If there's one thing that most gamers can agree on, it's that when it comes to shooters you just can't beat a sniper rifle. There's nothing quite as satisfying as lying in wait for your poor unsuspecting victim before gently squeezing the trigger and unleashing holy hell upon the poor soul who's walked into your sights.

To base an entire game around the sniper dynamic is always going to be a big risk, but Polish developers CI Games seem fairly confident that the upcoming Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is going to satisfy fans of the old series as well as newcomers to the game, and have officially announced that the development cycle is over. The game will be released on March 15th in the EU for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
