Sniper Elite 3 is official and is set for ALL the consoles. Except Wii U.
505 Games will be publishing the games on each of the consoles, but Rebellion will be self-publishing the game on PC.
Sniper Elite 3 will continue to story of Karl Fairburne – the main character of Sniper Elite V2 – and will focus on a more sandbox experience, presumably enabling you to pick your route through a level instead of the previous game’s fairly limited approach.
“Sniper Elite V2 was just the beginning of what we want to do with the franchise,” said Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion, “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”
There was no mention of a Wii U version of Sniper Elite 3, but Sniper Elite V2 is being released for Nintendo’s console later this year.
