Panic Button head Adam Creighton discussed some interesting information with Variety at E3 this week. While sharing about the company’s plans and porting efforts with Switch, Creighton explained that Panic Button has spent close to six years working with the Switch hardware, including early development tech.
“We’ve been working on the hardware for a long time, almost six years. That’s more than almost any third party.”
Creighton also revealed that Panic Button is working on another major port expected to be announced next month.
Regarding Panic Button’s ports of Bethesda games, Creighton noted:
“With Bethesda, between ‘Doom’ and ‘Wolfenstein II,’ they’ve shown you can put these games that are triple A on the hardware. Doom has been received very well. Zenimax is extremely happy with the external feedback.”
He explains that with Wolfenstein II, the team is “really pushing the engine forward and everything else. We’re trying to hold onto all of those visuals.” Adding that the team is proud of its accomplishment.
Wolfenstein II is reported to run at 30 frames per second on Switch with variable resolutions. Motion controls from Doom are also being brought over to the upcoming release.
