Rebellion has announced a delay in its release of the upcoming WWII shooter Sniper Elite 4. Previously announced for launch in late 2016, it will now be released on Feb. 14, 2017 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
In a blog post, Rebellion stated:
So when we sat down recently to decide a launch date, we had a decision to make. Do we stick to 2016 as planned many moons ago, or do we give the team just a little more time to help them deliver beyond the promise that the game has already shown, to hone the game's best features, or even add new ones that previously might have been left on the cutting-room floor? It wasn't an easy decision but for us it seems like a win-win for both Rebellion and Sniper Elite fans
Here's a brief description of Sniper Elite 4:
Set in the aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series' World War Two heritage by transporting players across the beautiful Italian peninsula, from sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns, to colossal Nazi mega structures, daunting forests and giddying mountain monasteries inspired by Monte Cassino. With an expansive campaign for 1-2 players and dedicated co-op and adversarial multiplayer modes, Sniper Elite 4 aims to deliver the definitive World War Two shooter for a generation, with unrivalled sniping freedom across maps many times the size of those seen in Sniper Elite 3.
