International publisher 505 Games and developer Rebellion has announced the long-awaited console sequel to third person tactical WWII shooter, with Sniper Elite V2.
Sniper Elite V2 will be a modern take on the critically and publically acclaimed classic Sniper Elite for the current generation of consoles – revitalising a genre all of its own when it is released in 2012.
“We’re very excited to be working with Rebellion on this highly anticipated sequel. Sniper Elite has always been the benchmark of the genre and never been bettered....until now,” said Ian Howe, Managing Director of 505 Games. “Guaranteed that the sequel will be the most authentic WW2 sniping experience ever – not just in terms of weapon ballistics, but also in delivering the heart-pulsing tension of those do or die moments where one shot really does matter.”

Rebellion to bring Sniper Elite V2 to PC
Rebellion is delighted to announce that it is planning to develop a PC version of its forthcoming third-person tactical WWII shooter, Sniper Elite V2.
International publisher 505 Games and Rebellion announced in April that they are working on the long-awaited sequel to 2005’s critically-acclaimed Sniper Elite for the current generation of consoles.
Now, due to unprecedented fan demand, Rebellion is to self-fund its own PC version of the game.
The PC title will be released digitally through Steam, and Rebellion is now looking for potential retail distribution partners worldwide.
