Thanks To publisher Bethesda.

The first person shooter earned itself a Metacritic rating of 85% on PC and PS4, with the Xbox One version out-shining them both with an 87%.

Nintendo unveiled a swathe of new Switch and 3DS titles last night, including a brand new Super Mario Odyssey-themed Switch hardware bundle and the news that Bethesda's critically acclaimed Doom (2016) and upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus titles will also be heading to Switch over the next year. So to all Doom fans, you can stop expecting Doom 2 to come out this year because it is not happening. With the Switch being able to support such a massive game like Skyrim, that opens the door to other developers, like Rockstar Games, to step in and shake things up if they were to release a game like Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Redemption for the handheld-hybrid console.
