If you want your first-person shooters to make sure that your enemies by no means even see you coming, you’re more likely to be effectively catered to over the following 12 months. In a press launch issued earlier right this moment, Rebellion revealed that its engaged on not one, not two, however 4 Sniper Elite initiatives.
The first of these initiatives will likely be a remaster of Sniper Elite V2, which can see gamers return to the Berlin marketing campaign within the closing moments of the Second World War. If the possibility to pop Nazi heads in freshly-upgraded gore weren’t sufficient, the brand new model of the game will characteristic 16-player multiplayer, a photograph mode, and new playable characters. You’ll be capable to get your fingers on the remaster later this 12 months.
The different main takeaway is the announcement of “the next major title in the Sniper Elite series.” Presumably, this goes to be known as Sniper Elite 5, however in the mean time, particulars are comparatively scarce. We do know, nonetheless, that we’ll be taught extra about its improvement in some unspecified time in the future subsequent 12 months.
I do know I promised you 4 initiatives, however I’ll confess that the opposite two aren’t fairly as PC-centric as these I’ve simply talked about. Rebellion says that it’s additionally engaged on a standalone VR title to be revealed later this 12 months, which is a bit nearer to dwelling, however I’m afraid there’s no manner for me to swing a Switch launch of Sniper Elite three as notably related on this case.

I’ll have an interest to see the place the collection goes subsequent, albeit in a really geographical sense – there’s not an amazing have to iterate on some actually nice killcams. While Sniper Elite 2 came about in a comparatively grey-looking Germany, its successors took to sunnier climes, with games set in Italy and North Africa. A Pacific setting may very well be fascinating, however personally I’d somewhat see the collection head to greener shores – anyone up for a Dad’s Army crossover?
