The game was at first set for a release on August 21, 2012. Namco later however, announced a slight delay and pushed the game back to the 9th of October.
Today a new and hopefully final release date has been announced for the game. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 will now release on January 15, 2013.
Namco Bandai explained that good polishing is the key to a title’s success. That may be true but others are saying that the delay probably was because of other major titles which were releasing at the same time; Dishonored and Resident Evil 6.
