id: No Hitler in Wolfenstein

This is rubbish. id’s confirmed to Destructoid that Hitler won’t be appearing in Raven’s imminent Wolfenstein thanks to timeline issues.

“No,” said community manager Peter Sokol, “in this game there will be no Hitler. We love ‘Mecha Hitler.’ Obviously, he’s one of the classic bad guys in videogames. It’s so famous in Wolf 3D when you finally killed him off, but this time around… it takes place after the events of Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

“So, we wanted to expand on that story, make it a lot deeper story arc this time around. For the story we were trying to tell this time, it just didn’t really fit to have Hitler and Mecha Hitler in the game.”

Look, Peter. We want to shoot Hitler in the face. Can’t you just raise him from the dead, or something?

The game’s out this “summer”.
