Prepare to wipe our more Nazi scum. According to Pete Hines, Wolfenstein III is already underway.
In an interview with Metro, Hines, Bethesda’s Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, confirmed that Wolfenstein III is already being developed—but it’s not coming anytime soon.
“Absolutely we’re making a Wolfenstein III,” Hines said. “They said on stage (during YoungBlood’s E3 presentation) that they’re taking a break from the larger story to do this thing. But we all have to see how that ends.”
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was released in 2017 and has received a few DLC expansions. Youngblood will follow B.J. Blazkowicz’s twin daughters, embracing co-op in the process. It isn’t a full on sequel, but the standalone content will function similarly to 2015’s Old Blood to the previous year’s New Order. Youngblood is due in 2019.
Future Nazi clobbering wasn’t the only thing that Hines touched on, however. He briefly talked about a few other topics during the interview, including new entries in the Dishonored series. A separate interview with Arkane, the studios behind the series, suggested that the franchise was taking a rest, leading some fans to speculate that the series was dead and buried.
