Panic Button Says More Ports are Coming to Switch

It looks like Wolfenstein II won’t be the developer’s last job on the system.

Panic Button, the developer responsible for porting high profile games like Doom and Rocket League onto Switch, has hinted that it is currently involved in even more unannounced Switch ports.

We already knew that the developer is working on the Switch version of Wolfenstein II, but in an interview with Gamasutra, Panic Button’s director of development, Adam Creighton, hinted that there are several other titles in the works as well:

You know that meme? With the dog? Drinking from a sprinkler? That’s me right now. And we might have some other titles for that platform, and maybe some other games for other platforms, in the works.

In terms of volume, I’m in this amazing place where as a studio we get to choose how we want to grow, and with whom, and with what projects. My biggest challenge lately is not which projects do we pick to retarget to other platforms, but managing the other parts of our portfolio, picking the different projects that are exciting to different people in the studio, and being responsible about what I want to work on, versus what is best for the studio.”

Creighton also noted that, in terms of games that Panic Button has published, the developer has seen more sales on Switch than on PS4 and Xbox One combined during the same period.

Panic Button has clearly shown that it is more than capable of successfully porting games to Switch (be sure to check out our Doom review if you want evidence of this) and it will be interesting to see what franchises they will be bringing to the platform after Wolfenstein II.
