Bethesda Softworks today announced that it has established a long-term development partnership with Splash Damage, the studio behind class-based multiplayer shooters Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars.
No details were disclosed, though Bethesda assured that more information will be released in the coming months.
“We are extremely impressed with Splash Damage and the quality titles they produce,” said Bethesda Softworks president Vlatko Andonov. “They are highly creative and innovative, and have demonstrated a high level of dedication to their projects.”
An awesome Enemy Territory: Quake Wars launch trailer has been released. Running for over two minutes, the trailer shows in-game cinematic footage. Check it out below:
On the official Enemy Territory: Quake Wars forums is a release date for the demo of the upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter. According to the post, the demo is due next Monday: “The Windows PC demo is going to be released on September 10, 2007.”
Gamespy’s Enemy Territory: Quake Wars developer diary reveals that the highly anticipated multiplayer shooter has been delayed to next year.
It’s also been a challenging year, as the team here has given extraordinary effort towards completing the game this year. Unfortunately, sometimes effort isn’t all you need — sometimes you just need more time. To ensure the quality we want, we’ve decided to push the release out of 2006 to allow for extended testing, feedback and game balancing.
