Wednesday, 16th February 2011 17:06 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

City Interactive has announced that a million copies of its PC and 360 shooter, Sniper: Ghost Warrior, have been sold within seven months.

“A lot of hard work and dedication by the entire City Interactive team went into the development of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, so we are understandably pleased about the worldwide success of the game,” said Marek Tymiński, CEO of City Interactive in a press release.

“This success is the perfect backdrop to reveal details about some of the fantastic games that we currently have in our development pipeline, including the sequel to Sniper: Ghost Warrior and a couple of unannounced projects.”

The PS3 version of the game is slated for release in March, and it will feature updated graphics, along with exclusive additions for both the single player multiplayer campaigns. New guns and maps are expected as well.

    cant believe this, one of the worst games ive played in the past 5 years. shows that if you stick the word sniper on something it will get eaten up.

    fair play though

    No offence to the Dev’s, I’m happy for them but it really seems unjust that this breaks a million and Enslaved only sells 300k.

    Very sad.

    I guess you can sell anything by slapping “Sniper” onto the box.

    @12, amazing name.

    How the hell did this happen? It got terrible reviews if I remember correctly?

    Goes to show the power of MUMS buying games that kids don’t really want because it has a cool name + picture. lol
