Rebellion and 505 Games have already begun working on the sequel to Sniper Elite V2. Slated for release in 2014, The team is currently focusing on creating all-new environments, a more refined gameplay experience and a brand new storyline. Sniper Elite 3 is being developed for current and next gen platforms as well as PC.
Sniper Elite 3 will continue the story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne during World War II. Sniper Elite V2 was the surprise hit of last year, introducing millions of gamers to its mix of tense atmosphere and intense action. There is no word on whether or not this new sequel will be playable on next-gen hardware however, our intuition expects both a current and next-gen version at launch.
“We’re very excited to be working with 505 Games again on a sequel that will build on the highly successful Sniper Elite V2. We’ve got some great ideas to improve on what we did before and feedback from fans has been invaluable. Sniper Elite V2 was just the beginning of what we want to do with the franchise, there are things we didn’t have time to do before that we can really look at featuring this time. We want to focus on making this latest incarnation of Sniper Elite more of a sandbox game but also build on the awesome X-Ray Kill Cam and the atmospheric World War II setting. We’re looking forward to seeing what Sniper Elite fans and gamers in general make of the latest chapter in the story,” said Jason Kingsley, CEO, Rebellion.
