We?re closing in on the half of their release window, but no recent major announcements have come out regarding the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 from CI Games. Here?s what we know so far about the game.
CI Games has confirmed through Eurogamer that fans can expect the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 release date in the first half of 2016. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a first-person shooter that focuses on stealth and sniper realism to distinguish itself from the usual action-heavy, faster-paced Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises. The game focuses on realism, so quickscoping is not recommended.
According to its official site, the player character will be forced to be ?more? than a Sniper, a Ghost and a Warrior to adapt to the mission he?s been given. The Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 protagonist is confirmed to be illegally deep within enemy lines with ample tools and no government support. The player will be responsible for planning the mission, from entering enemy bases to leaving the scene once the job is done.
It?s definitely a treat for players who prefer stealthy shooters, but there are currently few updates about the game. According to Reddit user pixelpositive, the game didn?t show up on Gamescom and does not have any new gameplay footage elsewhere. This claim is supported when you look at the official YouTube channel where the last video about the game was posted seven months ago.

However, the studio did not show signs of abandoning the project as it mentioned the development of the game in a Twitter post in January, although it did not reveal the actual progress of the game. Their official Facebook page is still active but only announces Sniper trivia and games rather than an official gameplay in the first few months of 2016.
At this rate, the developer may either surprise us with a full-release game that?s ready to be bought or a postponed release of the title if it?s still not finished after June. Stay updated with Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 news here on TheBitBag.
