Steady pace the Switch has shown so far, resulting in Panic Button bringing more titles to the Switch.
Panic Button may be teasing more games for Nintendo’s hybrid console, the Switch. Panic Button has already brought some heavy hitters to the platform, such as DOOM and Rocket League, with Wolfstein: The New Colossus coming this year as well.
The Switch is on pace to become one of Nintendo’s hardware releases, with the possibility of overlapping the ever-popular Wii in a few years.
In a recent interview, Adam Creighton, director of development of Panic Button opened up about the overwhelming work taking place over the last few months, with ports taking a big toll on the company.
“You know that meme? With the dog? Drinking from a sprinkler? That’s me right now,” says Adam Creighton, director of development at Panic Button. For him, the volume of work is almost overwhelming. His studio handled the Doom and Rocket League Switch ports, and is currently hard at work on bringing another id property, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, to Nintendo’s console. And he hints it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
“And we might have some other titles for that platform, and maybe some other games for other platforms, in the works,” Creighton tells me. “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.”
