After closing the door to a future arrival of Fallout 76 on Nintendo Switch, Bethesda’s vice-president Pete Hines takes advantage of the PAX Australia media showcase to confirm that Wolfenstein’s epic shoot-through, unlike the post-apocalyptic Fallout, will happily release on the hybrid console of the Big N.
The top manager of the US software company would have confirmed to the colleagues of GameSpot the presence of Nintendo Switch in the range of platforms affected by the development of the “new chapter” by Wolfenstein.
The generic reference to the “new chapter” by Wolfenstein made by Pete Hines during the panel held during the last Australian edition of the Penny Arcade Expo, consequently, does not dissolve the doubt regarding the nature of the project that will see the light on Switch.
The identikit of the title suggested by Hines would not seem to match that of Wolfenstein Cyberpilot, the next episode of the FPS saga of Bethesda announced during E3 2018 and usable from the first half of 2019 only in virtual reality through PS VR on PlayStation 4 and the main VR viewers available on PC, from HTC Vive to Oculus Rift.
All clues, therefore, inevitably lead to the spin-off of The New Colossus Wolfenstein: Youngblood and, above all, to Wolfenstein III, the new act of the eternal battle between William “BJ” Blazkowicz and the Nazi empire born in 1981 from the fervid imagination of the Muse Software authors.
The third installment of the Wolfenstein shooter series, although not yet officially announced for Nintendo Switch and for any other platform, is part of the broader vision presented by the vice president of Bethesda during PAX Australia to describe the plans that the house of development and production with stars and stripes held in the medium to long-term, between the end of this generation of consoles and the beginning of the next.
