TVGB: "City Interactive’s Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is targeting sales of 2 million plus."
The first game has sold 1.5 million so far, not even counting the upcoming PS3 version, so that's not an unrealistic number at all, especially considering that the sequel looks a lot more promising. I'm fairly interested myself despite passing on the original. Can always use more stealth in my FPS's, so if the gameplay delivers, I'll pick up a copy.
I'm with you, too many shooters go for the "hollywood" experience. Give me more stealth games.
sequels include: SMG OMG: Gunman Pistol: Cock the Glock Launchers: Rocket Xtreme Shotgun: Sawed off and Pissed Off and a possible throwback to Goldeneye: Hands: Slappers Only on topic: didn't play the first, but this game does intrigue, could get fun, but that's largely dependent on the level design.
So long as they fix the AI so you can actually be stealthy, include co op and make the mp maps way bigger, I'm sold. I like the last one, despite its short comings but with so few maps it got boring quick online.
Is this a trend from Publishers/developers now? They release a statement saying what their projected sales are for a certain game as if to challenge buyers to meet said goal? Didn't the GoW3 designer just say how they wanted 10 million sales? As Principle Skinner once stated "Prove us wrong kids. Prove us wrong."
