The strong results came within seven months of the game’s official launch and bodes well for the upcoming introduction of the PlayStation 3 version. New promotions and lifecycle pricing for the game are in place to continue the robust sales of the current SKUs.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior for PlayStation 3 version combines elements from its best-selling predecessors and adds a multitude of extras exclusive to the PS3 platform.
“A lot of hard work and dedication by the entire City Interactive team went into the development of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, so we are understandably pleased about the worldwide success of the game,” said Marek Tyminski, CEO of City Interactive. “This success is the perfect backdrop to reveal details about some of the fantastic games that we currently have in our development pipeline, including the sequel to Sniper: Ghost Warrior and a couple of unannounced projects.”
The City Interactive team began working on the sequel to Sniper: Ghost Warrior back in early 2010, and has licensed the CryEngine3 game engine, one of the world’s leading and most state-of-the-art game development tools. To capitalize on this opportunity, City Interactive has significantly expanded and strengthened the game’s development team, and invited some of the world’s most renowned outsourcing studios to collaborate.
