A bit of a surprise announcement from CI Games this morning as the company announced Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2. Considering the last game only came out back in November 2019, we expected to be waiting just a hair longer than now to see a sequel. But today the company released the art you see below along with the little bit of info you see here, as well as a link to the website which just shows the same image.
CI Games is proud to announce Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 will release Fall 2020. In the first Contracts, the CI team delivered a well-received experience built upon a new gameplay system that placed players in open-ended sandboxes designed to be a sniper's paradise. Building on this success, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 will be set in modern-day with more game details being revealed in the coming months.
For a game that's being teased as coming out later this year, the devs sure don't have a lot to show off. The game doesn't even have a Steam page for reference as of this post, which games of this nature usually secure before they make these types of announcements. Right now, if we had to make a guess, we'd say CI took everything from the last game and have slapped a new skin on it with some additional content and a few improvements to get something going this soon. Anything of a substantial improvement would have had to be in the works while they were preparing the first game, so it would only make sense they're using the previous engine and mechanics to get a sequel up and running as quickly as possible. Here's hoping the next update gives us much more info and a proper release date.
