Sniper: Ghost Warrior is getting a sequel, despite the first one being absolutely dreadful.
For some reason (possibly due to its generic macho name), the game sold ludicrous amounts of copies in the United Kingdom, getting into the charts and staying there for quite a while. Of course, we don't know how many gamers swiftly returned the awful game, but those first sales are what count, and so we have a sequel.
City Interactive will be using CryEngine 3 and aims to bring the game to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The first game is currently awaiting a PS3 port in February, which will arrive with a number of fixes to the original code. Whether those fixes make the thing playable remains to be seen.
This is a sad day for videogames.
