Rebellion and 505 Games are to continue the Sniper Elite series with the announcement today of Sniper Elite 3.
The game is scheduled for a 2014 release and will feature a new storyline with OSS sniper Karl Fairburne during World War II.
“Sniper Elite V2 has been a great success for us and we are thrilled to partner with Rebellion on Sniper Elite 3,” said Ian Howe, president, 505 Games North America. “Fans can look forward to the same heart-pounding action they have come to expect from a Sniper Elite game as well as refined and new features that will blow them away.”
The plan is to make this more of a sandbox style game and build on the WWII setting. The game will be coming to console and PC.
