What About The Big Releases?

Bethesda Fallout 76

Bethesda revealed a TON of new info tonight. Fallout 76, which is Fallout’s take on an MMO will be releasing November 14th, 2018. In the future, they’re working on an entirely new, space-themed series, as well as the much anticipated Elder Scrolls 6. Wolfenstein is getting a new game, Wolfenstein Youngbloods, and the Doom reboot will be getting a sequel as well, Doom Eternal.

However, none of these games were announced for Switch. These games’ platforms seem to have been left openly ambiguous at this time, so there’s no word yet on whether or not we should rule these titles out.

Rage 2 and Quake: Champions, however, have been announced, and there was no mention of a Switch release. Prey was also given some extensive DLC content, but there was no mention of a Switch port for that title either.

Gamer by day, game designer by night - Lukas studied Digital Arts in school, and grew up in the age of the N64 and Gamecube. He's the youngster of the bunch, but that doesn't keep him from shouting out at every available opportunity on Infendo Radio. He often finds himself at the edge of counter-culture (hates Metroid Prime, loves Other M), but isn't afraid to dive into the next big budget AAA title with the best of 'em.
