Bethesda has just dashed hopes that The Game Awards 2014 would be hosting some of their yet-to-be-revealed gems, like a certain Fallout in the works, or more dabbling with ancient scrolls.

Copyright and file-sharing news site Torrent Freak is reporting that Machine Game's recently released reboot Wolfenstein: The New Order has been pirated over 100,000 times already since its launch last week.

According to chart compilers UKIE, that makes it the second biggest launch of 2014 so far, behind Titanfall. It accounted for a quarter of all entertainment software sold last week. Not bad, Blazkowicz, not bad at all.
