City Interactive revealed today that a new addition to the Sniper: Ghost Warrior franchise is in development for iOS devices. Due for release in Q1 2012, Sniper: Ghost Warrior for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch will translate all the intense long-range precision gameplay of its console counterpart to tablet and mobile.
Currently in development at Vivid Games, based in Bydgoszcz in Poland, Sniper: Ghost Warrior for iOS will be built on Unreal Engine3 from Epic Games Inc. The project – a fully-fledged AAA product – will make use of the Apple device’s unique control interface to bring handheld gamers even closer to the feeling of being an elite and unseen military marksman.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
