Dishonored and Wolfenstein will be back says Bethesda

Dishonored 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are both critically-acclaimed experiences, but they failed to break records when it came to sales. Due to this, many gamers thought that a sequel to Dishonored 2, or another chapter in the Wolfenstein saga, might've been put on hold.

In an interview between Metro GameCentral and Pete Hines, Bethesda's Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications, provided some answers. When Hines was asked about Wolfenstein III and the rumors that it was shelved, he said, "Absolutely we're making a Wolfenstein III. MachineGames said on stage that they're taking a break from the larger story to do Wolfenstein: Youngblood. But we all have to see how that ends."

His response to whether there would be another Dishonored game was even clearer. Hines stated the following.

I wouldn't read too much into that... Arkane has two studios, they're working on a number of things. That's no different than Todd Howard saying, 'I'm gonna make a Fallout game and then I'm gonna make Starfield before I go back to The Elder Scrolls 6.' He didn't say 'I'm never making another...' there's like, 'We have an idea for another thing here, we have an idea for another there.'

Hopefully this should put the rumors to rest. It's clear that the games won't be out for a number of years. Hopefully by that time Bethesda will figure out ways for them to appeal to more gamers.

  • I just hope they leave out all the social justice messaging from future Wolfenstein titles. The minute anyone opens their mouth one way or the other about politics, they alienate half their audience. One look at the user reviews for Wolfenstein II is proof, and their goal should always be to sell the most copies possible.
  • The game is about killing Nazis. It will always remain about killing Nazis. The fact that the current American administration is founded on racism will always be the opposing side.
  • Minority unemployment is now the lowest it’s been in decades. That’s a traceable statistical fact. If this was an administration “founded in racism”, they’re doing the worst job ever at creating disadvantages for minorities and creating a racist state. Was Trump founded in racism when he received an award from Jesse Jackson for his pioneering in hiring minorities for managerial roles in his businesses back in the 90’s? He still had the same messages then that he does now. As a matter of fact, there’s video of him as far back as the late 70’s saying everything he says now, and everybody loved him. He was on Oprah in the 80’s saying it all. Hell, Bill Clinton said everything Trump says now back when he was in office. I’ll grant you that he’s extremely rough around the edges, but simply labeling an administration you disagree with racist, and thus the people that support his platform racist, is flimsy and narrow minded when the actual policies and trends they created directly contradict your slanderous branding. And while we’re at it, the rhetoric of even insinuating that a segment of society is Nazis because Hillary lost an election is what’s responsible for quite a bit of violence people are suffering today. You should be more mindful of what you put out there, because you never know who’s paying attention. You should aspire to be better than that.
  • I don't recall anyone other than Donald Trump saying Mexicans are rapists or that all Muslims regardless of citizenship should be banned from America or that we shouldn't worry about "bullshit countries" or that Europe is our "foe" or .... really ******* anything Donald Trump says. You have to have your head way up your ass to think what Trump says is anything like what other politicians say; you have to have it even further up there to think he's not a racist.
  • Actually what you're saying is the goal should be to not trigger the insecurities of bigoted white men. That's what you're saying.
  • I agree, the Fat Acceptance in the storyline was the straw that broke the camel's back.
  • lol
  • I really enjoyed Wolfenstein II The New Colossus. It gave me an idea of another game I'd like to see them do. A game based in the US where the Civil War was won by the southern states confederate army. The hero will be fighting in similar fashion as Blazkowicz did in Wolfenstein working with the resistance to combat the evil that has spread and taken over the US. Maybe even tie it in as a very very very early prequal to Wolfenstein. That part may be a bit of a stretch. But yeah, I think that would make for some interesting gameplay. Might have to play it as a more stealthy game considering the time and weapons available. Just a thought.
  • But that story would be kind of lame. Even if the slavers from the south had won all that would have happened is those states doing whatever they wanted.
