Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army series hits half a Million sales

Rebellion marks series’ first birthday with huge sale, announces console entry also in development.

February 28 th 2014, Oxford - Independent UK developer Rebellion today announced that the hugely successful Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army series has reached over  half a million  sales across Steam, retail, and the Rebellion Gamestore.

To celebrate the series’ first birthday the studio has released a bundle pack including both games and launched a 75% sale on both  Steam (ending March 3 rd) and the  Rebellion Gamestore (ending March 7 th).

That means gamers can pick up the  entire series for just £4.49 / $6.25  or download either game on their own for just £2.49 / $3.75.

Console entry now in development

Released a year ago today, the series made its debut with Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army – a horror spin-off from 2012’s award winning Sniper Elite V2.

But the intense four-player co-op and great value price point quickly proved so popular that a dedicated team began to work on a sequel, eventually launching seven months later during Halloween 2013.

Both games were only available on PC, and having teased the possibilities in previous statements Rebellion’s CEO and Creative Director Jason Kingsley can now finally confirm that a console entry is in development.

“We can’t say much yet but it won’t just be a re-package of the first two games - there will be plenty of new content to get stuck into.”

“Like many independent developers, we’re still learning the ropes and having a lot of conversations with the platform holders. We’re not at the stage where we can confirm the platforms right now, but we’re fortunate to have experience already from self-publishing on Steam and mobile, so we’re confident it’ll go smoothly.”

  • Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 1 & 2 together have sold over half a million units world-wide through digital platforms and retail in just one year.
