Crossing 10 million units sold back in September, the Sniper Elite series could be getting a new entry, with the LinkedIn profile of an employee at digital arts company ADIA Entertainment listing Sniper Elite 4.
Responding to the apparent leak, developer Rebellion sent this statement to VideoGamer, revealing that they plan on announcing something before GDC, which begins on March 14:
To be honest we’re flattered that people are actively searching out for a new Sniper Elite title, and we certainly don’t mind being mentioned next to projects like Black Ops 3 and Unreal! However the person in question doesn’t work for Rebellion and we haven’t announced a new entry in the Sniper Elite series.
Last year we celebrated the Sniper Elite series’ 10th birthday and 10 millionth sale, so our IP is still hugely important to both Rebellion and independent UK games development. We’re actually gearing up to announce a new Rebellion game soon, so expect to hear more from us before GDC!
On their website, Rebellion added, “In short? We can’t confirm the unannounced projects we’re working on, but expect some news very soon!”
