Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Wolfenstein Switch Port Studio Wants To Bring Entire Series To Nintendo's Console

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches on Switch fairly soon, a bit more than half a year after its release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The porting studio, Panic Button, was recently asked by GameSpot whether they would consider bringing the first game and its DLC, Old Blood, to Switch as well to complete the story loop. After all, Wolfenstein II is only half the story.

Adam Creighton, the CEO of Panic Button, says it's Bethesda's call.

"That's a Bethesda discussion, honestly," Creighton said. "It's [up to] them and Nintendo as to what would work for the platform. I think it'll be interesting to see how [The New Colossus is] received right after it launches at the end of the month and what Bethesda does from there."

Creighton was then asked if the game was currently in development.

"Not currently. Not that I know of, but Bethesda may have other plans. And we on the Panic Button side are totally up for anything."

Bethesda has been one of the Switch's biggest third party supporters after historically being uninvolved with Nintendo consoles. After Skyrim, Doom, and Wolfenstein II, however, there aren't any known Switch ports from other consoles or original games announced. It is possible the technology window for those ports is closing and Bethesda is looking to its back catalog or is just being quiet about future ports, like Doom Eternal or maybe Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

Regardless of what's next, it does seem like Panic Button is eager to handle it.

Doom did fairly well for itself on the Switch, so it will be interesting to see how Wolfenstein does. I also wonder if Bethesda considers the feasibility of future ports when making games, like with the upcoming Doom Eternal.
