Wasteland developer InXile Entertainment teases Nintendo Switch project

Matt Sayer 19 October 2017 NEWS


The Switch could be getting into the classic RPG game in the near future.

InXile Entertainment, the studio helmed by lauded game designer Brian Fargo and responsible for the acclaimed Wasteland strategy RPG series, has revealed it plans on exploring development opportunities on Nintendo's popular hybrid console the Nintendo Switch.

This morning, the studio tweeted that it had just received the go-ahead from Nintendo of America to begin work on the Nintendo Switch, though it did not elaborate any further on what specific work it has planned.

Given InXile's most recent titles were the reborn Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera, both of which saw console releases on PS4 and Xbox One, it seems highly plausible that Switch ports of both games could be on the horizon. Neither title is particularly graphically-taxing, so it doesn't seem like the lower performance of the Switch would be an insurmountable obstacle in porting the games across.

InXile is also currently working on Wasteland 3 and The Bard's Tale IV, both of which would make similarly excellent portable games on the Switch.

We'll keep you posted if we learn any more on InXile's plans.
