Earlier this year, Blizzard Entertainment told the press it was very open to putting Overwatch on Nintendo Switch.
In an Eurogamer interview released today, Blizzard Entertainment’s Jeff Kaplan reiterated that they are open to the idea of porting Overwatch to Switch, as it’s they have a desire to “reach as many possible Overwatch players”. If the technology is powerful enough, perhaps we’ll see it one day.
Unfortunately Kaplan said they don’t have any plans to announce at this point of time, so we’ll have to wait and see.
Check out Kaplan’s full comments below:
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.
