Sniper Elite V2
Sniper Elite 3 Confirmed For Current and Next-Gen Consoles
Written By
View author's profile

505 Games has announced that Sniper Elite 3 (the 'V' bit has been dropped it seems) is in the pipeline at developer Rebellion, and will be heading to current-gen consoles and next-generation platforms next year.

Apparently, Sniper Elite and Sniper Elite V2 enjoyed “worldwide success" with V2 selling around 1.1 million copies between the game's launch in April 2012 and the end of December. "505 Games believe in the extremely high potential of this brand," the publisher noted. Hence the announcement of this sequel.

There's no details forthcoming on Sniper Elite 3 at present (that's a V2 screenshot below), but we can tell you that it'll more than likely feature rifles and bullets. Sniper Elite 3 is slated for a 2014 launch.

wonder if they'll keep the WW2 setting, or shift forward like every other military shooter these days.

I've been meaning to pick up V2 for quite a while now. I've heard good things about it, but my huge backlog is causing massive delays.

i liked V2, seeems like so many people did not, you know it would be nice to have a descent Vietnam game, but as long as they find an intersting WW2 story line i wouldnt mind that either

i loved sniper elite ,but think its a massive injustice that us console owners fork out for the game only to get shunned by rebeliion when it came to the nazi zombie add on.I would love to know how many pc sales this game racked up ,because at over a million console sales (.53 million xbox and .54 million ps3),im guessing we made them the lions share of their profits.
I was a great game, i just feel cheated.

It was actually a very enjoyable game, I might have to pick it up again and play the DLC that was added after I sold the game, just hoping it's still in the WW2 setting though.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first game, though it was a kind of one-trick pony.

If they can iron out the non-sniper rifle gunplay, I think this could be a good series to get behind.

I agree with #1. If they go MMS with this, no buy for me.

I hope its in the cold war that would be pretty sweet. and it might be likely that it is because of what the main character says at the end of v2 (no spoilers)
