Responsible for porting Rocket League, DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to Nintendo Switch, Panic Button is now “very in demand for extremely high-profile projects” destined for the portable home console.

“Nintendo Switch is a fantastic device for us, and we have expertise that very few studios have. So there’s a lot that makes sense for us to do, and we’re very in demand for extremely high-profile projects,” Panic Button general manager Adam Creighton explained to USGamer.

“But we’re also known for our high-end development work, our 4K work things like Xbox One X and PS4 Pro – we did the 4K update for Rocket League, for example – so there are things there that people are very excited about us doing. So you’ll be seeing us doing a lot of contract work on multiple platforms, but also some new original properties… sometime.”

Bethesda Softworks had announced DOOM Eternal, which will premiere at QuakeCon in a few months time, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood, in their E3 2018 Showcase.

It is unclear whether they are destined to Nintendo Switch or not at this point in time, but they could, potentially, be the kind of “extremely high-profile projects” that the Texas-based studio is working on.
