Want a Wolfenstein: The New Order sequel? So does its developer

Tuesday, 24th June 2014 12:35 GMT By Dave Cook

Wolfenstein: The New Order was well-received by critics and gamers alike, and it seems that developer Machine Games already has an idea of where it wants to take the series next.

Speaking with Giant Bomb, creative director Jens Matthies said, “We would love to do a sequel. We have a very, very clear idea of what we accomplished with this game, and what we want to accomplish with a sequel.”

When asked what lessons Machine Games learned from The New Order’s development, Matthies replied, “It’s not like it’s one lesson. You learn things constantly, and there’s no switch that you don’t want to keep trying to dial a little higher. I wouldn’t say there was… I wish there was one big lesson. It’s more like 500 smaller ones. [laughs]

He stressed that given how long games like The New Order take to make there is less room to push out a shoddy product. He said that if it’s not a polished diamond, “you end up paying for that further down the line. You have to react to it, change, and do stuff.

“I think we were able to polish that diamond a lot more than we have ever been able to in the past, but we still have new ideas for how we can polish it even further. If there is one grand lesson, it’s probably that: to take pre-production even one step further. After the next game, it’ll be the same thing again and again. [laughs]”

Were you happy with how Wolfenstein: The New Order turned out?

    Been enjoying this title on PS4, nothing mind blowing but a refreshing take on a common genre.

    Would like to see multiplayer for more longevity and because I think New Order’s gameplay would suit.

    ^ Exactly – could have had longevity with MP included. Finished it over a weekend then sold it.

    As said MP would be good, but nothing like the basic shite in the 2009 one. We need the RTCW one, with classes and interesting maps. RTCW along with BF1942 created more or less the mainstream class based MP and we can definetly get a new one with some of the New Order gameplay mechanics.

    I would totally buy it, if it wouldn’t waste so much space on my harddrive.

    This game was a fucking gem & I would love a sequel.

    Great world, great characters & quality voice acting, YoungZero stop being a plum, buy it, clock it & delete the file.
