Wolfenstein delayed two weeks

Wolfenstein fans have waited six years for a new installment in the supernatural World War II first-person shooter series. Now Activision has confirmed they'll have to wait a couple weeks more.

"In order to facilitate a simultaneous global release window for id Software's Wolfenstein, Activision has realigned the game's release date for the week beginning August 17," a representative with the publisher told GameSpot.

In May, the publisher announced an August 4 release date for the new Wolfenstein on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Developed by Raven Software (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Singularity), Wolfenstein drops players into the army boots of B.J. Blazkowicz, who is once again sent behind enemy lines to thwart Hitler's occult ambitions. For this go-around, players will be able to fight fire with fire, using the power of a sought-after artifact to combat Hitler's own freakish army of evil.
