Fallout 76

It appears that one platform Fallout 76 won’t appear on is the Nintendo Switch. The game was first announced back in June for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC, but during a panel at an Australian convention this weekend, Bethesda executive Pete Hines noted that while the studio considered the console, it just “wasn’t doable.”

During the panel, Hines said that the Switch “is part of every conversation with dev we have now about what we’re doing going forward because we consider it to be a viable platform,” but indicated that Fallout 76 wouldn’t be ported over.

The studio has thrown its weight behind the Switch, releasing ports for games like Skyrim, Doom, and Wolfenstein II. According to GameSpot, Hines indicated that “the next Wolfenstein” game will be on the console.

Fallout 76 will be released on November 14th.
