After being acquired by Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media back in 2010
, the Uppsala, Sweden-based MachineGames has finally revealed what it's been up to: a reboot of the Wolfenstein
first-person shooter franchise.
Wolfenstein: The New Order
will be released for current and next-gen consoles, as well as Windows PC, in the fourth quarter of 2013, and leads on from previous installments in the series.
This new title will be published by Bethesda Softworks. The last release in the franchise was Wolfenstein
in 2009, co-developed by Raven Software, id Software, Pi Studios, and Endrant Studios.
Of course, Bethesda now owns the franchise following its acquisition of id Software in 2009
Although this is MachineGames' first title, many of the studio's staffers are best known as former key members of Starbreeze Studios, including Starbreeze founder Magnus Hogdahl.
