Panic Button will be porting Wolfenstein II to the Switch

Don’t Panic!

Panic Button, the developers behind the excellent DOOM port to Switch, will be helming the upcoming Wolfesntein II port to the same console. Bethesda revealed this news to GameReactor today along with mentioning the port will be out in early 2018.

Machine Games’ senior game designer, Andreas Öjerfors, stated, “they’re [Panic Button] experts at the Switch and now they’re experts with the [id Tech 6] engine so we work with them, and the Doom version turned out to be really kick-ass on the Switch so I think Wolfenstein will be the same.”

While I wasn’t exactly fond of the 30 FPS cap, having DOOM playable on a portable device was a real treat. I never expected to see that kind of technology squeezed down in such a short time frame and without even compromising the level design. We’ve come a long way from the old, crappy PS2 ports of Xbox exclusive games (I’m looking at you Splinter Cell).
