A sequel to 2005 console and PC hit Sniper Elite is on the way next year from publisher 505 Games.
Called Sniper Elite V2, the title is being developed by UK studio Rebellion whose other hits include Aliens vs Predator, Star Wars: Battlefront and Rogue Trooper – as well as the original Sniper Elite.
“We’re very excited to be working with Rebellion on this highly anticipated sequel.," 505 Games MD Ian Howe stated. "Sniper Elite has always been the benchmark of the genre and never been bettered....until now.
“Guaranteed that the sequel will be the most authentic WW2 sniping experience ever – not just in terms of weapon ballistics, but also in delivering the heart-pulsing tension of those do or die moments where one shot really does matter.”
Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley added: “It’s very exciting to be working with one of the new breed of major publishers like 505 Games. Sniper Elite was an important, genre-defining property and we’re hoping to have even greater success by teaming up with the talented guys at 505.”
