Sniper Elite 4 delayed to February 2017

Rebellion said it decided to move the World War 2 shooter into 2017 because its PlayStation VR title Battlezone would be arriving in the same quarter.

“Battlezone will release in October as a launch title alongside PlayStation VR,” said rebellion. “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.”

The additional months also have the added benefit of giving the team extra time to add an “extra bit of attention” before release.

Sniper Elite 4 is a direct sequel to Sniper Elite 3, and continues the story of marksman Karl Fairburne. He’s in Italy this time out, fighting alongside the Italian Resistance.

PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users can pick the shooter up on February 14, 2017.
