Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 takes aim at March release date

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, the sequel to the surprise 2010 FPS hit, finally has a firm release date in its crosshairs and it's not too far off. March 12th is the date in question, when the game will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The original game was a staggered release, and only reached the PS3 at the end of April 2011.

In the follow-up, you'll take control of Cole Anderson, a private military contractor, as he engages in conflicts in the war torn streets of Sarajevo, the jungles of Burma and the mountains of Tibet. As with the first game, those sniper shots will be complicated by realistic bullet physics that mean you must take wind and gravity into account when pulling the trigger.

Ghost Warrior 2 is once again developed by City Interactive, though this time out the developer is ditching its own Chrome 4 engine in favour of CryEngine 3, which also powers the upcoming AAA benchmark shooter Crysis 3. Namco Bandai has stepped in to publish the game in Europe.

That date again - Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is out for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC from March 12th.
