E3 2017: Bethesda Predictions

Wolfenstein: The New Colussus

The Wolfenstein series made a return in 2009 with a reboot. It was met with decent reviews, but the series was far from back to its iconic status.

So in 2013, when a sequel was announced by Bethesda, not too many people were on the edge of their seats. Wolfenstein: The New Order then released in May 2014 and received surprisingly great reviews. The game suffered from a flat-out bad first level, but from there on it was a fantastic shooter with great mechanics, an emotional story, impressive visuals, and a cliffhanger ending.

Last year at E3, Bethesda showed a fake cmd.exe screen with DOS language on it, which showed the names of a few Wolfenstein games throughout history and their release dates. Fans quickly pointed to an unknown title beneath The Old Blood, titled The New Colossus, with no release date. It seems inevitable this is the new game in the Wolfenstein series, which VP Pete Hines has called "fu*king bananas".

I would expect The New Colossus to play a major role at this year's E3, and I would also expect a release date for next year. I think both this and The Evil Within 2 are games we can expect to play soon -- but that's all speculation, we should find out the actual release dates on June 11.
