Activision, under direction from the development overlords at id Software, has, in disappointing news for the id fan base, announced that it will not be bringing Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory to the PC. However, the acclaimed multiplayer aspect of the add-on will still be made available. And better yet, it will all be free!
id's official statement on the matter reads, "id Software and Activision announced today they are cancelling the retail release of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Despite a strong effort from talented developers, the single player portion of the game did not progress as anticipated. Cancelling the release was a difficult decision made in the best interest of the Wolfenstein franchise and fans. However, we remain excited about the progress and direction of Enemy Territory multiplayer. Over the next several months the focus of our development will be to complete the multiplayer portion of Enemy Territory and provide it as a free downloadable expansion to Return to Castle Wolfenstein."
So there you have it - free stuff is better than stuff you have to pay for. So be happy.
