Bethesda Softworks has announced today that they are working on a new re-imagining of Wolfenstein called Wolfenstein: The New Order. The action-adventure shooter will be out in Q4 2013. With the announcement comes a teaser trailer.

So who will be developing the new game based on the franchise that helped launch the first-person shooter genre? That honor goes MachineGames, a Swedish studio formed by former founding members of Starbreeze Studios (The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay).
