Have you been hoping for Fallout 76 on Switch? Unfortunately it seems that Bethesda has said the game will not work with the Switch hardware.
In PAX Australia Pete Hines of Bethesda has stated:
‘The Switch is something I can say with certainty that it’s a part of every conversation with every dev we have now… If the game will work on it, we want it to be on every platform possible.
Fallout 76 is not [coming to Switch] because it just wasn’t doable. But honestly, there is no game in development that we haven’t had a conversation about [bringing to Switch]. ‘Does this work on the Switch, do you have a plan for the Switch?’ It’s not a mandate. Everything we do has to be developer-led, but it’s something we want to make sure is on folks’ radar.
You go where the money is because that’s how you stay in business… What we have seen compels us to say, ‘[Switch] is a viable platform for the kind of things we do going forward.’
This is quite unfortunate news but great that Bethesda is considering every title for the Switch from here on out. Perhaps if the Switch were just a little more capable in the hardware department we would be getting the same treatment as the other platforms.
The bad thing is that we live in a world that things great games have to have to have high-end graphics. A ridiculous prospect but still a blind vision that the world now sees through.
