The rumors of a sequel to 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order continue to swirl. First, Alicja Bachleda-Curus, the voice actress for Anya, told a Polish TV station that a sequel was in the works. Then, we got a few rumors that the game would be revealed at E3. When E3 hit, publisher Bethesda said nothing, but something called New Colossus with **-**-**** release date popped up in a teaser DOS screen of the company's titles. Now the voice of B.J. Blazkowicz himsef is chiming in.
In an interview with Two Left Sticks, Brian Bloom said that he couldn't offer much, so he played it safe. "If you look at Bethesda’s E3 2016 lineup, there was a title hinted at in a cool way," he said. "It sparked a bit of wildfire. That subtle, very simple DOS language, going through the titles. Perhaps we’re working on that as we speak.”
The fate of Blazkowicz was unknown at the end of The New Order, but Bloom said that whatever is next, B.J. will still be B.J. "”Whoever B.J. Blaskowicz was, in the content we have so far, he’s the articulation of a promise not kept; a country that surrendered while he was in a coma. He’s fighting a war on his own with a very small group of people, completely outgunned and out-manned. A world taken over by scourge of racism, nazism, and fascism.”
Bethesda and developer MachineGames were not listed in the companies that could be affected by a possible voice actors strike looming this Friday, so any work that Bloom may be doing on a sequel should be able to continue unabated.
Bloom is also voicing Capt. Reyes in the upcoming Call of Duty: Infinte Warfare, set for release November 4.
