Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 Gets A PS5 Release Date

CI Games announced this week when we'll be seeing Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 on the PS5, and it's sooner than you think. The game was originally delayed for the PS5 back in May when the team revealed that due to "unforeseen technical difficulties", it wouldn't make the June 4th release on the console. Now we know the game will drop onto the console on August 24th, along with a few enhancements that players will get due to the delay including improved SSD loading times, upgraded textures and visuals, and the ability to play in either performance mode (60fps, 2K) or visual mode (30fps, 4K). You can check out how it looks below with the latest trailer.
