WW2 Not Coming to Nintendo Switch
While this past E3 gave us tons of new announcements for the Nintendo Switch, there’s one AAA title that people won’t be able to play on the new hybrid console.
Responding to a question by a fan, Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind this year’s Call of Duty installment, Call of Duty: WW2, has confirmed that the game will not be coming to the Nintendo Switch. The confirmation was given during a Reddit AMA, where Sledgehammer simple stated, “No”, when asked about the possibility of a Nintendo port. This follows suit with a report last month that stated that the absence of this year’s Call of Duty on the Switch was a decision made by “Activision’s business guys”, Michael Condrey of Sledgehammer stated.
Call of Duty WW2 isn’t the only AAA game published by Activision that isn’t coming to the Switch, as Destiny 2 is confirmed to only be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as well. Call of Duty: WW2 is set to release on November 3rd. .
Opinion: Not having Call of Duty on the Switch shouldn’t come as a surprise. Games like Destiny 2 will be capable of running on PCs in 4k and unlocked frame rates, while Call of Duty began moving away from last generation consoles in 2016. The Nintendo Switch, while still releasing promising titles before the end of the calendar year, simply isn’t powerful enough for the majority of upcoming AAA third party titles.
