Vice president of Bethesda Softworks, Pete Hines, recently spoke out in an interview with finder.com.au about collaborating with Nintendo. When asked about working together with the popular publishing and development company on the upcoming NX, Hines said Bethesda will be considering the platform in the future.
“We talk to Nintendo all the time – we’re pretty well briefed in on what they are doing,” Hines said. “It’s definitely something we will look at; and our philosophy is that we will put our games out on any format that supports the games as we envisage and make them.”
“If the NX fits that from a technical standpoint, and fits the game that a developer in our stable is making, I don’t see why we would not put it out on NX. But it’s too early to say, ‘we’ll definitely be putting games out or not.’ Like with mobile, we want to have the right fit for the right formats.”
Looks like there is some hope for Nintendo fans who also appreciate Bethesda, and a hopeful sign overall as there hasn’t been much third-party support from major developers on the Wii U. It is nice to know that Nintendo consults Bethesda frequently, but, for right now, players can only dream of seeing Bethesda’s classic franchises like The Elder Scrolls released on the NX.
