If there was one developer/publisher that surprised many when the Nintendo Switch was announced, it was Bethesda. Skyrim was the first game that the company released on the Switch and they have since not slowed down. The company has since released DOOM on the Switch, Fallout Shelter, and Wolfenstein II.

However it seems that the company’s plans for the Switch are far from over. Speaking to Gamereactor, Bethesda’s Todd Howard was quoted as saying, “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.”

Howard’s quote was in response to being asked about the potential for games like Fallout 4 to eventually find its way onto the console. Unfortunately Howard’s response was that this isn’t something that they are looking into right now, but the company does have plans for the future even if it isn’t necessarily Fallout 4.

His response is interesting as you might recall, there has been some interest in seeing older Wolfenstein titles arrive for the Switch, but presumably this will be dependent on how well Wolfenstein II does before Bethesda commits more resources to such endeavors. In the meantime Bethesda’s next release will be Fallout 76 but unfortunately there is no mention of the Switch as being one of its release platforms.
