CI Games is currently working on Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, which was due out in January 2017 but was pushed into April 2017 - with the developer noting it needed more time for optimization between the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 versions of the game.


The developer was recently interviewed by WCCFTech, where they were asked about the use of graphics engine in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, where they said they were "using a customized version of the CryEngine and do not plan to use the voxel-based GI solution". As for the resolution and FPS targets on the Xbox One and PS4, the developer noted:

  • PS4: 1080p@30fps
  • XBONE: 900p@30fps

CI Games were asked about their thoughts on the PS4 Pro, and "which enhancements are you planning for this version? Is the Pro console powerful enough to deliver 4K gaming?". They responded: "We are very excited about the possibilities of the PS4 Pro and definitely plan to explore some of the features to deliver a unique experience to the Pro owners, without being unfair towards the PS4 players".

The developer continued, adding: "The PS4 Pro is built to sport 4K gaming and our insights so far prove the power of this technology. We are already looking forward to take all the technological advantages offered by the PS4 Pro into our development of our future games".

They were asked about HDR support, as well as multi-GPU and DX12 support for the PC version of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, where they replied with: "We are planning to offer HDR support for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Yes, we will support multiGPU configs at launch. But due to technical reasons, we will not support DX12".
