It appears we have another title that will be released for current- and next-gen platforms.
Publisher 505 Games has announced that Sniper Elite 3 is in development, presumably for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as well as the PS4 and Microsoft's new system.
We don't have any details just yet, but UK developer Rebellion was among the 143 developers who had already signed on to work with Sony's new console. And although you may have missed it, Sniper Elite V2 sold over a million copies worldwide, so perhaps this follow-up effort is indeed warranted. Sniper Elite 3 is slated to launch some time next year, and it could prove to be a very interesting and challenging title. But you watch, due to the amped-up graphics, the mainstream media will call it a true "killing simulator" or some such nonsense. Controversy is inevitable.
As the graphics get better, the experiences do get more intense and gaming will be under the microscope more than ever.
