All in all, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was met with a successful launch as the latest addition to the long-standing FPS series, at least financially. When the game first launched on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, the reviews were less than flattering due to the bugs the title housed since its release. Despite the negative reception, the shooter still racked in over 1 million units sold. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough.

CI Games Chief Executive Officer Marek Tyminksi had some good news, and bad news, to deliver regarding the studio behind Sniper Ghost Warrior 3:

"Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was the biggest title we've ever developed and published, and despite a middling media reception upon release, we have continued to work hard to improve the game, and have managed to come out relatively successful with this title."

He then added the bad news:

"The decision to downsize the studio was the toughest decision I have taken over the past years—it is never easy to let go of friends and colleagues with whom we've worked for years-however I truly believe that it was the best way to move forward. Quality is not only extremely important to our upcoming tactical shooter, but it is important to every game we will bring to the market. The difficulties we faced during the development and launch of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 were major lessons for us.

We now believe in smaller and leaner development teams when it comes to succeeding in this very competitive industry. At the same time we are proud of our team's efforts and we sincerely want to thank everyone who was part of the journey of developing Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, as without them we could not have even attempted to deliver a AAA-caliber game to players around the world across three platforms."

The team still has the yet to be announced shooter project in the works, as well as continuing to look for a partner regarding Lords of the Fallen 2. For now, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players.
