City Interactive’s self developed and published title ‘Sniper Ghost Warrior’, has reached a new milestone in it’s successful lifespan – the game has achieved sales that have now exceeded 2,000,000 units worldwide.
The new sales figures mark the culmination of a stunning year for City Interactive, who, in addition to the development of the recently announced WWII FPS Enemy Front, and the impending release of Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII, is now equally busy prepping the much-expanded sequel – Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 – for 2012 launch.
Sniper Ghost Warrior is set on the fictitious South American island of Isla Trueno, where a despotic military regime lead by the ruthless General Vasquez has overthrown its democratic government to seize control. As one of a group of covert commandos, the player is charged with infiltrating the rebel stronghold and overthrowing the unelected powerbase. Intelligence reports indicate that Vasquez is due to chair a meeting with his cohorts in an old refinery facility, and a government plant is in place to set up an assassination opportunity for the crack unit. But as the unit arrive on the island, it soon becomes clear that the plan has gone awry, and the team must adapt and use their combat skills if they are to complete the mission.
Hopefully more news on the sequel, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 will reach us shortly…
