Pete Hines confirms that Wolfenstein 3 is in the pipelines

In a recent interview with GameCentral for British electronic entertainment website, Metro, the vice president of Bethesda Softworks, Pete Hines delivered some news that would undoubtedly make all fans of the Wolfenstein franchise very happy.

In between discussing broader issues and trends in the modern gaming industry, and saying that gamers should not be too hasty in writing off the future of the Dishonoured games, Pete Hines confirmed that Bethesda is ‘Absolutely’ working on the next entry in the Wolfenstein franchise.

The Doom and Wolfenstein franchises have always gone hand in hand, and it is nice to see that Bethesda has not forgotten Wolfenstein even with the sequel to Doom coming in 2019. These games have always performed brilliantly on PC, and I, for one, would like to see more of them.

Nonetheless, while the new, co-op game in the Wolfenstein universe has been scheduled for an affirmative 2019 release, namely Wolfenstein Youngblood, Hines makes no mention of when players will be able to get their hands on Wolfenstein III. Sadly, even a 2019 release seems optimistic at this stage, but at least we know its coming.
