Call Of Duty WW2 might be making its way to the Nintendo Switch soon, it has been alleged. Reports suggest that game developer Beenox is making necessary steps to make the highly-anticipated port possible.
Beenox, a game development studio under Activision, recently teased fans of a possible Call Of Duty WW2 Nintendo Switch version.
The video game developer took to Twitter and shared some interesting progress about the supposed Call Of Duty WW2 port to the Nintendo Switch.
In the photo shared by Beenox, the staff can be seen posing alongside the Canadian army. One of the crew was also sporting a Call Of Duty WW2 shirt. The tweet roughly translates to: “We have two representatives from the Canadian army who tell us about their experience and their job!” They also ended the caption with a “COD,” which clearly stands for Call of Duty.
According to reports, Activision has had second thoughts about porting Call Of Duty WW2 to the Nintendo Switch, making fans assume that Beenox would take over the project. However, there has been no official confirmation from both sides about the said matter.
Beenox, which was originally established in Quebec City, became a subsidiary of Activision in May 2005. The video game developer is known for its good relationship with Nintendo, as they previously helped the company develop games such as the Skylanders: SuperChargers and The Amazing Spider-Man. Beenox also worked with other Call Of Duty franchise including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Apparently, these are considered clues that the Call Of Duty WW2 for Nintendo Switch is highly possible.
Aside from Beenox’s social media posts, many were also quick to notice some changes in Activision’s Call Of Duty website. Apparently, the site now allows players to link their Nintendo Account to their Call Of Duty profile – something that was not featured before.
It can be recalled that the website only allowed players to link to PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and Stream accounts. Reports also pointed out that the link to Nintendo Account was not available in any other Call Of Duty launch, including Infinite Warfare.
The new feature intensified fans’ excitement for the highly-anticipated Switch version of Call Of Duty WW2. Although Activision and Beenox have yet to comment about the game, fans are expecting to hear the good news on E3 as both companies will be present at the event.
Call Of Duty WW2 is scheduled to be released on November 3 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Meanwhile, another blockbuster game has been ruled out of being ported to the Nintendo Switch. Recently, American video game developer, Bungie, admitted that a Nintendo Switch version of Destiny 2 was “unrealistic.” Apparently, porting the game on the said console is highly impossible considering that it is an “online-only” game, IGN reports.
“I think it’s pretty unrealistic, given we’re an online-only game, right? The Switch, because it’s portable – and I love my Switch, I’ve got Breath of the Wild here, I’ve got it with me. It’s 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.”
On the other hand, Overwatch is also being anticipated whether or not it will make its way to the Nintendo Switch. Fans of the game remain hopeful that a Nintendo Switch port of the hit shooter game will come to fruition despite its challenges.
Although Blizzard revealed that porting Overwatch to the Nintendo Switch could be quite difficult, the company is not losing hope. In a recent interview, Blizzard game director Jeff Kaplan admitted that there are “technical difficulties” when it comes to Nintendo Switch.
“Right now there are some technical challenges. The tech specs [on Switch] aren’t quite there. It would be a non-trivial undertaking for us to make the game on Switch.”
“We’re huge Nintendo fans,” Kaplan added. “We would absolutely love to see the game on something like Switch, it’s just not feasible currently. We want to understand what their plans are because just because something might not be feasible now doesn’t mean that at some point in the future it might be an option for us.”
