With its announcement just yesterday, many are wondering about the possibility of Fallout 76 Switch edition. Will the next entry in the Fallout series come to Nintendo Switch? It certainly wouldn’t be unprecedented considering the Bethesda and Nintendo love train that is currently on tour with games like Wolfenstein II, DOOM, and Skyrim.
It certainly seems plausible that it will happen, but will it? We are going to dive into the possibilities of Fallout 76 Switch using the information we currently know and what we think will happen. We will also confirm what exactly Bethesda has said regarding the platforms the game will be on.
Fallout 76 Switch: Will Fallout 76 Come to Nintendo Switch?
Before we dive into the possibilities of Fallout 76 Switch, let’s go over what platforms Bethesda has confirmed with the official teaser of the next Fallout game yesterday. Technically, no specific platforms have been officially announced so it doesn’t seem like Nintendo Switch is outside the realm of possibility.
Of course, that isn’t everything we know. Retailers are known for leaking information ahead of time and such is the case with the subject of Fallout 76 Switch. Amazon has only three platforms listed for pre-order, and that is PC, PS4, and Xbox One. No sign of Nintendo Switch anywhere.
This doesn’t mean that the game won’t come to Nintendo Switch ever, but it does mean that it will most likely be after the launch of the other platforms if it does. Of course, these could be simple placeholders by Amazon but we suspect they know this for a fact.
If we are to get Fallout 76 Switch, it would be announced at the Bethesda E3 2018 press conference in just over a week in Los Angeles, California. However, if we don’t get it for Nintendo Switch, then we fully predict that there will be a Fallout game coming to the hybrid console, be it Fallout 3 or Fallout 4.
