When it was announced that Skyrim, Doom, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, gamers knew that Bethesda was really truly supporting the new system. This opened up lots of possibilities about what might be coming to the system both in current years and upcoming ones. But, when Fallout 76 wasn’t brought to the Switch, gamers had to wonder if it would just be old titles getting the treatment, or new ones.
Well, now we have our answer, for at PAX Australia, Bethesda’s Pete Hines spoke about the relationship they now have with Nintendo, and what it means for the upcoming games from the company:
“The Switch is something I can say with certainty that it’s a part of every conversation with every dev we have now about what we’re doing going forward because we consider it to be a viable platform. If the game will work on it, we want it to be on every platform possible. Fallout 76 is not because it just wasn’t doable. But honestly, there is no game in development that we haven’t had a conversation about [bringing it to Switch]. ‘Does this work on the Switch, do you have a plan for the Switch?’ It’s not a mandate. Everything we do has to be developer-led, but it’s something we want to make sure is on folks’ radar.”
So for this to be happening proves that Bethesda wants to keep going with Nintendo in the long term, which is a big win for not just the Big N, but for gamers as well. In fact, Hines also noted that the next Wolfenstein game would definitely be coming to Switch.
