Rebellion and 505 Games have announced that Sniper Elite 3, a sequel to Sniper Elite V2, is currently in development and will continue the story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne. The title has been set to release next year for PC and current gen consoles, as well as next-gen platforms.

Sniper Elite V2 has been a great success for us and we are thrilled to partner with Rebellion on Sniper Elite 3,” said Ian Howe, president of 505 Games North America.  “Fans can look forward to the same heart-pounding action they have come to expect from a Sniper Elite game as well as refined and new features that will blow them away.”

“We’re very excited to be working with 505 Games again on a sequel that will build on the highly successful Sniper Elite V2. We’ve got some great ideas to improve on what we did before and feedback from fans has been invaluable. 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,” said Jason Kingsley, CEO at Rebellion.
