Four New 'Sniper Elite' Projects Announced, Including 'Sniper Elite 5'

15 March 2019

The news comes from a Sniper Elite Development Update video, where Rebellion's CEO and co-founder Jason Kingsley confirmed that four games are now in development for the tactical shooter franchise: Sniper Elite V2 Remastered (the original, of which, actually appeared on Wii U back in the day), Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition especially for Switch, a new, standalone Sniper Elite game for VR devices, and the next major title in the series as a follow-up to Sniper Elite 4. Check out the remaster in action above. Offering stunningly enhanced graphics, 4K resolution and HDR display, this is the visually definitive version of Sniper Elite V2. You'll also be able to take photos of your sneaky misadventures with the new photo mode, take control of new playable characters and muck around with 16-player multiplayer. Rebellion says that it's also working on a standalone VR title to be revealed later this year, which is a bit closer to home, but I'm afraid there's no way for me to swing a Switch release of Sniper Elite 3 as particularly relevant in this case.

Despite the leak, Rebellion is promising more to announce today.

The other major takeaway is the announcement of "the next major title in the Sniper Elite series". As such, and given that Sniper Elite 5 will be based on Sniper Elite 4, I guess we can expect more open-world environments with more detailed slow-mo kills. You can check out a trailer for the game, here.
