Sniper Elite 5 pulled from the Epic Games Store

Sniper Elite 5, the latest in the Sniper Elite series, has launched on most major platforms… except Epic. At the time of writing, the game is not available on the Epic Games Store. According to an FAQ on the Rebellion website, customers who pre-ordered on EGS have received a refund.

One theory we’ve heard is that the game won’t be available until after the Epic Games mega sale ends. The sale, which runs from May 19 to June 16, offers 25% off games over $15. It’s not clear if that would also apply to game purchases on release day, but there’s a good reason.

As a result of the confusion, Sniper Elite 5 still has a page on EGS. The game’s status is “coming soon”, so I think this is just a temporary setback. On Windows, Sniper Elite 5 is currently available on Steam and PC Game Pass. So for those of you who want to play on PC, these are your options. It is also available on console for PS4, PS5, XBox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.

The sniper series follows Karl Fairburne on his Nazi murder adventures around the world. This time you find yourself in France, fighting against the Nazi war machine around D-Day.

We have reached out to Rebellion for comment, but have not heard anything back so far. We will update with any responses we receive.
