505 Games and Rebellion confirmed today that Sniper Elite V2 is headed to both the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012. The game is a sequel to the third-person tactical WWII shooter released in 2005.
“It’s very exciting to be working with one of the new breed of major publishers like 505 Games,” said Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion. “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.”
Players will take on the role of an American OSS agent disguised as a German sniper in Berlin in the final days of World War II. Sniper Elite V2 promises to offer an authentic sniping experience with its implementation of weapon ballistics.
