Bethesda NX Support Cannot be Ruled Out But It’s Too Early to Tell

Bethesda NX support

Pete Hines, the vice president of Bethesda Softworks, has said that Bethesda NX support is a possibility. However, it’s too soon to really tell whether or not it’s a realistic possibility. Hines talked about the possibility at Quakecon, where he confirmed that they talk to Nintendo a great deal, but the NX has to be technically fit to run Bethesda games.

This could just be Hines being open to possibilities, though. He said something roughly similar when asked about the possibility of Skyrim being on the Wii U. Unsurprisingly this never happened. Hines said that Bethesda NX support would depend on the ability for the format to be the right fit.

There has been some discussion in the past about the Nintendo NX console having the ability to have ports of other Triple A games on it. Considering that Bethesda could have things like Doom, Skyrim: Special Edition, and Dishonored on the console, Bethesda may be in a position to make a good amount of money.

Of course, the ability to port those games over to the NX depends on how well the developers can adjust to the new format of the NX and other games like it. Developer Psyonix, who created Rocket League, has already said that their game coming out on the NX depended on the motivation of the developers to do it, so it’s not just a matter of the architecture, either.

At least one third-party company has already said that they’re going to be putting a game out for the NX, that being Ubisoft and Just Dance 2017. However, it depends on what people like Pete Hines and other Bethesda executives want to do for Bethesda NX support, or if anything like that will even happen at all.

Either way we’ll just have to wait for more information before we start hoping that anything from Bethesda will ever be on the Nintendo NX.
