Put away your telescopic sights and holster your sidearms; Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has been delayed three weeks to April 25th, 2017.
Citing feedback from the Beta, Marek Tyminski, CEO of developer CI Games, said that “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.”
A reasonable approach, if anything. This brings to mind one of Shigeru Miyamoto’s more infamous quotes: “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.” We’ll see if this holds true for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 on April 25th.
