Does Sniper Elite 5 have a release date yet?

After originally informing players at the end of its cinematic trailer that the game would arrive in 2022, Rebellion have now provided a more accurate May 26, 2022, release date.

Rebellion were presumably just finalizing some final details on Sniper Elite before delivering the final date. Given how volatile the gaming industry is right now, there’s always the potential for it to be pushed back.

It wasn’t too long before hopeful patrons had more Sniper Elite 5 content. On January 25, 2022, Rebellion followed up the original debut trailer with a far more narrative-heavy video that also teased some potential new features.

The footage released so far looks to be a lot more of what Sniper Elite fans love about the series – especially the cinematic journey of a bullet going through someone’s unwitting skull. There’s also more of finding the right spot to execute some gnarly sniper kills, the perfect recipe of stealth and close-combat action, and maybe a new invasion element?

Sniper Elite 5’s cinematic trailer concluded with the tease of a new feature that could see online players hunt you down Dark Souls style. It seemed very Deathloop-like in its suggestion, and the variation could prove to be a winning formula for the game.

Sniper Elite 5 platforms

Both trailers make sure to point out that Sniper Elite 5 will be available for players on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

There is no word of the game coming to the Nintendo Switch platform as yet, but things can always change between now and release.
