Wolfenstein: The New Order has been delayed. Originally scheduled for this holiday, the upcoming shooter has been pushed to 2014.

Developing for both current and next-gen consoles is one reason for the delay, Bethesda's Pete Hines explained. "Working on next-gen and current gen definitely has an impact, you're developing for two different things. The fact that the next-gen stuff is still moving is also definitely a factor," he said.

Ultimately, Hines says that the game simply needed more "polish," telling Polygon that "because it's trying to be a shooter that also has driving elements, story elements, narrative, stealth sections--each one of those has to be excellent. It's not just like we're making a shooter, where if the shooting is good, then all 16 hours of the game will be good because it's all we're doing."

No word on when in 2014 it will hit.
