Machine Games already planning a sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order

Though not officially greenlit, MachineGames is already hard at work planning a sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order.

“We would love to do a sequel,” MachineGames’ Creative Director Jens Matthies said to Giant Bomb earlier in the week. “We have a very, very clear idea of what we accomplished with this game, and what we want to accomplish with a sequel.”

Matthies said a lot of effort would be put into pre-planning of the sequel. “Because these projects are so long in terms of development — this was three-and-a-half years for [The New Order] — 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,” Matthies explained.

“If it isn’t, you end up paying for that further down the line. You have to react to it, change, and do stuff,” he continued.
