Trivia / Return to Castle Wolfenstein

  • Development Hell: The film adaptation. Cult director Roger Avary was tapped to write and direct, then was sent to jail for vehicular manslaughter. When he got out, the funding had dried up. Supposedly he's still attached, but nobody wants to fund a video game movie in the age of comic book movies.
  • Hey, It's That Sound!:
    • The Grenade Launcher sound from Quake II and Quake III: Arena is reused once again, for the hand grenades.
    • Enemy Territory reuses the sound assets from RTCW, including the music.
    • The zombies' growls and shrieks are taken from old Hanna-Barbera cartoons, most notably Scooby-Doo.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory would have been a sequel towards RTCW. Only the multiplayer portion of the game made the cut, as a free downloadable game, with the single-player portion of the game being cut. This paved the way for the Enemy Territory series which continued with Enemy Territory: Quake Wars.
