The tweet below was sent out yesterday:

    Not surprised. Guys at one time made the port of Borderland2 on ps vita. It was an interesting experience.

    Iron Galaxy is a phenomenal studio. Their work on Killer Instinct(best fighter this gen) season 2 and up is outstanding!

  • KnightWonder

    Did a great job with this port. Smooth and pretty.

      Sounds like my honeymoon.

    I didn’t know that Iron Galaxy was involved in porting Skyrim for the Switch… and the CEO of the development studio was once a rep from Sony– ADAM BOYES!!!

      Oh I forgot Boyes took over last year. That’s really interesting

    Oh, kind of hoped it was internal…

    Still props to Iron Galaxy for their work

      With all that Bethesda’s working on, I doubt they have time to do anything internal. Doesn’t mean that they’re not committed. I mean, heck, even Nintendo ported Twilight Princess using another company.

        Its more of wanting them to get the experience for future projects, though, with that said, if an internal studio (even a very talented one) can pull off a port like this, then the people actually making the engines should certainly be able to do so as well.

    i was wondering who worked on this port
