Bethesda announced today that MachineGames (who works under them) is currently developing the next installment in the Wolfenstein franchise and is set to hit on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PCs sometime in Q4 of 2013. The game is set in an alternate reality where the Nazis won WWII, which explains why you’re still fighting them in the 60s.

All I know is that, I worked my ass off in the previous Wolfenstein games to defeat the Nazis…and now they’ve won. Well that sucks.
