Bethesda Teases a Brand New Game

Published 1 year ago by

New Bethesda Game

The entire video game industry has been incredibly busy as of late, and that doesn’t come as much of a surprise with E3 just over a month away and the next-generation of consoles on the verge of emerging. One these developers, Bethesda, seems to have a solid string of titles currently under development — the latest of which was confirmed to be a horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami called The Evil Within — and now the company has already begun teasing another new title.

Bethesda took to Twitter today to kick off its new viral marketing campaign for a currently unnamed project; releasing three new screenshots that allude to the identity of the title in the process.

Bethesda’s official Twitter post (as can be seen above) simply provides a single image that meshes three screenshots together, but the mention of GameSpot alerted individuals who wanted to get a better look at each image in their entirety to check out the site. After poking around, the trifecta of game pics can be discovered, but there’s still not enough evidence in any of them to definitively tell gamers just what Bethesda may be hinting at.

A good bet would be a new Wolfenstein title from the developers at ZeniMax Sweden (formerly MachineGames), as that project was accidentally confirmed by composer Julian Beeston. That said, this title could end up being anything, but a new iteration of the Wolfenstein property, which was originally created by the ZeniMax-owned iD Software, is the most likely candidate at this point in time.

Apparently there’s also something special about the number 1960, as it can be found at the bottom of each of the three images. Given that each of the images have been labelled Z1960, Y1960, and X1960 by GameSpot, the next logical step would be W1960 — or Wolfenstein 1960. This is of course just speculation, but it’s definitely not far fetched given the names of each image.

With E3 2013 on the horizon, not to mention Microsoft’s May 21st Xbox 720 event, an official reveal can’t be that far off. In the meantime, stay tuned to Game Rant for more details regarding Bethesda’s new project.

What do you think the new Bethesda title is? Would you be excited for a new Wolfenstein?

  1. If it isn’t Fallout 4 (and I think there is a chance that it is), Bethesda can just shut up. ;)

    • I’d be down for a next-gen Fallout!

    • I think Beth already said that this tease wasn’t related to anything their personal development studio is doing.

    • It isn’t Bethesda Game Studios teasing the announcement, it is Bethesda Softworks. The game is most likely Wolfenstein or Prey 2.

    • :O What about Elder Scrolls?

      Honestly though, my most anticipated game is the next Fallout. I’m right there with you.

  2. Fallout 4 or im not interested.

  3. Wolfenstein would definitely make a lot of sense but I would love if it was Prey 2. The pics would sort of fit Prey 2. But totally cool for a new title.

  4. hmm Defiantly something robotic.

  5. Its Wolfenstein The New Order. An announcement trailet was just released and it looks like the screenshots above.

  6. Its Wolfenstein The New Order. An announcement trailer was just released and it looks like the screenshots above.

  7. that is reminding me of HAL 9000
