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.

"It's key we all want this title to be fantastic in the genre and the leading SNIPER game for sure."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but unless it's worse than the previous game, doesn't it get to be the leading SNIPER game by default?

Silly marketing speak.

Unless that's a misquote, and he meant the leading sniper game - as in, the leading title among all sniping games, rather than the leading game in the SNIPER franchise.

However, if that's true, unless it's worse than the previous game, doesn't it get to be the leading sniping game by default?

Wow, a sniping game. Sounds even less fun than sniping in any other FPS.

Ghost Warrior 1 sucked, a lot. I don't expect this one to be much better. I highly doubt they will be anywhere near as good as Sniper Elite v2

Is the move designed to place this after all the big titles, or because they actually want more time to polish it? I've been expecting another delay for this game, I'll probably still be getting it though.

That's good because first one is awful so my bet 2nd one will be much and much better.

Plenty games come out before 2013 like Sleeping Dogs, Halo 4, Pikmin 3 (Wii U), New Super Mario Bros. (Wii U), Darksiders II, Sly 4 (PS3), Doom 3: BFG Edition, Borderlands 2, ZombiU (Wii U), COD Black Ops 2(just achievements and play with friends), Medal of Honor: Warifghter, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Assassin's Creed III, Hitman: Absolution, Dead or Alive 4, Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked and new Ratchet & Clank game (both for PSN), Deadlight for XBLA (out next week) and load, load more.

So that ok with me for some delays to 2013. :)

its good that they are tweaking it making it the best they possibly can, looks great now nevermind in a few months time

and...#6 saying what you want and are aiming for is not default, unless you have been misquoted it doesn't make sense

Saw this coming a mile off, when they shifted the release to October the community pretty much all knew it wouldn't survive against the heavy AAA hitters, thankfully the marketing monkeys they employ learned this too.
