Bethesda on potential NX support – “definitely something we will look at”
At QuakeCon, finder.com.au spoke with Pete Hines, vice-president of Bethesda Softworks. Hines was asked about the company’s stance regarding NX, and whether we can expect to see their titles on the new system.
Hines said in response:
“We talk to Nintendo all the time – we’re pretty well briefed in on what they are doing. It’s definitely something we will look at; and our philosophy is that we will put our games out on any format that supports the games as we envisage and make them. If the NX fits that from a technical standpoint, and fits the game that a developer in our stable is making, I don’t see why we would not put it out on NX. But it’s too early to say, ‘we’ll definitely be putting games out or not.’ Like with mobile, we want to have the right fit for the right formats.”
Bethesda has some heavy-hitting franchises between the likes of Elder Scrolls, DOOM, and Dishonored. Having more third-party games on NX certainly wouldn’t be a bad thing. Only time will tell if Bethesda’s titles will end up on the platform, however.
