505 Games has announced to the popular gaming behemoth IGN that a follow up to Sniper Elite V2 is in the works and will be released for both current and next-gen consoles in 2014.
It is quoted that “following the worldwide success of Sniper Elite and Sniper Elite V2 released on PC, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3, 505 Games believe in the extremely high potential of this brand.” 505 says that Sniper Elite V2 “gained a great worldwide success around 1.1 million copies” sold “since the April 2012 launch to the end of December.”
ThisisXbox rated Sniper Elite V2 7.5/10 last May:
Sniper Elite V2 falls into the good-but-not-great category of shooters, it’s not boring in gameplay at all and some parts of the game are a real pleasure to see. One of the highlights for instance is the X-Ray Kill Cam that’s activated upon successfully dealing a heavy damaging blow to your enemy. In slow motion the bullet tears through the air before forcefully impounding itself into the body, and you get to see organs tear and burst, bones shatter and your enemy dies on the ground in pool of his own blood. Another is the ability to pull out your binoculars and tag the enemy as you plan your attack, but it’s just a real shame that the environments don’t feel like they are interacting with your journey.
No specifics on the story content or multiplayer elements have been released, but when details are announced in the near future we’ll keep you posted soldiers.
