Rebellion and 505 Games have announced that Sniper Elite 3 is currently in development, and will be released on both current andnext-gen platforms.
Sniper Elite 3 will continue to follow elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne during World War II, and build off of Sniper Elite V2‘s gameplay.
Rebellion’s CEO Jason Kingsley had this to say:
“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.”
Sniper Elite 3 is set to release in 2014 to current and next-gen platforms, and PC.
