Rage 2 could be released for Switch, provided id thinks it's up to the task

It was back in May when we found out that Rage 2, the follow-up to the original title from id Software, was headed for a spring release in 2019. The game has been co-developed with Avalanche Studios with Bethesda looking after publishing duties, the latter of which describes the sequel as a "AAAAAA game". While we know that Rage 2 will be headed to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, there may be room for another gaming platform in that lineup.

In an interview with Variety, id Software studio director Tim Willits opened up about the possibility to bring the title to Nintendo's latest console, the Switch, which has gone from strength to strength, selling over 20 million units since release. Although Willits, game director for the original installment of the game, did not rule out bringing the sequel to the hybrid console, it's by no means a surety, having said:

"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."

While Doom Eternal will end up on Switch alongside the other previously mentioned gaming platforms, it remains to be seen if Nintendo's console packs enough processing power to run Rage 2 without the two development studios having to resort to architectural compromises.
