MachineGames’ Jens Matthies has revealed that multiplayer will not be featured in the forthcoming shooter, Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Speaking with GameSpot, Matthies confirmed that the title will stick to the series' single-player roots.
"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."
"On a personal level, I played this when I was younger and it was mind-blowing," Matthies added. "I never then of course dreamed that I was going to be working with it. It's both an honor and a legacy."
Due out on current and next-generation consoles, The New Order is set in an alternate history circa 1960, which depicts a world where the Nazis emerged victorious in World War II.
Taking control of hero William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, gamers battle legions of Nazis across Europe and infiltrate enemy strongholds, in what is described as an “impossible counter-offensive” against the Nazi powers.
