Bethesda Softworks has shown strong support for Nintendo Switch early on, having released DOOM and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the portable home console with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to arrive in the coming months.

The publisher has been satisfied with the response to those games, and, when asked whether they would be interested in porting any of their other past releases, they would be open to the idea if it was “a good fit” both technically and for what the audience wants.

“It’ll just depend. It’ll depend on whether or not we think the game is a good fit for the platform technically and whether we think it’s something that audience wants on Switch,” Bethesda Softworks senior vice president of marketing Pete Hines explained to DualShockers.

“In that way, it’s literally no different than any other platform that we look at or any other game that we do. Hopefully, it’ll be a mix of both. If there’s stuff that folks want us to release on Switch and it’s a good fit and it works – great. If it’s new stuff going forward that we think is a good fit and will work on Switch, then we’ll do that too.”
