During this morning's Wolfenstein: The New Order announcement, MachineGames creative director Jens Matthies told the world that his team was excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere.

“As fans of the series, working on this game is an honour, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud,” he said.

However, not everyone shares Matthies' enthusiasm.

Deus Ex and Epic Mickey developer and Warren Spector immediately questioned via Facebook whether another Wolfenstein game was necessary.

“Did we need a generically dark, monochromatic, FPS, kill-the-Nazi-giant-robot game?” he asked.

“Uh. No. The world did not. I am so tired of stuff like this...

“Oh, and could we all just agree we'll never use the generic gravelly-whisper trailer voice guy ever again?

“And one more thing: Please stop using Jimi Hendrix to promote your adolescent male power fantasies.

“Thank you. I'm done.”

Spector has spoken out against the level of violence in games before, and generally isn't shy about giving his opinion on his fellow developer's efforts either.

Earlier this year he found himself out of a job when Disney closed Epic Mickey studio Junction Point.
