Some exciting news from 505 Games this morning, as they’ve confirmed that Sniper Elite 3 is in development for next-generation consoles, aiming for a 2014 release.

Sniper Elite V2 sold over 1.1 million copies, so there’s clearly a market for more sniping action. “505 Games believe in the extremely high potential of this brand,” the publisher noted.

No details or screenshots for Sniper Elite 3, but it will more than likely feature sniper rifles and plenty of headshots. I seriously doubt Rebellion will remove that awesome x-ray kill cam too.
