PlayStation fans of the tactical shooting Sniper Ghost Warrior games will have to wait just a bit longer for the next installment in the series, as CI Games has announced that Sniper Ghost Warror Contracts 2 PS5 version has been delayed — offering the first DLC map free of charge to everyone as a way to make up for that.

Here’s the whole explanation from the team on why they had to make the tough call to delay.

“We could not have foreseen these issues. However, we would like to assure our players that our highly experienced, professional and dedicated team are working hard with the platform holder and engine provider to resolve the problems as soon as feasibly possible, to ensure we can bring the PS5 community the high calibre sniping game they have been waiting for. We will offer a free digital upgrade to the PS5 version with all physical and digital purchases of the PS4 release.” – Tobias Heussner, EP, CI Games
As a way to apologize for this delay, CI Games has decided to make the first major DLC release for the game free across all versions — complete with extensive contracts and a new extensive map. Details on that will be coming soon as well.
Again while the PS5 port for Sniper Ghost Warrior Contacts 2 will be delayed, the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions will still make their June 4 release date.
