Publisher Rebellion today confirmed it has delayed Sniper Elite 4 to February 2017.
The game will be delayed as Rebellion plans to support its PlayStation VR WWII shooter, Battlezone, in October 2016 instead.
“Battlezone will release in October as a launch title alongside PlayStation VR,” Rebellion said. “That gave us a tough decision to make. Ultimately, we’re a relatively small independent studio, and releasing two major titles in the same quarter didn’t seem like a sensible thing to do.”
The delay means that Sniper Elite 4 will get an “extra bit of attention” ahead of its release.
Sniper Elite 4 is planned for Windows PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
