Sniper Elite franchise reaches 10 million copies sold
Milestone reached after three titles, first debuting in 2005
Independent UK developer Rebellion has announced that the Sniper Elite series has surpassed 10 million units sold worldwide, since its debut in 2005.
Sniper Elite is a third-person tactical shooter series that emphasizes a less direct approach to combat, encouraging the player as a sniper to use stealth and keep distance from enemy soldiers.
To commemorate 10 years and 10 million sales, Rebellion is planning a month of special celebratory content, including new videos, livestreams, giveaways and more, starting today with a live video 'AMA' with developers from the original game released a decade ago.
Sales will also be running across platforms throughout the month, including this week's Steam sale which discounts the trilogy by up to 81%.
The Sniper Elite franchise has spanned three generations of consoles so far.
