Wolfenstein 3 Confirmed

Pete Hines of Bethesda has confirmed that Wolfenstein 3 is surely in works while Youngblood will come as a spin-off.

Last year, developer Machine Games and publisher Bethesda Softworks released Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the latest installment of the widely popular action-adventure first-person shooter series.

Though started from Castle Wolfenstein in 1981, the franchise took a soft reboot to change the course of timeline in 2014 with Wolfenstein: The New Order. Bethesda has recently confirmed for worrying fans of the series worldwide that Wolfenstein III is definitely happening.

Over the course of more than three decades of history, the series spawned many sequels and took at least two reboots. This year at E3 press conference, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is revealed through a brand-new trailer for 2019, where twins Jessica and Sophia Blazkowicz, daughters of series protagonist William "B.J." Blazkowicz takes the wheel.

Since the story is set in a future where BJ is missing, many fans thought that the Blazkowicz daughter would carry the torch from now on.

However, they can rest assured that Youngblood is just a standalone spinoff title and not a mainline release. Other than that, Vice president of global marketing and communications for Bethesda, Pete Hines have revealed in a recent interview with Metro that they are indeed on board with Wolfenstein III.

With Youngblood, the studio is just taking a break from larger story at this time, nothing else. We are pretty sure that fans of the Nazi-slaying franchise would really appreciate that.

Many fans have raised their concerns when Wolfenstein II had to deal with somewhat average sales and wondered that the series may have come to an end or on the verge of another reboot. Hines agreed that definitely the title could have done a lot better than it did but they are still bringing BJ Blazkowicz back in action.

In past, other single-player games from the company like Dishonored and Prey were met with lesser than expected sales and is currently on hold though.

On that note, they stated that Arkane Studios is busy with a number of other projects at this moment and Bethesda has a number of upcoming titles like Doom Eternal, Fallout 76 and RAGE 2 in pipeline before they get busy with the long-awaited Starfield.

Despite confirmation from Pete Hines, we need some official announcement just to be sure about their claim. So, we are eagerly waiting now for Walmart Canada or any other leaked sources to help us dig some more about it.
