Another Wolfenstein game will be out by the end of this year, publisher Bethesda Softworks has announced.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is the debut title for MachineGames - an Uppsala, Sweden-based studio comprised of former members of Starbreeze (Riddick, The Darkness, Syndicate), including that studio's founder Magnus Hogdah.

The New Order's story will take place in alternate reality 1960s Europe, and will once again feature BJ Blazkowicz fighting supercharged Nazi forces, including massive robots.

According to Bethesda, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a reimagining of the franchise.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC, and "next generation consoles".

Bethesda vice president Pete Hines suggested on Twitter that "next-gen consoles" could include the Wii U.

Wolfenstein 3D - released in 1992 - was widely credited as the game that established and popularised the first-person shooter genre.
