In a new article from Dual Shockers (via Den of Geek) FoxNext Games' Vice President TQ Jefferson was asked about the possibility of taking Alien: Blackout from the portable screen and onto a console, specifically the Nintendo Switch.

“I think Switch is a good one to bring up and we’ve certainly seen many games go from mobile to console or more likely console to mobile. If I had to pick a platform to put it (Alien: Blackout) on, I’d pick Switch.”

While not confirmation of anything but it's nice to know that FoxNext isn't opposed to the idea of taking Alien: Blackout onto a console. Five Nights at Freddy's, a series that Alien: Blackout seems particularly influenced by, was originally released on the PC but was also released on Android and iOS. It is also about to make the leap to console.

Alien: Blackout was built from the ground-up as a "premium" mobile game. A few days ago the official Alien Universe website shared a short Q&A with Blackout developers Rival Games Ltd.

What parts of the game are you most excited to see the fans react to?

We're keen to see how well they think we've captured the feel of the original film as we really wanted to capture that for everyone! It’s going to be exciting to see how players use the gameplay mechanics to help the crew survive since there are so many ways to accomplish this feat.

My friend works for Team Cherry who made Hollow Knight. He told me that Nintendo were the most receptive when dealing with the idea of porting to console (mind you they came from traditional desktop as opposed to mobile). Nintendo were very keen to get new game IP for their console.

well, Nintendo Switch has full support for Unreal Engine and Unity, making it indie friendly.

Though I don't have a switch, it would be an interesting console to have an alien game. I mean if ACM was good we were supposed to have a port to the Wii U that would've had the gamepad as a motion tracker, honestly would've been so cool regardless of how bad that game truly is.
