Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is currently in development for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, CI Games has announced.
The latest entry in the stealthy shooter series looks set to shake things up a bit with the introduction of the titular Contracts system. Here, players engage in mission-based scenarios that pull back from the massive open-world nature of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, with fixed monetary rewards up for grabs.
While you'll have a primary objective to set your sights on, budding sharp shooters can also tackle secondary objectives to rake in even more cash. Contracts still features the same tactical sniping antics as before, but offers 'dense, more focused maps' to play on.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will take place in the Siberian wilderness, and offers both single-player and multiplayer experiences.
'It is exciting to see the team really motivated and working hard on our next sniping game,' commented Marek TymiÅ„ski, CEO of CI Games. 'They don’t have to start from scratch this time and can now – on top of developing new content – spend way more time on improving things they already have.'
'We were too ambitious in terms of the scope of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, but we’ve learned from our missteps. Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will be more focused on emergent gameplay with an open-ended mission design that the team feels strong about, but it will not be set in an open world. It is going to be a more tactical, more condensed experience and the game will offer plenty of replayability, both on the single player campaign and on the multiplayer modes.'
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is due out in 2019.
