505 Games' Sniper Elite V2 came out last May to a decent response from fans and critics alike. In fact, the 1090 people here on TA who took a second to rate the game have awarded it an average of 4.0/5 stars, which is pretty impressive. Thanks to the game's reception, 505 Games announced today that they are once again partnering with Rebellion to release Sniper Elite 3.
At this moment, the only details we have aside from the above logo is that it is in development for next gen consoles and will be released in 2014. We also have this statement from Jason Kingsley, CEO, Rebellion, to share with you:
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.What improvements are you hoping to see in Sniper Elite 3?
