Castle Wolfenstein confirmed
Activision has finally confirmed the fact that Return to Castle Wolfenstein will be coming to the Playstation 2 and Xbox. Raster Productions is the developer for RTCW and id Software is the executive producer. The original PC version was developed by Gray Matter, but the console version will possess most of the same distinguishing characteristics.
"Return to Castle Wolfenstein has quickly become the most critically acclaimed and widely played action shooter of 2001, and we're thrilled to bring the Wolfenstein experience to a new generation of gamers," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software. "We're working with Raster on a number of technical and design modifications that will provide Xbox and PlayStation 2 owners a definitive gaming experience that is designed and built for their systems."
"The Quake III Arena engine coupled with the power of these next generation gaming systems creates a remarkable synergy that will serve as the benchmark for future action-shooter games," states Larry Goldberg, executive vice president of Activision Worldwide Studios.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein will be released sometime in the fall of 2002, however, no official date has been set.
