The news that Bethesda is bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein 2 to Switch certainly caused some shockwaves in the Nintendo community. You might assume that along with Skyrim, Bethesda is still in the process of testing the waters on Switch, but according to Bethesda boss Pete Hines this trio of releases is by no means the end of the story.
While so many other publishers continue to take a "wait and see" approach, Hines - speaking to Venturebeat - is adamant that Bethesda is in for the long haul as far as Switch is concerned:
We’ve been in constant conversation with [Nintendo], and not just about the two games we have now, but about our whole approach to the platform going forward – what we can do, best practices, what things are a good fit, what they’re excited about in what we’re doing. We’re obviously excited about these two games, but it’s not as if we’re going to just do these two games and that’s it. We want this to be the start of a relationship that we build with Nintendo and Nintendo fans.
Earlier today, we reported on the news that The Evil Within 2 director Shinji Mikami is interested in porting the game to Switch; perhaps that is more likely than we think, given Hines' positive comments.
