CI Games has announced that the release date of the Playstation 5 version of the highly anticipated Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 has been delayed due to unforeseen issues of a technical nature. This delay has no impact on the release date for the other platforms and it will release on 4th June as planned.
Despite the delayed release date, there is good news for all those who buy the game as CI Games have very kindly made the decision to provide the first major DLC release, which consists of a new extensive map and new contracts, completely free of charge. Plus, to ensure PS5 players aren’t left out on 4th June, both the digital and physical PS4 versions will launch with a free digital upgrade to the PS5 version.
“We could not have foreseen these issues. However, we would like to assure our players that our highly experienced, professional and dedicated team are working hard with the platform holder and engine provider to resolve the problems as soon as feasibly possible, to ensure we can bring the PS5 community the high calibre sniping game they have been waiting for. We will offer a free digital upgrade to the PS5 version with all physical and digital purchases of the PS4 release.” – Tobias Heussner, EP, CI Games
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 arrives on 4th June on PS4, Xbox One, Series X/S and PC. Pre-orders are available for all platforms. An update on the new PS5 release date will be announced in the near future.
