CI Games has released a new gameplay trailer for the game, and we finally know the release date



Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 will mark the most challenging entry to the series yet. The game will introduce extreme long-range sniping with targets over 1000m away.
Furthermore, it will feature a single-player campaign that will allow players to experience high-pressure tactical combat.

Players will take on the role of Raven, Contract Sniper Assassin, as he embarks on a new series of contracts in a lawless region of the Middle East, located along the Lebanese and Syrian borders.
Tasked with a seemingly impossible task, your mission is to topple an insidious criminal syndicate and bring them to justice.

Key features:
  • Eliminate a wide array of targets, using a mixture of close-quarter combat, and extreme long-range sniping as a contract assassin
  • Employ tactical decisions and stealth techniques to overcome a variety of challenges across the dramatic single-player campaign
  • Explore 5 distinct, extensive maps set in the Middle East conflict zone
  • Execute 20 new contracts, in addition to completing a range of side operations
  • Master an expert sniping experience, featuring a wide selection of authentic weapons and equipment
  • Revisit each contract with a different approach to complete all objectives and collect maximum rewards
  • Experience a new level of fidelity with upgraded visuals and an enhanced game engine

Heres hoping that they pull everything together in this one. This game would be right up my alley but reviews make it sound like there are good elements but it never comes together as a good/satisfying experience.

I haven't played these games before (I have seen plenty of videos), but I'm in need of another FPS game to mess around in. And it's only 40 bucks. Weird to change the release date though. It was just announced for March not too long ago.

I don't know why marketing teams loves to put rap music in trailer for military games.

Who is buying these games?
I just bought the first one (Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts) the other day as I've been going on a bit of a sniper pew pew binge. It was dirt cheap and has gotten plenty of positive reviews so I figured why not?

These definitely aren't games that I'd get day one but budget bin (or lower) for sure.

I started Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 last week, as got it for like $5 US off the Playstation store, for my PS5 (PS4 game though), and it's incredible.

First time playing this series, and never knew it was this good. Environment is amazing. Great AI. Enemy is very good at tracking you down and killing you, unless you use lots of stealth (either long range with silencer or sneaking). Go in guns blazing, and you will die.

Love the use of the drone to scout out an area, and mark your targets.

Great exploring buildings with tons of rooms. Very well realized world. Surprised how big the map is! Never expected that for some reason. Very complex environments.

One of the best games played in a long time. I'm going to pickup Ghost Warrior Contracts 1 and 2 at some point.

Didn't think this would be better than the excellent Sniper Elite 4, but I think it is.

First game that uses CryEngine that impresses me.

Almost did not get this, because of the mixed score/reviews on metacritic. But I said for $5 US ($6.41 CDN), why not. First couple hours regretted my purchase, but after that, realized what an incredible deal I got.

It's 30 fps only, and really felt it at first, since getting used to 60 fps now on PS5, but after playing it awhile, I'm getting used to the 30 fps. Some small annoying bugs from time to time, and some textures could be better. Windows don't break which is weird (but can fire through them as if they weren't there). Long range view through the scope is excellent! Got a 500 meter + kill last night. :) Also, field of view seems a tad small (hated that at first), but got used to it. Expect that to be fixed on the Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 PS5 version (hoping it's more than just a PS4 port).

We played Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 and found the mix of tried and true military shooter mechanics and open-ended assassination goals made a solid first impression as it tests your creativity and timing, a la Hitman.

I really hope the Remote Turret is brought back. That thing is amazingly fun to use.

CI Games has decided to give away for free the fist DLC because the game has been delayed on PS5.

CI Games announced today that it will provide the first major DLC release free of charge to all owners of Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2.
This first DLC will feature a new and extensive map complete with brand new contracts.

Goddamnit. I wonder what the "unforeseen issue" is with the PS5 version. I'm just going to wait for that version.
