Over the past month or so, circumstantial evidence has suggested that a Nintendo Switch version of Call of Duty: WWII was potentially being developed by Beenox, a studio which has ported over various Call of Duty titles to Nintendo platforms in the past. However, Activision recently spoke out and confirmed that a Nintendo Switch version of the latest from Sledgehammer Games is sadly not in development.
Amid all the E3 buzz, a comment made by an Activision representative got a little lost in the noise. But the comment has made things pretty clear in terms of a potential Switch version of Call of Duty: WWII:
“Call of Duty: WWII will not be coming to the Nintendo Switch.”
While the confirmation is no-doubt disappointing for some Switch owners, it’s also not too surprising considering the fact that Call of Duty games have never sold particularly well on Nintendo platforms, thanks in no small part to the fact that those versions have often had to be altered (i.e. have features cut) to conform to Nintendo’s standards. The last Call of Duty game to be released for a Nintendo console was Call of Duty: Ghosts which was released for the Wii U way back in 2013.
So there you have it, if you want to play Call of Duty: WWII when it arrives on November 3, you should make sure you have a PC, an Xbox One, or a PlayStation 4.
