Sniper Elite 4 has been given a release date of February 14th, 2017, so while you’ve got a bit of a wait for it, you’ll be able to feel the love this coming Valentine’s Day! So, even if you’re not getting a fumble from anyone, you can still blow Hitler’s bollocks off!
And if Rebellion can somehow build a time machine, then we can get Donald Trump to travel back in time and stand next to the Fuhrer! (but I can dream)
Rebellion’s co-founders, Jason and Chris Kingsley, have explained their decision to delay the game until February, and the Playstation VR unit has a bearing on it:
“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!
Launching Sniper Elite 4 in February gives us the opportunity to take a game that’s already received some of the best preview feedback we’ve ever had, and give it that extra bit of attention. We know a lot of you will be disappointed you won’t get to play Sniper Elite 4 this year, but we feel this decision will prove in the long run to be a win-win for both us and you, the fans.”
Keep your eyes peeled for further developments throughout E3, and keep your ears open for more details on one of the most anticipated World War 2 shooters for a generation.
