CI Games plans to improve the performance of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3

Marek Tyminski, the CEO of CI Games, has announced that the company now plans to improve the performance of Sniper: Ghost Warrior  3 on all platforms, putting any plans to produce post-launch content on hold. 
When the game launched last week the game was plagued by reports of framerate issues on PS4, Xbox One and PC, as well as reports of excessively long load times. Now CI Games has confirmed that they have staff working on both framerate and loading issues and that they will not release any new content for the game until they have made "proper headway" has been made in regards to game performance. 
Below is Marek Tyminski's full statement; 

First off, we’d like to thank everyone who has supported us in our endeavor to make the best sniper experience possible. It takes a huge amount of effort in order to make a game on the scale of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, and we’re committed to making the game even better as we continue to support this past release.

The game is being received well in the market and we are collecting valuable feedback from players and are actively taking steps to make sure that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is even better moving forward. So, I wanted to explain what our plans are in support for the game:

  1. Before we release any more content for the game, we have dedicated staff working diligently to further optimize Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 to ensure fewer issues with framerate and loading times.

  1. Only once we feel that proper headway has been made on the system performance, will we begin adding extras such as the much-requested multiplayer component.

We’re 100% committed to making the best game we can. Thanks again to all of the people who have supported us so far. We couldn’t have done this without you.

Right now many people are blaming Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3's use of CryEngine on the game's poor performance, though it is clear that with other recently released products like Arkane's Prey Demo that CryEngine is capable of great performance and visuals on console hardware. 

Let's hope that these upcoming performance optimisations will be just as effective on PC as on consoles, as gamers deserve stable framerates regardless of their chosen platform.

Been looking forward to this one forever, being a sniper fan and all, but so disappointed by trusted reviews! The worst of all; targets disappear completely at moderate range...in a sniper game ffs! Unacceptable. I'm holding off indefinitely to see where this fixing is going.Quote

I think the games quite good I only paid £22, most of the missions once you get past the first chapter are really fun, ive only had the disappearing targets at distance once, and i think it was intentional to stop you from "cheating" the mission. performance wise im getting 50fps at high settings at 1440p with a 290, so youl tank it with a 1080. By all means hold out buying it but the game is more than playable at the moment so any improvement is a bonus for me.Quote

Thanks for the info mate, appreciate it! The disappearing targets were in PS 4 though as tested by euro gamer. Ian made a video about it.Quote
