Sniper Elite 3 Announced For Current and Next-Gen Systems

Rebellion and 505 have announced that Sniper Elite 3, a follow-up to Sniper Elite v2, will be coming to current and next-gen consoles as well as PC.

According to 505, Sniper Elite 3 "will continue the story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne during World War II."

“Sniper Elite V2 has been a great success for us and we are thrilled to partner with Rebellion on Sniper Elite 3," said Ian Howe, president, 505 Games North America. “Fans can look forward to the same heart-pounding action they have come to expect from a Sniper Elite game as well as refined and new features that will blow them away.”

The game will release in 2014.

“We’re very excited to be working with 505 Games again on a sequel that will build on the highly successful Sniper Elite V2. We’ve got some great ideas to improve on what we did before and feedback from fans has been invaluable. Sniper Elite V2 was just the beginning of what we want to do with the franchise, there are things we didn’t have time to do before that we can really look at featuring this time. We want to focus on making this latest incarnation of Sniper Elite more of a sandbox game but also build on the awesome X-Ray Kill Cam and the atmospheric World War II setting. We’re looking forward to seeing what Sniper Elite fans and gamers in general make of the latest chapter in the story,” said Jason Kingsley, CEO, Rebellion.

Hi There, Are you planning on looking into the Sniper 3 Stolen/illegitamate/don't like us getting cheap keys fiasco ? I would like to know what the real reason is for our steam keys getting revoked after being accepted for pre load. I did not think looking for a bargain was a crime. Bought mine from CD keys which all bargain hunters love so should be of great interest to your readers.

Strange situation. Until Rebellion explains what they mean by "stolen" (stolen how? by whom? why?) it looks distinctly fishy.

"To clarify, one of our PC retail distributors informed us that some of their allotted Steam keys were stolen. We believe these keys were then resold to multiple companies, with no payments going to either Valve or the retail distributor."

Hmm. Shame if true, but apparently somewhere in the region of 40-60 resellers are affected. This seems an awful lot of buyers for "some of" a single batch of keys, unless the same codes were sold multiple times.

I'll have a little poke around, until then, be sure to drop CDKeys a line for a refund if you haven't already. https://twitter.com/cdkeyscom/status/482567456578625536

EDIT: It's possible that by "stolen" they actually mean "bought with a stolen/cloned/identity thefted credit card, then sold in lots to resellers." This has happened before, an example being CJD CD Keys, who tried to flog moody Wildstar keys according to plenty of posts. They probably bought the keys without really caring about their provenance.
