UK developer Rebellion has announced Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 for the PC.
The sequel will be released on the PC before the end of the year. The original game, which Rebellion says was a "gamble," was released in February 2013 and "pretty much made its money back" on the first day of release.
Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army is a four-player co-op spin-off to Sniper Elite V2. Rebellion explained the sequel to Eurogamer, with creative head Tim Jones saying that "we really wanted to heighten the demonic, nightmarish tones of the first game."
Rebellion boss Jason Kingsley said the studio was also considering the possibility of self-publishing the game on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
"Before there wasn't really the possibility of self-publishing, so you couldn't even begin to think about it. You had to go via a third party and do a deal with somebody else. It made it less and less attractive."
"Nazi Zombie Army was a gamble, really. We didn't know whether it would work. We hoped people would like it. We hoped people would take it in the slightly tongue in cheek way it was meant with the title. And we obviously didn't have much money to market it."
"So we just put it out there and it's been very very good business and we've created a lot of fans who just like a straightforward gory shooter against zombies. It pretty much made its money back on the day of release. That was awesome."
