The lights are on
Developer Rebellion’s sniper video game series will continue the story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne’s World War II escapades – and judging by the logo, the new game will take place in Africa.
“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," says Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion. “We want to focus on making this latest incarnation of Sniper Elite more of a sandbox game and 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.”
The title is set to release in 2014 for current and next-gen platforms, as well as PC. Our reviewer generally liked the last iteration of the series.
