Sniper Elite 3 targets 2014 for next-gen consoles and PC

Follow-up to Sniper Elite V2

Rebellion is partnering with 505 Games on a new installment in its World War II sniping series for next-gen platforms and PC. Sniper Elite 3 will once again feature OSS sniper Karl Fairburne when it arrives later next year.

“We’ve got some great ideas to improve on what we did before and feedback from fans has been invaluable,” said Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley. “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.”

Some of Sniper Elite V2‘s kill-cam shots are just painful to watch — imagine what those might look like running on higher-end hardware. I’m already grimacing. The transition to more of a sandbox environment does sound intriguing, though.
