Rebellion revives Sniper Elite franchise

In a recent press release, British developer Rebellion, alongside publisher 505 Games, confirmed that Sniper Elite V2 is in production.

Following on from its 2005 predecessor Sniper Elite, the game promises to be a "modern take" on the original third-person shooter.

Whether this means the actual story — which saw the player take on the role of an American OSS agent during the end of World War II — will remain the same is unclear.

As it stands, the game is set for release in 2012 and will be available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Details past this remain scarce, though Rebellion has indicated its wish to retain the patience-rewarding realism that won the first game numerous accolades, including Best PC/Console Game at the TIGA awards.

Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley commented:

"It’s very exciting to be working with one of the new breed of major publishers like 505 Games. Sniper Elite was an important, genre-defining property and we’re hoping to have even greater success by teaming up with the talented guys at 505.

"It’s fantastic for us to be involved in the world of Sniper Elite again. We look forward to winning even more awards with Sniper Elite V2 and wowing the consumers with what will be a great game."
