Rebellion working on Sniper Elite sequel

Rebellion Games has announced a new project; Sniper Elite V2, the sequel to 2005’s WW2 sim.

The console-bound snipe ’em up will be published by 505 Games next year, promising to be the most realistic sniping sim you’ve ever come across.

505 MD Ian Howe said: “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.

“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.”

We’d be excited but sniping isn’t really our specialty. Last time we tried it Grandma had to go to hospital and the whole room was covered in cake. Long story, don’t ask.
