One of the most certain ways of knowing if a game is coming out and on what system, is to check the ESRB ratings for it. Since every retail game must be rated before hitting the store shelves, and since that information is publicly available, it’s easy to check what games will be coming out on what systems. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has just been rated by the ESRB for the Wii U. The game will also be coming to the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 15th, 2013. We can now add the Wii U to that list.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is a stealth action game that’s built on the CryEngine 3. A few months ago, developer Crytek said that there was already a CryEngine 3 Wii U game in development, and this could very well be that game. Crytek later informed that several developers have now licensed the engine for the Wii U platform. Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is a first person shooter that relies on stealth and realistic sniping situations, where factors like wind, distance, and bullet drop affect the gameplay. It’s developed by City Interactive and published by Namco Bandai.
