Sniper Elite 3 is scheduled to release sometime in 2014 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and next-generation consoles, publisher 505 Games announced.

The parent company of 505 Games, Digital Bros., sent out a press release regarding the financial impact of Sniper Elite 3 in January. The news was unnoticed as 505 Games remained mum.

According to the press release, 505 Games has faith in the potential of the Sniper Elite franchise. In fact, Digital Bros. expects the latest installment of the series to have a large financial impact on the company by generating 28.6 million Euros–more than $37 million in U.S. currency–in revenue.

Sniper Elite V2 hit retail outlets last April. The game sold 1.1 million units for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2012, accounting for $28.6 million in revenues. A version for Wii U is expected to launch this Spring.

Developed by Rebellion, Sniper Elite V2 is a third-person tactical shooter designed to accurately recreate the difficulty of pulling off a long-distance sniper shot. Set in the final days of World War II, the game puts players in the middle of a battle between the Germans and Russians in war-torn Berlin.

The zombie spin-off game, Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army, is available now on Steam.

During the PlayStation 4 announcement last month, the Rebellion logo was included in a shot on stage showing the developers who will support the next-gen console.

There is no specific release window announced for Sniper Elite 3. However, the press release states the financial impact from the game will affect the company’s 2013-2014 fiscal year. There is no word on a potential PC release.

    This game was great and definitely worth the price I got it on STEAM.

    I hope this one doesn’t disappoint.
