Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 aims for August 21

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has been laying in wait for just the right moment, watching the wind speed, and has finally decided on a release target. City Interactive announced today that the brain matter dispersal simulator will release on August 21, nestled snugly between the light and breezy summer period and the autumn glut of new releases.

The game relies on CryEngine 3, and offers some beautifully gruesome shots thanks to it. This sequel promises more diverse challenges, a new AI system, and the continued, sniper-centric theme of taking out enemies with one well-placed bullet. It's launching for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 simultaneously. Check out our recent preview for more information.
