This article is a stub, an article too short to provide more than rudimentary information about a subject. You can help Wolfenstein Wiki by expanding it.
The current expanding timeline of Wolfenstein Games from MachineGames "Dark Alternate Future" reboot. Some details are expanded upon in Quake Champions.

BackgroundEdit

Old Blood and New Order makes certain retcons that may not necessarily fit entirely with Return to Castle Wolfenstein or even Wolfenstein. Such as history elements concerning reimagined "Castle Wolfenstein" itself (it's location and history), Wesley, Kessler, more primitive Super Soldiers (than even those seen in RTCW), changes to geography where Castle Wolfenstein is located, in relation to Paderborn/Wulfburg villages, etc. As such some of these references may seem to be more like homages, nods, in-jokes, and easter eggs to older sources, rather than straight continuity references.

Very little of Wolfenstein was utilized as part of the plot of Wolfenstein: The New Order.

"...we asked him if the last Activision Wolfenstein game had any bearing on their version to which he replied, "No it does not. We try not to include that game as part of our story. Personally, I think that Activision did a crap job." [1].

In fact RTCW itself was published by Activision and was under their direction and may fall under this criticism (though Old Blood itself makes many nods to the game, but reimagines them) or has new characters inspired by characters in the original game (sharing their names and similar outcomes) but portrayed in a different light. Several sources claim that Old Blood is sort of a retelling of RTCW[1]. , and this may very well be true as several characters from the original game are reimagined or renamed, function in a similar manner, and even often die in the same way in both games. (Richard Wesley/Webley, Helga von Schabbs/Helga von Bulow (she is also a bit of Dr. Schabbs, and Heinrich Himmler), Otto I/Heinrich I, The Monstrosity/Olaric/Heinrich I, Ludwig Kessler/Kessler, Emmerich Schreiner/Zemph). The locations of RTCW which the game shares have all been moved to a different part of Germany, with many of the backstories similar but attributed to Otto I rather than Heinrich I. For example, the Old Blood portrays Helga von Schabbs as the ancestral owner of Castle Wolfenstein, and a descendant of Otto I. In Return to Castle Wolfenstein, it was Heinrich Himmler who was the owner of Castle Wolfenstein, and portrayed as a descendant of Heinrich I.

The events of RTCW X-Labs occur later in the timeline even as far later as 1944. Caroline's birthdate is two years older than she was in the Wolfenstein (her birthdate moved back to 1920), some of her backstories are changed. B.J's birthday is August 11 or August 15 depending on the version of the game.

Wolfenstein (Wolf2) posted 1944 in the original timeline as indicated on blueprints found in the game that discuss formation of the Atomic Corps is past tense "44" (possibly as late as 1947, a date that appears on a map in the game), MG Games universe begins in 1946, and places a version of Wolf2's events approximately in 1944, possibly not long after the X-labs event.

In fact, the designers claimed to be more of a fan of the original games in the series instead (Wolfenstein 3D/Spear of Destiny) and there are nods and callbacks to those games as well. They even claim that the series is a continuation from the original series (though obviously they do not follow the original games endings).

Machine Games series appears to ignore the more 'supernatural' aspects of previous games in the series for a more science fiction approach (and explanations), even when it touches on concepts of 'ancient technologies' and the idea of reanimated corpses (Old Blood). Due to this only the dates or references to events specifically confirmed in MachineGames reboot universe are listed in this timeline.

This timeline should focus on dates and details specifically confirmed by MG series. As exact dates and references from alternate canons cannot be considered reliable.

Wolfenstein 3D appears to have occured in this timeline but apparently ended with William Blazcowicz's capture by Hitler, and attempted strangulation/hanging. But he survived and escaped, though thought dead. This is another point where this universe deviated from the classic universes.

For dates specific to RTCW or Wolfenstein (2009) see RTCW timeline and FRBS timeline (Activision related timelines)

Quake Champions (an iD software developed game) includes the B.J. Blazkowicz from the MG universe, and his Biographical Lore actually adds and fills in some of the gaps to his life from his training to his missions, and even setting some dates for this universe's version of Isenstadt events. Although it does make further changes and reasoning behind Isenstadt mission much differently. In this universe Tirpitz does not appear to be involved, B.J. was on a seperate mission to discover plans for a VTOL bomb technology, and is lead to Isenstadt where he discovers a different plan altogether. The Black Sun Dimension is reintroduced into information, but the exact details appear to be much compressed from the events of the game. More interestingly it sets the events in November 1944.

Riots and Resistance activities continue to intensify across the US causing the enforcement of the Change Over Day to go into disarray as a majority of US people continue to throw Molotov Cocktails and IED at Nazi police stations and outposts. Furthermore, massive prison breaks caused by the American Resistance network increases the number of recruitment in the Network and forces the Nazi to completely abandon their presence in the Ghetto to have more manpower to fend for themselves, flee or evacuate against the rising strength of the Resistance movement.The surviving phenomenon of B.J. from Irene's decapitation strikes deep fear into the rank of the Nazi and he also attains somewhat legendary status in the Global Resistance Movement in which some US people now calls him the Angel of Death. Furthermore, the Nazi begins to finish the construction of the Sun Gun to quell out the American Resistance in the midwest. Their attempt gets into disarray due to the intervention of Gunslinger Joe and Captain Gerald Wilkins.

NotesEdit

New Order/Old Blood/New Colossus notesEdit

  • In an apparent retcon, BJ mentions he was 32 during events of RTCW (which in the original game was set March, 1943, when he was still 31). His birthday is in August during events of New Colossus. This means X-Labs events had to have been retconned into either after August, 1943 or before August, 1944. Perhaps even merged with the events of Wolfenstein 2009. This maybe in part due to the date given on the Recon Maps in the RTCW strategy guides, which give the date for the recon maps as having been made in July 1944.
  • The first two games mention the X-Labs incident. But nothing about any of the other events from RTCW (other than he hidout in a Wulfsburg safehouse after contacting Ludwig Kessler though they never met), and very little from Wolfenstein.
  • Klaus's tattoos list 33, and 41 respectively, indicating campaigns he must have taken part in.
  • Fergus Reid mentions that they have been searching for years to have another confrontation with Wilhelm Strasse. Technically if the dating in Wolfenstein (2009) was taken into consideration the OSA had a confrontation with him only a little over or less than a year before. If he is being accurate then the game must be placing the events at least two years before 1946 (in the 1944 period, even before the period when the RAF is destroyed). Considering the dating of X-labs, even that occurred roughly two years before.
  • While Webley (Agent One), an OSA agent from England was killed in the original Return to Castle Wolfenstein timeline, a doppleganger Richard Wesley from Wales (though he is at least called twice as Englishman by nazis) appears in The Old Blood much alive and well. It's unclear if they are intended to be the same person or simply the game making a nod to names from the previous games much like with Helga Von Schabbs. But this could indeed indicate another change/retcon/reimagining from a previous timeline. Perhaps it's possible that The Old Blood follows off of the RTCW co-op timeline events were Agent One escapes with B.J. and avoids being tortured.
  • Ludwig Kessler is a nod to the Kessler from RTCW, however, B.J. and Ludwig Kessler have never met in person until the events of the Old Blood. Kessler has apparently had contact with him over the radio however. This appears to be another reimagining, and reboot of the timeline. There is however a reference to BJ having been to the Wulfburg safehouse in the past (which maybe a reference to RTCW, he just never met Kessler there).
  • The only references to 2009 that appear are Kreisau Circle, an explanation of Anya's perceived 'death'/'disappearance', and references to Hans Grosse (2009)/Hans Grösse, and Strasse's involvement in Isenstadt. However, there is no direct references to the supernatural goings on, or Blac Sun/Veil energy.
  • The Old Blood contains many nods and references to characters, and locations from RTCW and Wolfenstein 3D.[27] However, many of them are reimagined or changed.
  • Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor was historically the son of Heinrich I, the villain of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, putting a familial connection between the villains of both games. Though there is little or no references to his father (or his father's actions). Though an image of his father in his younger years may be included in the paintings in the castle.
  • It is mentioned on Jan 12, 1946 that Hitler revisits Castle Wolfenstein. This maybe an offhand nod to the fact that Hitler was placed at Castle Wolfenstein in the Original Encounter and Mac Family campaign (a prologue to the original Wolfenstein 3D) campaign which had B.J. ultimately encountering and defeating Hitler twice in his lifetime. The Wolfenstein graphic novels also seemingly placed hitler's encounter at Castle Wolfenstein as well (but its less clear).
  • The Nightmare! levels in both New Order and Old Blood games portray B.J.'s memories of an escape and encounter with Hans Grösse in Wolfenstein 3D/3rd Encounter, the New Order even includes mission objective, journal information and narrative. The Old Blood versions are slightly more accurate to the original Wolfenstein 3D versions including more types of enemies including dogs and lieutenants (however, it uses 1946 era weapons and a silenced pistol unlike the weapons in the original game).
  • AH's postcard in The New Collosus Hitler talks about his Mecha-Hitler armor, and claims he defeated B.J., and captured him.
  • Old silver an item found throughout the nightmare levels (and unlock classic character data in the Extras menus) in The Old Blood are all dated to 1928. Placing the nightmare events post-1928. Though weapons are the 1946 era handguns and rifles, and unlikely be accurate to dating the events of the Nightmare, assuming Hans Grosse's first defeat (or at least an earlier one before events of Wolfenstein (2009)) had to have occured before 1945 (see RTCW timeline and/or Black Sun timeline). Or at least 1946 weapon prototypes existed in 1945. However a newspaper in The Old Blood would appear to place events of Original Encounter/2nd Encounter/Mac Family events in 1946, making the weapons dating a non-issue. However, it might also place the events of Wolfenstein 2009 in early 1946 as well (for the order of events of when Hans Grosse was first encountered vs. his death in Isenstadt, or perhaps its been reimagined that he survived Isenstadt and later defeated again at Castle Wolfenstein (in oposition to the graphic novels)).
  • Lil John music, Friday Oct. 7. The dates in which October 7 feel on a Friday between 1940 and 1961 include 1948, 1955, 1960.
  • Jazzing Orchestra at the Red Eye Goat, Monday, May 17th. (the only years between 1940 and 161 in which Monday falls on May 7 include 1943, 1948, 1954.) The poster could fit around 1948, before Nazis won the war. But the event would have to take place before the Nazis turned N.O. into a ghetto by building hte wall (4th May, 1952) and before the hurricane (so 1954 doesn't work, unless for a time musicians were able to still play Jazz back in 1954 inside the wall).
  • A newspaper in Mesquite has a famous quote from H.L. Menken this was originally published in 26, July, 1920 in the Baltimore Evening Sun.,
  • Wolfenstein Assassin Faces Execution

Berlin, 3 Jan. 1946 - It was the Führer himself who put the noose around the neck of the assassin known as "the Castle Wolfenstein terrorist" when he was executed Sunday morning.

Herr Hitler was in a fine mood having recovered remarkably well from the cowardly assassination attempt. As he was led into the execution chamber, the terrorist soiled himself when he saw our Führer in such good health. "Let this be a powerful reminder that all enemies of our great nation will meet a righteous end," said Herr Hitler after the assassin had stopped twitching where he hung on the rope. "It is time to quell the insidious rumors claiming that I was badly hurt by the terrorist and that he managed to escape. They were fabrications manufactured by our enemies. Everyone who is found to repeat these lies will face trial as traitors of the Reich."

Overlapping concepts and divergenceEdit

  • There are a number of ways where Old Blood seems to diverge from events of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, but share several ideas and concepts as well. There is a few nods to BJ having been to Wulfburg/Castle Wolfenstein on previous occasions (Wolf 3D, RTCW, etc), but certain characters from RTCW either are alive again, such as Richard Wesley (or it followed the co-op campaign where Wesley survived and helped BJ on every mission), or do not recognize him in the same way (Ludwig Kessler introduces himself to BJ for the first time, though there is some indication they have at least talked to each other over the radio before). While Kamfhounds seem to be a reference to X-shepherds, the 1946 Old Blood versions of Supersoldaten appear more primitive than those found late in RTCW in 1943.
  • While both New Order/Old Blood and Fourth Reich graphic novels suggest an alternate history diverging from WW2 (with a continuation of the war after 1945). They may both diverge at different points (or possibly overalp).
    • In New Order, Hitler was not killed in his bunker, but may have suffered a defeat according to Gamespot interview and a newspaper seen in the Old Blood (see above). A nightmare does hint that the start of Wolfenstein 3-D events may have occurred (there is some in game story and diaologue connected to it). By 1946 things have turned around in Germany's favor. The Nightmare levels in The Old Blood continues this trend up to Hans Grösse, and the Escape from Castle Wolfenstein. There is also a newspaper that discusses the attempt on Hitler's life by B.J..
    • In the Fourth Reich timeline Hitler suffers a 'major defeat' during Operation: Eisenfaust (assumed to be in 1945 corresponding to his actual date of death, but could refer to one of the other earlier attempts' on his life as well), leading to false idea that the war had ended. But the Nazis arose again under the Fourth Reich (under an unknown leadership), and the war continued. It is not specifically stated that Hitler was killed but that he had suffered a 'major defeat'.
      • Where they may diverge is the point when Wolfenstein (2009) took place either (this is presumably after Wolfenstein 3-D according to the graphic novels). On the one hand Wolfenstein (2009) does not give any specific dates (most references to the Reich refer to "Das Reich" (The Reich) or "Deutch Reich" (German Reich)) and there are already elements that suggest that its timeline already has diverged from actual WW2 history (SS Tirpitz) or continued existence of the Kreisau Circle, so either way it could have occurred before or after 1945 without much affect to the story or continuity.
    • There may be room for both timelines to overlap, but that would mean Wolf3D takes place before Wolfenstein 2009 (in whatever date the 2009 game takes place, but this is suggested by the Graphic novels as well).
      • Of what was utilized includes Caroline Becker (implied to have been killed in the 2009 game). Of course the return of Wilhelm Strasse (although his return could be seen as more direct reappearance to RTCW), and his technology is more reminiscent to the technology seen in RTCW (mechanical hounds and uber soldiers). Caroline punching Hans Grosse is briefly mentioned as well. The Kreisau Circle begins but it has existed since RTCW as well.
  • The Kreisau Circle is another element taken from history that exists in the Wolfenstein timelines in the ID universe, RTCW, New Order and the Fourth Reich timelines. Historically, it was a minor organization that dissolved on 19 January 1944, when its leader Moltke was arrested and the Kreisau Circle fell into disarray.
  • As mentioned the events of Wolfenstein 3D and attack on Hitler are referenced to various degrees in every timeline including the RTCW strategy guide, Wolfenstein (2009)/Graphic novels, Wolfenstein 3D Classic (where its an OSA mission) and reinterpreted in The Old Blood.
  • The escape from Castle Wolfenstein and battle with Hans Grosse is referenced in several games and several sources including a nod to it in the RTCW strategy guide, the Wolfenstien/Graphic novels, and The Old Blood. See also Wolfenstein 3D classic, where it was tied into the OSA/RTCW/Wolfenstein RPG/2009 games.
  • The exact date for when Hitler was attacked, and Eisenfaust events occurred are not given in the MachineGames series. A date '''February, 1945'' was given in Wolfenstein 3D Classic which was made after the Bethesda take over of the series but it is not known if it is considered valid to the MachineGames on internal timeline (the game itself was tied into the RTCW/Wolfenstein 2009 by use of artwork, but reference to B.J. being an OSS agent, but it came out long before MachineGames took over the series and rebooted it). However, in the game versions of these events one can use the Assault Rifle 1946 which could mean that in MachineGames timeline the assault occurred only months before 1946 portions of Old Blood. So it could easily be late 1945 to early 1946 event. Hitler's survival is reported on in January, 1946 (it's even possible that report was made within hours or even a day from when the event took place).

Issues: Ramona and Anya are thought to be the same person by some fans. Ramona's birthday is May 3. Zofia's diary is listed as August 1, 1908.

She talks about how she plans to meet Rip "this Sunday". August 1, 1908 actually was a Saturday, so she could have said "Tomorrow".

  13. Fergus Reid indicates the 'last encounter' with Deathshead occurred years ago, this would seem to suggest it has to be at least two years before 1946. However, Wolfenstein itself took place roughly in the Fall, after September 1944. That would mean only around 1 year and 9 months at the most between events of raid in The New Order and Wolfenstein. On one hand considering there was issues preventing RAF from taking on Tirpitz in Wolfenstein 2009, form a logistical stand point it would seem it would fit better after the fall of the RAF in June 24, 1945. However, the Tirpitz events might not even have happened in this timeline, and that would make it less than 7-9 month before the prologue events of The New Order..
