Wolfenstein: The New Colossus Teased as Part of Bethesda’s E3 Presser


Bethesda teased a new Wolfenstein game during the intro to their E3 press conference.

When Bethesda’s E3 press conference kicked off tonight, it did so with a screen showing someone typing their way into a BE3 directory in DOS. A sharp-eyed NeoGAF user named antitrop spotted something interesting in the directories shown: a listing (shown below) for what appears to be the next game in the Wolfenstein series.

Below directories labeled “Wolf3D 05-05-92,” “New_Order 05-20-14,” and “Old_Blood 05-05-15,” you can clearly see a directory labeled “New_Colossus **-**-**.” Obviously, those names are the previous Wolfenstein titles, and the dates are their corresponding release dates.

We had heard rumors of a new Wolfenstein game being announced at E3, but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Bethesda held something back to provide some excitement at Quakecon, their own massive convention coming up in August. This tease, plus the previous rumors, makes it seem awfully likely that we could see more from B.J. Blazkowicz pretty soon.
