has announced that Sniper Elite 3
is coming to Xbox 360
and next-gen consoles
in next year.
"Following the success of Sniper Elite, Sniper Elite V2 and published games for the PC, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3, 505 Games
believes in extremely high potential of this brand,"said 505 Games publisher
at the official statement, and boasted that Sniper Elite V2
" has gained a huge worldwide success with about 1.1 million" copies sold since the release in April 2012. until the end of December. The result is that only the Sniper Elite V2
had a revenue of 28 million euros, and Wii version has not even come out.
has just announced that Sniper Elite 3 exists, that they work on it, and it will came out in next year. It seems that this is yet another cross-gen title since it will be released for current and next generation consoles. 505's note specifies Sniper Elite 3 will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and "next-generation platforms". We assume this means PlayStation 4 and the next Xbox, and we expect it to launch on PC, too, although this version may be self-published as was the case with its predecessor. There's no mention of the Wii U..
Sniper Elite 3
contains a brand new story and atmospheric themes of the Second World War, and more focus on the sandbox-style sniper gameplay."
