'Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2' (ALL) Delayed On PS5 Due To Technical Issues

by Rainier on May 7, 2021 @ 8:45 a.m. PDT

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 will be set in modern-day with more game details being revealed in the coming months.

The most realistic and challenging sniping experience returns with Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 introducing precision long-range sniping over extreme distances to deliver the most engaging and robust single-player campaigns available in the genre.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 features a more grounded and relevant experience set in modern day 2021 Middle East. As contract sniper assassin Raven, players will utilize authentic gear and weaponry across large-scale sandbox maps as they track and eliminate targets using a variety of approaches.

In addition to the core contracts, these campaigns are hand-crafted to provide engaging and robust gameplay over extreme distances. These maps will challenge even the most skilled snipers as players complete complex challenges undetected from over a kilometer away.

CI Games announced that the PS5 version of Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 game is being delayed due to unforeseen technical issues discovered in the weeks leading up to its launch.

This will not affect launch dates on the other announced platforms — the game is still set to launch as planned on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox X/S and PC on June 4.  CI Games is very confident with how the game performs on these other platforms and has a highly experienced team working hard to ensure the PS5 version meets a similarly high standard.  

As a gesture of goodwill in light of this news, CI Games has made the decision to provide the first major DLC release  (a new and extensive map complete with brand new contracts) free of charge to the entire player base across all versions, including PS5, PS4, Xbox X/S, Xbox One and PC. It is currently in development, with more news on the DLC release coming soon. 

Additionally, both the digital and physical PS4 iterations will launch with a free digital upgrade to the PS5 version, ready to download upon its release, to ensure PS5 players can still purchase and play the game on 4th June 2021. Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 will benefit from native 4k resolution, enhanced textures and visuals, and faster SSD loading times, on Next Generation consoles. 

“We couldn't have foreseen these difficulties. However, we want to assure our players that our experienced, professional and dedicated team is working hard with the platform owner and engine provider to resolve the issues as quickly as possible and to ensure that we deliver the high profile sniping experience to the PS5 community what you've been waiting for. We are offering all buyers of the PS4 version a free digital upgrade to the PS5 version. ” - Tobias Heussner, Executive Producer for Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 at CI Games
