Sniper Elite 2 Announced

Not that the first game was a path breaking shooter, but it seems publisher 505 Games are gearing up for another Sniper Elite game. The reins of development have been passed over to British developer Rebellion (Aliens VS. Predator) and the game will be released sometime for the PC and Xbox360 in 2012. In case the name hasn’t tipped you off yet, you will be playing as an elite sniper in the game.

Expect a lot of sniping

Here’s what Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion had to say on this moderately joyous occasion, "It's very exciting to be working with one of the new breed of major publishers like 505 Games. 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."
