I will admit, a new Wolfenstein does not appeal to me at all, but I don’t really have anything negative to say about it.  However, Mr. Spector is a little more vocal about the idea.

“Did the world really need another Wolfenstein game? Did we need a generically dark, monochromatic, FPS, kill-the-Nazi-giant-robot game? Uh. No. The world did not. I am so tired of stuff like this.

“You’re welcome to write off my opinions but I have a right to express complaints about people recycling work as old as I am. I’m allowed to complain about the difficulty of getting new stuff green lit — new IP, new game styles and so on given my perspective as someone who’s constantly fighting the pressure to ‘just make a shooter.’

“And given the venom aimed at Disney Epic Mickey by people with no concern for how hard the team worked I don’t think I need any lectures about that. I know how hard developers work — better than most people — but I wish all that effort were spent on something that pointed toward gaming’s future rather than looking toward our past.”

-Warren Spector

According to Bethesda, “The game Wolfenstein: The New Order is slated to release sometime between October and December of this year for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well as “next generation consoles.  Although the Wii U is not mentioned specifically, it is a “next generation console”, So I would imagine we will see it.

Do you agree with Warren Spector, or do you believe he is overreacting a bit?
