Snipers, it’s time y’all return to the battlefield!
It was back in 2017 that we witnessed the spectacular release of the award-winning game series, Sniper Elite 4. And ever since then fans have been awaiting the release of the next game! Well, what do you think – will we get Sniper Elite 5 this year? Or do we have to wait it out a little more? Cmon, let’s get the knack of it.
The Sniper Elite is a well-recognized game franchise that debuted on the 29th of September, 2005. Since then, the growth of the game franchise has only increased. The game was successfully developed by Indie Studio Rebellion, in such a way that the players assume control of the Karl Fairburne fights to deduce Project Kraken in 1944, France. The players fight with a high-powered sniper rifle with enhanced kill cam across immersive maps to stave off the Nazi war machines.
But oh well, the big question still remains unanswered – when are we getting the next game in the series? Damn, what will be the gameplay? Here’s everything we know so far.
