Game Reactor confirmed the news today that Panic Button will be the studio in charge of porting Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus over to the Nintendo Switch for a release sometime next year. Below is a snippet from the article, which doesn’t give out too many details or a release date as they barely picked up the project. But we enjoyed watching the video and getting their thoughts on VR.
Earlier in the interview we also talk about body awareness when playing in first person with J. Blazkowicz (something they had a dedicated team for; the “through the gun team”). We wondered if this could be used for a potential Wolfenstein 2 VR adaptation.
“We have no plans of turning the game into a VR experience,” confirms Öjerfors. “But at some time we would love to do some VR experiments, absolutely, and we are very interested as a studio in creating that physical sense of being in the world, so it would be interesting to try that out in VR, We’ll see”.
