Bethesda has been showing the Nintendo Switch a lot of love recently. They have released ports of 2016’s DOOM and 2017’s Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, and they recently announced that DOOM Eternal would be making its way to the Switch as well. In an interview with Variety, id Software studio director Tom Willits suggested that the studio is “evaluating” a version of the upcoming open-world shooter Rage 2 for Nintendo’s console, but the studio is not sure if the Switch has enough power to handle the game.

When asked about a Switch version of Rage 2, Willits stated:

“We’re looking at the tech on that right now, and we’re still evaluating that. We stream everything, and we’re just looking… because everything is open, everything’s available, so there’s no level loads. We are looking at that now, but we don’t know.” — Tom Willits

So, it seems like id Software is worried that the Switch can’t handle Rage 2‘s massive open world and lack of loading screens. However, it sounds as if that fails to be true then the game could make its way to the Switch sometime in the future.

What do you guys think? Would you like to see Rage 2 come to the Switch? Do you think the Switch can handle it? Sound off in the comments below!

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
