Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 had initially been slated for an August 2012 release, before being delayed into October. Subsequently, City Interactive's snipe 'em up sequel was pencilled in for January 15th, 2013, and now it's been re-dated once again, this time into March 2013.

A statement regarding the date was posted by City Interactive, and picked up by Eurogamer Poland.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 will be setting its sights on a March 12th, 2013 release according to the statement. Hopefully, that date will be set in stone and won't change. Hopefully.

Played the first one, pretty glitchy, laggy and that stuff......

This will suck too I think (no hate, just saying).

so thye have moved it into a slot where games like dead space 3, bioshock infinite, and aliens colonial miarines are more or less out at the same time, they should have stuck with the january 15th date instead.

sorry about the spelling in the post above, why there isn't an edit function is strange.

@3, DS3 (2/5), Aliens (2/12), Bioshock (3/26).

Shouldn't be an issue knocking out the 1st two before Sniper's release date. Unfortunately, I see the attention diverted to Bioshock if Sniper has more time consuming m/p cheevo(s).

When a game is delayed, the devs / publishers should look at a release calendar first so they don't kill the game on launch. Look for the open window where your game has little / no competition.

I have a feeling this game will flop. They have pushed back the release date numerous times... but, hey, I haven't played the game, so what do I know?

There must be some serious problems with this game for it to be delayed for so long. I was really hyped for the first one but it was a let down. I'll rent this one and if I like it I'll buy it.

You have to wander if the game is going to be any good. Considering it's being sold for around £25 new at most places, the publishers probably don't have much faith in it, like SEGA with Anarchy Reigns.

constantly delays and cheap pre-orders point to this being a terrible game.

@10 Well said Frank :-p

Just because they have a shiny Cry Engine doesn't mean the game will be good. This might be something I would rent, but a purchase does not seem likely unless it gets good reviews.

Have had this on pre order for ages liked the original despite it being a bit buggy. But to change the release from Jan where there is very little out to a week after tomb raider and a few weeks before bioshock is gona cost them sales. Pre order cancelled.

Bad move, Namco Bandai Games. Just release it this month because not much games just DmC this month so made sense bring this in this month. March 2013? Oh well I am expect good sells for one week then Gears of War, Army of Two and BioShock will killing it. :)

Should release it this month and they can patches some bugs. Simply!!!

Look at Inversion released last year and Namco Bandai Games delayed it lots and then game came with awful gameplay and story. Oh my god MP in it is almost no one played it. I knew SNiper GW 2 will be good sells because it is FPS with snipes but March 2013 is bad. Could put it in April 2013 because less games release over there or just bring it this month then patches if problems. Lol

I want this game lots because achievements. Hahahaha anyway first series is one of worst games in history. Dunno how could I saying about 2nd one.
