UK based developer Rebellion has announced a release date for Sniper Elite 4, along with a selection of new screenshots for the WW2 shooter.

The title was announced back in March, and was originally intended to see a release before the end of 2016, but Jason and Chris Kingsley – co-founders of Rebellion – explained the decision in a press release.

They said:

When we revealed Sniper Elite 4 back in March our plan was to release it at the end of 2016. However, we now know Battlezone will release in October as a launch title alongside PlayStation VR. That gave us a tough decision to make. Ultimately, we’re a relatively small independent studio, and releasing two major titles in the same quarter didn’t seem like a sensible thing to do. A few of our shared internal teams will probably sleep a bit easier now!

Sniper Elite 4 is set in Italy, 1943, and follows Office of Strategic Services agent Karl Fairburne as he aids the Italian Resistance in a bid to free the country from “fascist leaders”.

Rebellion are aiming to create the “ultimate” World War II shooter, and have previously pointed out that this is the first Sniper Elite game that was designed without the limitations of last gen hardware, as Sniper Elite 3 came out for both last and current generation consoles.

Sniper Elite 4’s maps will also be “many times the size” of anything we saw in the last game. Check out a trailer below.

Considering Sniper Elite 4 has already generated some good vibes from the existing previews, a little more time to polish the game should produce something very special indeed.
