Panic Button, the studio responsible for porting games to Switch like Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, has partnered with Digital Extremes to bring the hit cooperative, sci-fi action game over to the Switch. While a shooter, Warframe features a number of RPG elements, putting players in the role of cyber-enhanced warriors armed with both guns and bladed weapons. Those anxious about Warframe's transition to Switch should rest easy, as many have praised Panic Button's work with both Wolfenstein 2 and DOOM on the system. It seems now we finally have our answer as to what the mystery game is.
WWE 2K18, while generally well-received by critics, was universally panned on the Nintendo console, with journalists and consumers reporting major performance and framerate issues as the title struggled on the Switch's limited hardware capabilities (in comparison to PS4, Xbox One and PC).
"The game will not be available on Nintendo Switch", stated 2K Sports.
So while the gold rush days of limited competition might soon be coming to an end for indie developers on the Switch, we're still a long way away from the tsunami of content that some worry is contributing to a race to the bottom effect on some other platforms. This company has a good track record with creating good Switch games that haven't lost their visual luster. There has been no specific launch date announced for the game. According to Polygon, developer Digital Extremes confirmed at TennoCon that their ever-expanding title will be heading to Nintendo's revolutionary gaming console.
"Our goal is cross-platform play", explains Warframe Creative Director Steve Sinclair.
