Bethesda will continue to release Switch titles

Todd Howard says Bethesda is pleased with sales on Switch and there are more games to come

Bethesda's games appearing on the Nintendo Switch has been one of the best surprises of the Switch generation and it looks like we can expect more from the Maryland-based developer. GameReactor recently sat down to interview boss Todd Howard about performance of Switch titles, even asking him if the company has any plans to bring Fallout 4 to the Switch.

"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."

Skyrim, Doom, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are enjoying great success on the Switch, so it seems unlikely that Bethesda wouldn't eventually bring their post-apocalyptic shooter to the console. That's especially true since Fallout Shelter just debuted on the Switch during E3.

Pete Hines has been adamant about Bethesda's support for Switch, telling IGN in an interview that they would not limit themselves to "just the two games." At the time of that interview, only Skyrim and Doom were available and we've since seen Wolfenstein II released. There's some hope that Bethesda will bring Wolfenstein: The New Order to the console, since Wolfenstein II is already available.

Fallout 4 has a Game of the Year edition available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, so perhaps we'll see the post apocalyptic shooter eventually, even if Todd Howard isn't willing to confirm it outright. What do you think, would you play Fallout 4 on Switch?
