WWE 2K18 Will Get A Release Date For Nintendo Switch Soon, Says 2K

Earlier this year, wrestling fans got to hit the ring with 2K Sports' latest sim, WWE 2K18. But there was something missing from its launch – the Nintendo Switch version.

The publisher previously advertised that the game would be coming to Switch, but we haven't heard too much about that version since its release. Fortunately, 2K has been quick to respond about whether it's still coming or not.

It all began with a notification from Amazon's UK page, notifying those that pre-ordered the games for the system that the game was no longer available. Here's the full email, verbatim:

"We regret to inform you that we have been unable to source the following item:

WWE 2K18 (Nintendo Switch)

Our supplier has informed us that this item is no longer available. This item has now been cancelled from your order XXXXXXXXXXXXX and we can confirm that you have not been charged for it.

We apologise for the length of time it has taken us to reach this conclusion. Until recently, we had still hoped to obtain this item for you.

You may visit the product detail page(s) above to see if these item(s) are available from other sellers."

As expected, this freaked a few people out, especially after 2K put so much effort into the Switch version. But it recently took to Twitter to respond to those worried fans, noting, "We haven't forgotten about you, #NintendoSwitch fans!" Info on the #WWE2K18 Switch release date is coming soon." (You can see the tweet below.)

That noted, there's still some question of when we'll get the game. This year may still be likely, as the game could arrive in early December to get fans excited. But there's also the slight possibility that it could be delayed into early next year some time, to coincide with WWE's Survivor Series, which takes place in late January 2018.

For the time being, fans are still playing the waiting game. At least they have this evening's Survivor Series to hold them over, yeah?

WWE 2K18 is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will release for Nintendo Switch soon.
