Wolfenstein series fans might have more games to look forward to in the future, as confirmed by Pete Hines in an interview.
Bethesda Softworks is the publisher for the Wolfenstein series, mainly developed by MachineGames. They are all critically acclaimed games and the sequel for Wolfenstein launched just last year. Unfortunately, the sales for it weren’t that hot based on the result shared by various retail sales trackers.
In an interview with Metro Game Central UK, Pete Hines, Head of Global Marketing at Bethesda Softworks, confirmed that they have plans to develop Wolfenstein 3. The development team, MachinesGames, is just taking a break from the larger story in order to focus on the smaller VR project that was announced at E3 2018.
“Yeah, sure. Absolutely we’re making a Wolfenstein III. They said on stage that they’re taking a break from the larger story to do this thing. But we all have to see how that ends.”
He also stated that Bethesda Softworks was happy with the sales for the game. While they could have hoped for more sales, the result was not that bad to completely cancel the series as others speculated. The confirmation of Wolfenstein 3 is nice to have since it would be a shame to miss out on completing the trilogy.
Wolfenstein 2 launched this year for the Nintendo Switch, as ported by Panic Button. It is already available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC while the recent Nintendo Switch lacks the post-launch DLC content for the game.
