Recently, Activision-owned studio Beenox dropped a tweet that clearly hinted they were working on something Call of Duty related. Beenox mainly focuses on porting games to “lower priority” platforms, and have worked on Wii and Wii U in the past, so a Switch game would make sense. Activision has also updated the official Call of Duty website, which once again lets you link your Nintendo Account to your main CoD account. Finally, gaming site BadFive say an anonymous source had confirmed that Call of Duty: WWII for the Switch is in development.
So yeah, at this point we’re just going assume Call of Duty: WWII is coming to the Switch. Continue to take this with a grain of salt if you must, but the evidence seems to add up. Well, BadFive is back with some more anonymously sourced rumors about the almost-certainly-happening Call of Duty: WWII Switch port.
According to them, Call of Duty: WWII has been in development for Switch at Beenox since August of 2016, and is expected to launch alongside all the other versions. Those who pre-order the game on Switch will get access to the same bonuses as players on other platforms (so far private beta access is all that’s been announced), indicating the port is aiming for similar content as its Xbox One and PS4 “big brothers.”
Unfortunately, DLC is not yet a lock, with Activision planning to take a “wait and see” approach. If the game sells, Switch owners will get the extra content, but don’t expect anything if it underperforms. Also, don’t count on any sort of unique Switch features like motion-controlled aiming.
Finally, BadFive is now reporting the Switch version of Call of Duty: WWII will be a big part the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017 video presentation. Previously, they said it might be revealed in a separate Nintendo Direct.
Definitely mark all these latest details as rumor, as BadFive isn’t the most proven source yet, but again, Call of Duty: WWII on Nintendo Switch seems likely for a number of reasons, and this latest info all seems reasonable enough. We’ll just have to wait until E3 for confirmation.0comments
