Wolfenstein The New Order dev has 'a very clear idea' for potential sequel

Creative director wants to continue working on the series

MachineGames has said it's interested in doing a sequel to the recently released - and well received - Wolfenstein: The New Order.

In an interview with Giant Bomb, creative director Jens Matthies said the studio has "a very, very clear idea" of what it would like to accomplish with a sequel.


"We would love to do a sequel," said Matthies. "We have a very, very clear idea of what we accomplished with this game, and what we want to accomplish with a sequel."

Asked what the Swedish studio learned from working on The New Order, Matthies said: "I wouldn't say there was...I wish there was one big lesson. It's more like 500 smaller ones.

"This is kind of an abstract, but because these projects are so long in terms of development-this was three-and-a-half years for this game-and given how long it takes to make a game these days, this kind of game, and whenever you design in terms of preproduction, what becomes the plan for all of those years, has to be a flawlessly polished diamond.

"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."

CVG's Wolfenstein: The New Order review called the game "big and ballsy but with the brains to back it up".

Those who pre-ordered Wolfenstein The New Order will receive access to the upcoming Doom beta, which will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
