Nintendo Switch Port of Extinction Being Considered by Maximum Games

Nintendo Switch Port of Extinction Being Considered by Maximum Games

Maximum Games didn't initially consider porting Extinction to Nintendo Switch, but now they're thinking about it.

On June 1, Iron Galaxy and Maximum Games unveiled their new action-adventure orc-slaying game Extinction, and DualShockers got the opportunity to preview an early build of the game and talk to Executive Producer Derek Neal about the title at E3 this year.

While only PC, PS4, and Xbox One versions of Extinction have been announced, Derek Neal mentioned in our discussion that they are now considering bringing Extinction to Nintendo Switch due to demand from their fans:

“As far as Extinction, it wasn’t part of our original plan to bring Extinction to the Switch, but actually we’ve gotten this question a lot. A lot of people seem excited about the prospect of having this title on the Switch, so we are re-evaluating those options and seeing if maybe that is something we want to do. But that decision hasn’t been made yet

While Derek isn’t part of the core Iron Galaxy team, he did state that the developer has been “involved” with some Nintendo Switch projects, although they have not been unveiled yet:

I’m not myself a member of Iron Galaxy, but to speak for them, I believe they have, yes, been involved directly with some Switch development.

Stay tuned for our preview and full interview with Derek Neal about Extinction in the coming days. Extinction is currently still slated to come to PC, PS4, and Xbox One in early 2018, but we will be sure to tell you all if a Nintendo Switch version is confirmed.
