Bethesda Game Studios have announced the development of Wolfenstein: The New Order for release on next-generation consoles in the near future. Taking place in an alternate universe to that of its franchise predecessors, The New Order focuses on a world left in chaos as the Nazis win World War Two, and is developed by the little-known team of MachineGames.
It would be easy to see this at first as a rather ambitious juncture in terms of Bethesda’s publishing of the product. Nevertheless, Bethesda clearly had faith in Arkane Games with the release of Dishonored last Autumn, and considering that that particular title won our Game Of The Year 2012 award, their faith is unlikely to be misplaced here either. Here’s hoping that we get a similarly spectacular new product courtesy of Bethesda’s finest come the end of the year.
Wolfenstein: The New Order retails for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC in Winter 2013.
