Wolfenstein: The New Order will not feature multiplayer

MachineGames creative director wants Wolfenstein legacy untainted

Wolfenstein: The New Order will not feature multiplayer, according to MachineGames creative director Jens Matthies.


Speaking to Gamespot, Matthies said the decision to skip multiplayer was part of the studio's efforts not to taint the legacy of the Wolfenstein series.

"It's such a huge part of video game legacy," he said. "If there's a video game museum, Wolfenstein is in the first room. It's the start of the wave that shaped the world of gaming."

Wolfenstein: The New Order was announced earlier this week for most consoles, including PS3, Xbox 360, PC and "next-gen consoles". It's developed by MachineGames, a studio comprised of former key employees of Starbreeze.

The first set of official screenshots were released yesterday.
