Over at MP1st, they have reported that the up and coming Sniper Elite V2, will have Team Deathmatch, but it will only be included in the PC version of the game. On the XBox and PS3, they said they just couldn't support it.
As for competitive multiplayer, the team has recently confirmed that Sniper Elite V2 on PC will have Team Deathmatch with up to 12 players. The developers stated, “we are very proud to finally confirm that the Team Death Match multiplayer, with dedicated server, will be available for the PC version of Sniper Elite V2 at launch. Currently, the intention is to support up to 12 players in competitive multiplayer.”
Unfortunately, PS3 and Xbox 360 players will only have access to the online co-op modes listed above. Rebellion confirmed on Twitter that “Consoles have co-op levels, PC has full TDM [along with co-op].” As for the reason why console players will not get TDM, Rebellion explained, “we only had the power to make that decision on the PC version. We chose to include it.” Rebellion were able to include TDM because the studio is “self-publishing” the PC version, not 505 Games.
As a console gamer, I am not liking this decision. I was looking forward to the competitive side of this game because on the PS2, it was a lot of fun. I hope they change their minds.
Reading the above, it sounds like it's not their decision. It sounds like 505 is pushing them for a release of the console versions, so they don't have time to put it in. However, since they are self publishing the PC version, they will take that extra time to include it.
Your wrath should probably be directed at the publisher (505 Games) of the console versions, as I'm sure it would be in there were it up to Rebellion.
