Tonight during Bethesda’s E3 briefing, the company officially announced the next Wolfenstein game. As rumored, it’s called Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and it’s coming this year.
Series hero BJ Blazkowicz returns, and it looks every bit as big and bloody as the first game. An impressive and in-depth first trailer was shown during the briefing.
The New Colossus launches on October 27, presumably for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
A new Wolfenstein game was teased during Bethesda’s press conference at E3 last year. A screen was showed that listed a number of previously released games and their release dates. Following the most recent two Wolfenstein titles was something called New Colossus with asterisks in place of a date, suggesting it’s a game still to come. A Wolfenstein voice actor subsequently suggested that it might be in the works.
