Wolfenstein III Confirmed By Bethesda
Vice president of PR and marketing of Bethesda Pete Hines, has just revealed that the company is definitely going to make Wolfenstein III at the near future.
Speaking with Metro, Hines was asked outright if there would be a third entry in the acclaimed Nazi-killing shooter, to which he responded:
“Absolutely we’re making a Wolfenstein III,” he said. “They said on stage that they’re taking a break from the larger story to do [Wolfenstein: Youngblood]. But we all have to see how that ends.”
In the interview, Hines also touched on another Bethesda series with an uncertain future: Dishonored. When asked about the recent comment from a developer from Arkane Studios that Dishonored is “resting,” Hines said, “Ah, I wouldn’t read too much into that.”
He continued, “Look, Arkane has two studios, they’re working on a number of things. That’s no different than Todd Howard saying, ‘I’m gonna make a Fallout game and then I’m gonna make Starfield before I go back to TES6.’ He didn’t say I’m never making another… there’s like, ‘We have an idea for another thing here, we have an idea for another there.'”
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One last year, Fallout 76 launches November 14th. Doom Eternal, Rage 2, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood are scheduled for 2019. Upcoming announced titles without release date are Starfield, The Elder Scrolls VI and now Wolfenstein III.
Developer MachineGames was established in 2009 by former founding members of Starbreeze Studios and acquired by ZeniMax Media in 2010. Located in Uppsala, Sweden. Their first title, the critically-acclaimed action-adventure shooter, Wolfenstein: The New Order, is a reimagining of the franchise widely credited for helping establish the first-person shooter genre. Launched in May 2014, the game has garnered numerous ‘Game of the Year’ and ‘Shooter of the Year’ awards and nominations from media outlets worldwide.
