Following the successful release of Sniper Elite V2 last year, Rebellion and 505 Games have already announced a sequel, Sniper Elite 3, is in the works to be released on the PC and next generation consoles in 2014. Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion, had the following 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.”
Additional details and actual assets such don't exist at the moment, but we will provide further coverage as it's available.
