Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Announced, Coming 2016

City Interactive Games have announced Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 for release in the first-half of 2016. The game will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Steve Hart, the senior producer of Sniper Elite V2 has been brought on board to help with development.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 takes place in Eastern Europe where you, as a sniper, are caught between three warring factions. Levels will be designed to offer a non-linear approach to gameplay. Utilize stealth to assassinate targets, or perform a full-on assault, the choice is yours.

“The Sniper: Ghost Warrior franchise is one of the most popular in the CI Games portfolio with over 5.5 million copies sold, so we’re investing a significant amount of effort into the third instalment,” said CI Games CEO, Marek Tyminski. “We’re fully committed to creating a AAA franchise that gamers can rely on for the ultimate first-person sniper experience.”

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is the third entry in the franchise. The previous games garnered lukewarm critical response. Hopefully third time’s the charm for CI Games.
