After reports earlier in the month that Namco Bandai would delay the game until October Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 has taken another hit.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 will now release on January 15th 2013 in the UK.
This set back comes due to claims that the game needs to be polished more to make it better.
“I can confirm that this is true,” Namco Bandai Partners UK marketing and PR director Lee Kirton said “We will provide a full announcement with City Interactive soon.
“It’s key we all want this title to be fantastic in the genre and the leading SNIPER game for sure. The engine is fantastic and the level of polish is also key to the title’s success. As soon as the official announcement through distributors is available I will provide it.”
The developers City Interactive also confirmed the news on their website.
Although claims of polish seem reasonable it would seem more likely that an October release would struggle against the big titles coming the end of the year.
