CI Games has announced today that the PS5 version of its highly anticipated game, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, will be delayed due to unforeseen technical issues discovered in the weeks leading up to launch.
This will not affect launch dates on the other announced platforms — the game is still set to launch as planned on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox X/S, and PC on June 4. CI Games is very confident with how the game performs on these other platforms and has a highly experienced team working hard to ensure the PS5 version meets a similarly high standard.
As a gesture of goodwill in light of this news, CI Games has made the decision to provide the first major DLC release (a new and extensive map complete with brand new contracts) free of charge to the entire player base across all versions, including PS5, PS4, Xbox X/S, Xbox One, and PC. It is currently in development, with more news on the DLC release coming soon.
“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 caliber 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
