where w e can find about map size and total time that we spend in game.

  8. Barthezz

    26th November 2016 at 10:37 pm

    Good, that someone put the working link in to action. I was reading this interview and many user that have high endt stations can use many graphics configuration and console fans will have stable [i think] 30fps. Thats good result. Im wonder how CI Games will use PS4 Pro power?

  9. Felix

    27th November 2016 at 12:04 am

    Thats a good question. CI Games is exited about that console, but they very cautious about telling something. I think that they will make better textures and add some AA to the game. Thats just my guess.

    I wish that CI Games make a good use of tuned PS4. I dont want to see upscaled 4K. I will be happy to see game runs smoothly on 1080/30 or 1080/60 in SP and MP mode. I think, that this result is achiveable.

  11. Felix

    3rd December 2016 at 12:00 am

    On previous generations stadard was 720p. This should run smooth on 1080. I think, that CI Games will make some magic and show us how they overtook problems with consoles and game will be well optimized. I think, that many problems was also resolved under MP mode on the horizont.

    There are stuiods, that canc reate masterpeace on any resolutions and on any hardware. On PS3 there was ND with TLoU or Uncharted series. Everything runned smoothly on 720p. On PS4 its also Naught Dog with Uncharted 4. CI Games apperance on PS3 was Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 and it looked not bad, but not so good. After screens, movies and everyhting that i saw live i can say, that they did thier homwork and this game looks great on any platform.

    3rd December 2016 at 1:25 pm

    Naughty Dog team are wiazdrs, and they can do magic. But many studios has talented people and everything deppends on time. Now everyone want to have everything done quick. But when it comes to quality it just need time. Those people: in CI Games, ND, Ubi they just need time to polish game. I think, that this chagne of premiere time is made just to make game better. So i dont think, that there will be trouble with full hd graphics.

      • Shifty

        10th December 2016 at 12:20 am

        I like to cammpre. I know, that this location were earlier on longplays, but now is different. They are in full sun and i can search for graphical bugs and detail, that could be done better;P But im still interested in this game, so i’ll be waiting for more of course:)

    After interviews, we can see something with ours own eyes. They put many effort in to making this world. Its big and have many secrets, but still, they need polish this before releasing.

  17. Greg

    10th December 2016 at 10:00 am

    They put many hours into this game and still many houre left to polish game. Many artists is try the best to make this game look very good. Its hard task, but they know what they do. Im glad, that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will using addiditonal PS4 power.

  18. Zool

    10th December 2016 at 12:10 pm

    How good those hours was spend we will see after release. For now SGW3 looks quite good with some detail to improve. For now, im wiating for new interviews or movies, that will show how this game runs on PS4.
