Bethesda had a pretty good conference at E3, within which they reaffirmed their commitment to the Nintendo Switch as a platform. In recent times, huge titles from the developer have made their way to the unique console with relative success, including DOOM, Wolfenstein II and Skyrim. Fallout is a different beast, offering the sprawling size of Skyrim but with updated graphics, increasing the demand on the host system.
Todd Howard was asked in a recent interview by Game Reactor about the developer’s plans for the console going forward:
“Well there’s definitely interest. It’s not something that we are exploring right now. We think Switch is a great platform – it was the first time we really worked closely with Nintendo on Skyrim – and really, really great experience and we’ll certainly be doing more things there in the future, but right now it’s not a mainline Fallout 4.”
It’s not clear whether Howard is referring to interest within the company itself, or from fans of the games but his words should be cause for hope for those of you that are. That being said, it will clearly be some time before the game does make its way over. Let’s hope that when it does, it does so as successfully as the Bethesda titles we mentioned previously
