The PS5 version of Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, originally scheduled for June 4th, has now been delayed due to technical issues. The game's first major DLC will instead be free as a gesture of goodwill.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 PS5 release date

Over on Twitter, CI Games says the delay is due to "unforeseen technical issues." Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 will still launch as planned on June 4th for PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. We don't yet have a new release date for the PS5 version, but CI Games reminds players that the PS4 edition includes a free upgrade to the PS5 version.

As a result of this news, CI Games has confirmed that the first major DLC, which includes "a new and extensive region complete with brand new contracts," will now be free across all versions of the game. "Once again, we would like to sincerely apologise for the delay," CI Games concludes, "and assure you, our valued community, that we are doing everything to resolve it as soon as feasibly possible, but with equal consideration for our already hard-working team." We'll update you when the devs share a new release date for the PS5 version.

I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
