Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Delayed Again

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has suffered a further delay.

Originally intended for an August release, the sniper sequel was recently held back until October. It has now slipped to next year. January 15th to be precise.

"I can confirm that this is true," said Namco Bandai Partners UK marketing and PR director Lee Kirton. "We will provide a full announcement with City Interactive soon.

"It's key we all want this title to be fantastic in the genre and the leading SNIPER game for sure. The engine is fantastic and the level of polish is also key to the title's success. As soon as the official announcement through distributors is available I will provide it."

City Interactive has also confirmed the news via their official website. The move will see the game avoid several big hitters including Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Halo 4. Makes sense.

Pretty sure that's the guys going "maybe we shouldn't release this at the same time as Medal of Honor and Call of Duty"

Probably good idea it releasing January next year so to avoid all the big game titles

'to be fantastic in the genre and the leading SNIPER game for sure.'

Are there any other contemporary games that focus on sniper action? I can't think of one...

hopefully this is the result of proper testing this time around (although i do agree that MOH and blops2 dropping around the same time is also a factor)

while the first game was good, it was plagued by single player and terrible trophy glitches, and the online was unplayable (people couldn't even connect)until they patched it,but even then it was unstable.

if CI can iron these issues out this time around this has the potential to be a good game.

A delayed Sniper: Ghost Warrior game? This sounds familiar, lol. Looking forward to it whenever it releases. =)

Next year release is a smart move because against the likes of Halo 4, MoH and Black Ops 2 this game would make next to no sales at all.

That said, I still don't think it will sell that well unless the game has been made into a completely different prospect than the dismal effort that was the first Sniper: Ghost Warrior.
