Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 now set for October

Sequel to successful shooter sets aim for Autumn.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is coming for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on 9th October rather than the previously believed 21st August release date, UK distributor Namco Bandai has confirmed to us.

City Interactive's first Sniper: Ghost Warrior went on to sell over two million copies, despite receiving a critical drubbing.

Our own Dan Whitehead scored it a 2/10 in his review stating, "By favouring tired run-and-gun scenarios over actual sniping gameplay, you're left with a technically inept entry in the most over-populated gaming genre around. Show some mercy, put one in the back of its head, and leave it for the vultures."

Martin Robinson seemed more optimistic about its sequel, though.

"This time out it seems that it'll be the good kind of derivative, a shooter that peddles genre clichés with a big daft smile and that greets every headshot with a knowing wink. It's an unashamedly dumb game, and it looks to be all the better for it," he wrote in his preview.
