Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What happen to Switch 3rd party port developers like Panic Button etc?

Haven't heard of them in a long time and the other fantastic port developers neither?



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

They put Doom Eternal and Apex Legends on Switch last 2 years.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Saber Interactive released World War Z on Switch back in November.



Hard working.

"¡Viva la Ñ!"

I know that Panic Button diversified a bit, and are porting PS4/X1 games to the next gen. They handled the Gen 9 ports of Forza Horizon 5 and Star Wars: Fallen Order. Not to mention that as far back as 2018, they said that they wanted to work on their own thing occasionally.



Love and tolerate.

They have PlayStation 6 dev kits? It's been 2 years. PS5/SX are current gen.

People were calling the PS360 "Next Gen" in 2009 and the PS5/X1 duo "Next Gen" in 2016.

Until we stop getting most major games released for the PS4/X1, I'm comfortable calling the PS5/XSX Next Gen.

Ok then, just keep calling 2022 next year and April Next month.

The main thing is that you know what they're talking about. The semantics are dull either way. Some people call it current gen the minute new hardware comes out, most people do not whilst the platforms are still new and haven't received major franchises built for them 



Saber is porting Kingdom Come Deliverance, Virtuos just recently finished Dying Light, and Feral are porting Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light/Temple of Osiris.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
