Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, a digital-only demi-sequel in the vein of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon or Saints Row 4: Gat Out of Hell, gave fans another taste of the fun, Nazi-blasting action they came to love in the excellent Wolfenstein: The New Orderwhetting appetites for a proper sequel. According to one of the game’s voice actors, that sequel is in the works. Polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curus, who played Anya Oliwa in Wolfenstein: The New Order, revealed in an interview with Polish television that she’s working on the sequel to an American video game that she previously starred in. And the only one on her resume is The New Order.

Here is the relevant segment of the interview, as translated on

TVN: Apart from the movie, on set of which we are now, are there any professional challenges waiting ahead of you?

Alicja: Yes, I’m still working on a computer game; I already did the first part, now we’re working on the second one, and it will take roughly two years.

TVN: You’re obviously doing it in the US?

Alicja: Yes, we’re doing it in the US.

In case there was any doubt about what the project in question is, at another point in the interview she mentions that as a child she enjoyed playing the game’s early iterations  from the 80s and 90s, particularly  “the moment when she could shoot Hitler.” At the time of this writing there has been no official announcement of the game. According to her timeline, though, we should expect the sequel to arrive no sooner than late 2017.

Starting as a series of WWII-set side-scrolling action/stealth games in the 80s, id Software took over the franchise in 1992 with Wolfenstein 3D, one of the earliest and most influential first-person shooters that established many of the conventions that id would further develop the following year with Doom. The franchised changed hands a few more times before falling to MachineGames, under the aegis of Bethesda, for 2014’s surprise hit Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Handheld gaming has come back in a big way this past generation. Nintendo formerly held the crown as the king of the dedicated handheld market with its unfathomably successful DS line, which would eventually combine into a home console with the equally impressive Switch. PlayStation attempted to get into this market with the PSP and PS Vita but appeared to bow out of that competition when the latter failed to achieve much success. However, the new PlayStation Portal device could provide players with an alternative to Nintendo's aging system.
