CI Games have announced that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, the latest entry in their FPS series, has been delayed by three weeks until April 25th 2017.

After some internal discussion with the development team, a decision was made to delay the release three more weeks to complete some final implementations based on feedback CI Games received during the beta.

“We’ve worked tirelessly creating a whole new Sniper Ghost Warrior experience set in an ambitiously crafted open world new to the series,” said said Marek Tyminski, CEO of CI Games. “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.”

Three weeks isn’t too long a delay, especially compared to other releases that see delays that can last months on end. Gamers won’t have to wait too long to get their sniping fix!
