Rebellion, publisher in charge of the Sniper Elite 4’s physical release, expects to sell around 200,000 copies during day one in the UK.
CEO of Sold Out Gary Williams discussed the ambitions of the latest entry in the franchise in the latest issue of MCV.
“Sniper Elite 4 is triple-A. We have our big targets and that’s us playing with the top tier. We do a lot of things in the middle-tier where we’re handling deals better than they [developers] would have without us. With this one, we’re into the big hitter territory. Rebellion has realised it can do more of the publishing process themselves. It’s great to see a developer looking after themselves both boxed and digitally in that sector. You can look at something like that doing 200,000 units Day One in the UK”.
Sniper Elite 4 is the first game of the series to be published physically by Sold Out on consoles. Previous entries were published by 505 Games on console, with Rebellion handling the digital PC release.
Sniper Elite 4 launches on Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year.
