In a Reddit AMA, MachineGames confirmed that the next Wolfenstein game, Wolfenstein: Youngblood will not be timed-exclusive to the Epic Games Store. As such, and similarly to RAGE 2, Wolfenstein Youngblood will be coming on both the Bethesda store and Steam.
As MachineGames’ “JohnJennings” said when asked about it:
“I can answer that one. No, no timed exclusive on Epic!”
Unfortunately, MachineGames has not confirmed whether the game will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech or whether it will release a Linux version of the game.
In other news, the team would love to work on a new Enemy Territory title, cannot talk yet about Wolfenstein 3 (although they definitely plan on working on it), and there will be no crossplay in Youngblood.
Last but not least, Jerk Gustafsson shared some more details about Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
“Youngblood is different than our previous titles in many ways. Player progression is level-based and the game structure is non-linear, which means the experience is player directed in a way that we’ve never done before where players will be able to perform missions in any order they please. And while the storyline/campaign may be a bit lighter than New Order/New Colossus, the total gameplay time of Youngblood will exceed those titles.?
Youngblood will definitely maintain the core of Wolfenstein. Killing Nazi’s in co-op is really fun and B.J.s daughters truly shows that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.?
Your sister will go with you as an AI companion when you play alone, yes.?
There are abilities that are separated, but we are also introducing something we call Pep Signals that you can use to support you sister with during combat.”
