One of the biggest video games of 2017 will be Rockstar’s long-awaited Red Dead Redemption 2. The sequel to the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption is expected to be the biggest holiday title next Christmas. Industry analyst Michael Pachter believes that the chances of the wild west themed shooter appearing on the Nintendo Switch are ‘exceedingly poor’ and that he would be “really surprised if they wasted their effort to port anything for Nintendo.” I guess we shall have to wait and see, Mr. Pachter.
“I would say the chances of that are exceedingly poor,” he said. “I can’t remember any game other than – there was a GTA made for the DS, which came out in 2009 – I’d be really surprised if they wasted their effort to port anything for Nintendo. I just think that Nintendo has wandered too far away from the mainstream for most of the publishers, so you’re just not getting mainstream games produced for Nintendo consoles- not ones made for other consoles, at any rate.”
