Sniper Elite 3 has been announced by 505 Games and Rebellion. Confirmed for current and next-generation platforms in 2014, gameplay and narrative details remain thin on the ground at the moment in time.
It was commissioned in response to strong sales for Sniper Elite V2, which shifted 1.1 million copies between April and December last year.
Sniper Elite V2 was released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC last year, and has since received additional multiplayer content and a zombie-based spinoff titled Nazi Zombie Army.
Announced last month, Nazi Zombie Army features a four-player co-operative campaign set in WWII, as well as new enemies and weapons.
