Sniper Elite 5, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered, and More Announced by Rebellion
Get ready for a whole lot more exploding craniums, because Rebellion Developments have announced they have a whopping four Sniper Elite projects in the works. These include the next major original entry in the series, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered, Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition for the Nintendo Switch, and a Sniper Elite VR experience. You can get the full rundown of everything coming, below.
Rebellion Developments is proud to announce four upcoming projects in the Sniper Elite franchise!
- Sniper Elite V2 Remastered will bring 1945 Berlin to current platforms with stunning new visuals and a host of new features.
- Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition on Switch introduces Karl’s breathtaking North African adventure to a Nintendo platform for the first time ever.
- A new, standalone Sniper Elite game for VR devices is being developed in partnership with independent British studio Just Add Water, known for their work on the Oddworld and Gravity Crash series.
- The next major title in the Sniper Elite series, following in the footsteps of the widely acclaimed Sniper Elite 4, is being worked on now.
You can check out a trailer for Sniper Elite V2 Remastered, which will include 4K and HDR support, new playable characters, and a frame-by-frame photo mode, below.
And here’s a look at Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition running on the Nintendo Switch.
I’ve always thought the Sniper Elite games were a touch underappreciated, so it’s nice to see Rebellion throwing their full weight behind the series. Sniper Elite 5 is, apparently, very early in development and won’t be shown for at least a year, but I’m definitely excited to see what Rebellion cooks up.
Sniper Elite V2 Remastered (PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch), Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition (Switch), and Sniper Elite VR are all slated to come out sometime in 2019.
