Wolfenstein: The New Order Has Been Delayed
Wolfenstein: The New Order was announced in May, as a first-person-shooter that will “reimagine” the series. Bethesda announced that they want to offer a “gripping and dramatic experience”, where we sincerely hope that the game can better what the previous release offered in 2009.
Following the game’s announcement, Bethesda has revealed that The New Order will not include multiplayer. While it seems as if the publisher seems to be breaking the common trend of the industry, in reality more and more games seem to be releasing without multiplayer aspects. It feels that developers are starting to understand how multiplayer works and why it should be added. Dedicated resources to the singleplayer aspect is greatly appreciated–as opposed to a division between both single- and multiplayer.

The latest news concerning The New Order states that the game has been delayed. With that, the game is re-confirmed to launch on all platforms–next year. Does all platforms include Xbox 360 and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4?
“We have confirmed today at QuakeCon that Wolfenstein will ship next year, all platforms. Felt it deserved some additional time for polish,” Bethesda VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines said on Twitter.
And to answer the aforementioned question: Yes. Yes, The New Order will be available on both current- and next-generation consoles. The development on both forms of technology has created a few problems and that is why MachineGames is looking to extend the launch by a few months to make sure the game is as good as it can be.
“MachineGames has been working on this game for a while,” Hines told Polygon. “You don’t want to waste all that time and effort for the sake of a couple of months, if a couple of months could make all of the difference in the world.”
A delay of a few months is for the best, it seems.
