Default RPG coming to the iPhone!

To be honest this may be old news but I was dong a search for RPG games for the iPhone and found this article

Wolfenstein for the iPhone

E3 2008: Wolfenstein RPG to iPhone
EA and Carmack confirm new mobile game is also enlisting for iPhone.

http://wireless.ign.com/articles/892/892255p1.html

"At E3, Carmack confirmed that Wolfenstein RPG was indeed headed to the iPhone -- a platform Carmack seems genuinely excited about -- in addition to the Java and BREW on display at the show. While there were no builds at the EA meeting room to check out, expect the full game (and then some) to grace the iPhone by the end of the year."

July 19, 2008- This was the date the news was published.

Here is an old post about it on TouchArcade: The above news is the follow up to it.

Is this a new game or are they just porting the old one?

I thought Wofenstein was an FPS, not an RPG. Though I guess, wasn't there are a super old text adventure game (like Zork) called Wolfenstein. Are those 2 games even related? Was there some middle step between them that this refers to?

There was an old 2D top-down action game for Apple II/C64/etc. called Castle Wolfenstein. Wolfenstein 3D was influenced by that game but isn't really a sequel (different people involved, etc.). None of the Wolfenstein games so far have been RPGs, but that doesn't mean they can't make one.

This thread is full of ignorance.

"This can't be Wolfenstein!
Wolfenstein Can't be an RPG!
RPG's Can't be FPS's!"

(This post was modified for the idiots who don't understand what I'm saying)

What are you guys going to pull out next?

RPGs can be in first-person perspective and this game is just that.
A first-person RPG set in the Wolfenstein "universe".
Don't call people ignorant when you are the one who doesn't know anything about what we're discussing...

Dude ever heard of Castle Wolfenstein and Beyond Castle Wolfenstein?
Those weren't FPS's.
Who's the one full of ignorance now?

Why don't you take a look at Doom RPG and get back to us, eh?
