City Interactive has announced Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, which will serve as a third entry in the franchise, and will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the first quarter of 2016.
The game is set in modern day during an Eastern Europe conflict, as players are drawn into a war between three factions.
Developers have assured that the gameplay will be non-linear and open ended. Players will be able to move around at will and will be able to complete the missions in different ways.
Accompanying the announcement is a statement from the CEO of CI Games, Marek Tymins who seems pretty excited about the upcoming project.
The Sniper: Ghost Warrior franchise is one of the most popular in the CI Games portfolio with over 5.5 million copies sold, so we’re investing a significant amount of effort into the third installment. We’re fully committed to creating a AAA franchise that gamers can rely on for the ultimate first-person sniper experience.
The developers have been improving their games steadily. The second installment in the series, Ghost Warrior 2 was way better than the original, and the recently launched Lords of the Fallen got a pretty decent reception as well.
We hope that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will be able to give us the sniper experience that other mainstream shooters have been unable to deliver.
