Wolfenstein: The New Order will re-imagine id’s first-person classic on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 later this year. Bethesda teased the title overnight, but has now officially confirmed the shooter. The release is in development at MachineGames, a studio comprising of ex-Starbreeze veterans.

"We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere," said creative director Jens Matthies. "As fans of the series, working on this game is an honour, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud."
