The next game in the Sniper Elite series is coming in 2017. GameSpot got the opportunity to check Sniper Elite 4 out at E3 2016. You can read our preview of the game here.

Sniper Elite III received a score of 6/10 in GameSpot's review. Critic Josiah Renaudin said, "I often found myself cursing the more frustrating elements of Sniper Elite III. Broken matchmaking, and half-baked stealth sequences shouldn't be this incessant in a series that's just reached its third outing. But it's almost too easy to forget all of these head-scratching issues when that bullet makes contact with someone's cranium. It's a shallow, crude pleasure, but the delightful disorder that's just around every corner is strong enough to overshadow an otherwise forgettable experience."
