In a recent interview at Blizzcon, Jeff Kaplin revealed that there could be more big news for Blizzard fans and arena shooter fans. It is a possibility that Overwatch ‘could’ be coming to the Switch. It’s been made all the more possible after the well-received Diablo 3 port to the Switch.
Talking of technical complications: have you explored putting Overwatch on Switch (Diablo launched on Switch today)? Could it work?
Jeff Kaplan: Our philosophy has always been we want as many players playing Overwatch as possible, and we want to reach as many possible Overwatch players as are out there. We will always explore a platform if we think we could make it viable – both the technology and the business relationship. We would love to do it.
We don’t have anything to announce or any plans with Nintendo or Switch at this time, but –
It’s a possibility?
Jeff Kaplan: It’s something we’re very open-minded about.
If Overwatch does make it to the Nintendo Switch, what could that mean for other big AAA games? Could this be the boost the Nintendo Switch needs to get more of the big publishers to come to the platform?
Here at SwitchWatch, we hope so. Only time will tell, Fingers crossed!
