In a recent interview, MachineGames, the authors of Wolfenstein’s reboot series currently working on the Youngblood series spin-off, discussed the future of Swedish software hose at Bethesda Softworks.
After experimenting with the co-op in Wolfenstein Youngblood (co-developed with Arkane Studios, authors of Prey and Dishonored), MachineGames seems extremely interested in expanding the concept of multiplayer in its next titles. This was stated by studio executive producer Jerk Gustafsson on VentureBeat microphones:
“We’re talking about it, to be honest. This is the first time we have done something online, especially from scratch. We had very poor results when we worked on Riddick and The Darkness, but this is the first game where we really focused on this I look like MachineGames. We really like to play cooperatively with this fighting system that we’ve been adopting for so many years.
“I’m pretty sure that whatever we do in the future, it will have an online component, “ he continued. “You’ll be able to play with your friends. That being said, what I think is equally important – a really important aspect for me personally – is that a MachineGames title will always allow you to play solo. This is an important thing for us. So I’m pretty sure we’ll find the right joint”.
Wolfenstein Youngblood will be available on PC from 25 July, and on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch from 26 July, and will also be included in the Google Stadia launch line-up. Remember that on the same day Wolfenstein Cyberpilot, the franchise’s first VR title, will also arrive.
