City Interactive is increasing shipments of Sniper: Ghost Warrior following the game's unexpected success in the UK. The game premiered two weeks ago at fifth place on Chart-Track's Xbox 360 chart and tenth on the All Formats chart, dipping four spots last week. Not bad for the developer's first major title.

MCV reports that City Interactive CEO Marek Tyminski stated, "We are extremely pleased with the reception Sniper: Ghost Warrior has received." Tyminski is likely talking about the game's financial success and not its critical reception. The game currently has a Metacritic score of 55 and 45 on the PC and Xbox 360, respectively.
