The news of a new Wolfenstein game at E3 2017 would’ve brought delight to many, after the positive reception received for the previous game Wolfenstein: The New Order and the standalone outing The Old Blood.
For those of you wondering as to where the series is going beyond the recently announced Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, there may be some good news regarding the franchise’s future. In an interview at E3 with MachineGames’ creative director Jens Matthies, it was confirmed that not only would The New Colossus not be the last game, but that the studio is also working on a sequel:
“We always envisioned this as a trilogy. If we get to make the third one–once we introduce Mecha-Hitler, you can’t go up from there”
Let’s face it, we are all waiting for Mecha-Hitler to make an appearance to do battle with, especially if you remember scrapping with him back in the original game all those years ago. As for the future of the franchise, its hard to believe that even a third game would be the last, given the importance of the series on the first-person shooter genre when the original game made its debut.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus sees the return of ever-present protagonist BJ Blazkowicz blasting his way through Nazi-occupied America. As with all Wolfenstein games, this will be single-player only, with no multiplayer planned to be coming with it. The sequel is set for release on October 27th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
