Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 delayed to October

Namco Bandai confirms shooter sequel will miss previously targeted August launch

The UK release of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has been delayed from its previously announced August 21 launch date to October 9.


Publisher Namco Bandai confirmed the news to Eurogamer, but gave no reason for the delay to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sequel.

The original Sniper: Ghost Warrior was poorly received, the PC version earning the highest average reviews with a Metascore of 55, but Xbox World previewed the sequel a couple of months ago and came away suitably impressed.

"With a range of accurately modelled sniper rifles (the Remington MSR, the Barrett Xm500 and the Accuracy International 50 to name a few), an addictive bullet cam rewarding perfect shots, and the use of CryEngine 3, Ghost Warrior 2 has a chance to knock the next CoD off its pedestal. From a couple of miles away," the mag said in its Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 preview.
