We finally got to see the reveal for Destiny 2 yesterday and the developers Bungie had a lot to talk about; the latest improvements, new features and more. A question was raised about the possibility that the game would get a Nintendo Switch port to which the answer was no.
The developers said talking to IGN, Mark Noseworthy reported that the developers are just not interested in porting to the Switch. And that’s perfectly fine, there isn’t enough following on such a console. According to the developer “[The Switch is] incredible, I love the console, but in terms of where it’s at, I don’t want to leave anyone with the possibility of, like, ‘It’s a thing we’ll consider, maybe next year.’ There’s no plans right now for Switch.”
While most people would think that 3rd party support for games isn’t coming to Switch because of a grand conspiracy, it’s actually not like that. The fact of the matter is that the console has extremely under powered hardware, among other things. It’s supposed to be a lightweight, portable gaming machine which is meant to be played with or without online access.
Other than that, the focus on younger audience as well as the demand for more indie-esque titles by most of the community is one of the reasons why a lot of the 3rd party games will not make their way towards the Switch.
Consider Skyrim, one of the reasons why a lot of the customers bought the console, still hasn’t showed up to the console.
Although Switch owners aren’t getting Destiny 2 any time soon, PC gamers should rejoice as the game is making its way towards the platform. Not only will it be completely supported by the developers, with fully functioning graphical options, unlocked frame rate and more.
For more updates regarding Destiny 2, stay tuned.
