Bethesda Softworks has announced that those looking forward to their Wolfenstein reboot will now have to wait until the awfully vague release window of 2014. The shooter was initially slated for release this holiday season.
Citing cross gen development as one of the reasons for the delay, Bethesda’s Pete Hines had he following to say in a statement to Polygon:
“Working on next-gen and current gen definitely has an impact, you’re developing for two different things. The fact that the next-gen stuff is still moving is also definitely a factor.”
But the most important thing was definitely just looking where it was at, what they needed to polish. Because it’s just not trying to be a shooter, because it’s trying to be a shooter that also has driving elements, story elements, narrative, stealth sections — each one of those has to be excellent. It’s not just like we’re making a shooter, where if the shooting is good, then all 16 hours of the game will be good because it’s all we’re doing.
Wolfenstein: The New Order is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
