Development on Sniper Elite 3, the sequel to Sniper Elite V2, is underway, Rebellion and 505 Games have announced today.
Set to be released in 2014, the game is being developed by Rebellion and published by 505 Games. The shooter is currently in development for PC and consoles, both current and next-generation.
Sniper Elite 3 is set in World War II, and will follow the ongoing story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne.
“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,” said Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley.
“We’re looking forward to seeing what Sniper Elite fans and gamers in general make of the latest chapter in the story.”
505 Games North American president, Ian Howe, described Sniper Elite V2 as a “great success” and said that his studio is “thrilled” to be working with Rebellion on Sniper Elite 3.
