Update: Amazon have taken down the store posting for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
The starting pistol was probably fired too early on this one, as the posting lacked any box art or additional details besides the release date. Expect a full posting following Bethesda’s E3 conference on Sunday.

Original story: Leaks here, leaks there, leaks coming from everywhere. While a new Wolfenstein is almost assured to be at Bethesda’s E3 press conference, an entry on Amazon.de suggests that a sequel to The New Order could be coming sooner than expected.
Titled ‘Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus’, the game is set to launch on October 27. If this posting turns out to be correct, October 27 looks to be quite the busy day, as Assassin’s Creed: Origins is set to release on that day as well.
This October release date is certainly not out of the question, as developer Machine Games have been working on what is mostly likely The New Colossus for quite a while now. Bethesda’s VP of marketing Pete Hines called it “fucking bananas” in an interview back in February and it was also hinted at during the opening of last year’s E3 conference, so Machine Games haven’t exactly rushed the game to market.
Based on the press invitation for Bethesda’s E3 conference, there is still one other game that will be announced at the show. Based on leaks and other rumours, the consensus is that it will be a sequel to Shinji Mikami’s survival horror, The Evil Within.
Again, remember the usual E3 disclaimer that any leak before the show could be a mistake, a wild fabrication or ever-so slightly wrong. While it’s almost impossible that The New Colossus won’t be at Bethesda’s press conference, the date shown in this Amazon entry may be a placeholder at this time.
If anything changes before Bethesda’s press conference, we’ll let you know. Otherwise, you may want to add ‘The New Colossus release date’ to your E3 bingo card.
