Almost exactly a year ago, Rebellion brought Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army to PCs. A spin-off of 2012's popular Nazi melon-popper, Sniper Elite V2, with an undead twist, the game proved so popular that Rebellion worked on a dedicated sequel, which they released that Halloween.
Now, to celebrate over half a million sales of the spin-off series in the year since its launch, Rebellion have confirmed that they are working on bringing the games to consoles. CEO and Creative Director Jason Kingsley stated:
We can’t say much yet but it won’t just be a re-package of the first two games - there will be plenty of new content to get stuck into.Confirmation of exactly which consoles this announcement relates to, as well as a proposed release date for the title, remain forthcoming. Sniper Elite 3, the next iteration of the main series, is due on 360 and One later this year.
Like many independent developers, we’re still learning the ropes and having a lot of conversations with the platform holders. We’re not at the stage where we can confirm the platforms right now, but we’re fortunate to have experience already from self-publishing on Steam and mobile, so we’re confident it’ll go smoothly.
