Nintendo Switch gamers have some awesome Bethesda franchises to look forward to later this year and in 2018.

Bethesda tweeted that Doom would land in time for holiday 2017, but an exact launch date is unannounced. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will land in 2018, exactly when we don't know. All we know about the games so far is that they will be playable on the go and at home, thanks to the hybrid nature of the Switch.

Bethesda has been putting Doom on just about every platform it can to garner as much gamer attention possible and capitalize on the classic remake title. In June 2017, Bethesda put Doom VFR out for the PS4 VR and HTC Vive. Doom (2016) was a fantastic reboot for the franchise, earned good reviews and was very successful on the market. When July rolled around Bethesda had more news for fans of the Doom franchise when it rolled out the 6.66 update that unlocked all multiplayer DLC, at no cost, as the season pass offer was eliminated.

Great news for gamers who didn't shell out the money for DLC, not such great news if you paid for it. As for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Bethesda will launch that game on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on October 27, 2017. We have no idea when in 2018 the game will hit the Switch bit it's coming... 

What we do know about the game is that it is a sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order and is in an alternate reality where the Nazis won WWII. In the game, players take on the rold of B.J. Blazkowicz in the U.S. and killing Nazis is his business, and business is good. If you have missed this game, you can watch the E3 2017 trailer above and take a gander at what you will see on the Switch next year. Bethesda also says that Skyrim will launch on the Switch on November 17.
