Wolfenstein: The New Order delayed until 2014

Bethesda "felt it deserved some additional time for polish."

First-person Nazi-shooting romp, Wolfenstein: The New Order, has been delayed until next year, Bethesda has announced.

Previously it was set for Q4 2013 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC.

"We have confirmed today at QuakeCon that Wolfenstein will ship next year, all platforms," said Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines on Twitter. "Felt it deserved some additional time for polish," he added.

This may seem unfortunate, but one can't begrudge Bethesda for sticking to its guns on this one, just as it decided to release the upcoming shooter with no multiplayer, something practically unheard of in this day and age. Even stranger, this is in a series that used to have multiplayer, but developer MachineGames is made up of several ex-Starbreeze staff who worked on The Darknesss and The Chronicles of Riddick, both games that were almost entirely lauded for their single-player components.
