New York, NY October 24, 2012 — City Interactive, a fast-growing international publisher and developer of interactive entertainment, today announced that its premier sniper game, Sniper: Ghost Warrior, has gone platinum with more than 700,000 units sold for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The impressive milestone comes in just a few short months before the launch of its sequel, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2.
Marshall Zwicker, City Interactive’s EVP Sales & Marketing for North America said: “We are pleased by the success of Sniper: Ghost Warrior as it exemplifies our commitment to creating the premier sniper gaming experience. With close to 3 million copies of the game sold worldwide across all platforms, the franchise is the benchmark for sniper games and we hope to establish a new standard with its successor, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2.”
