Update: The developers admit they were wrong about the ‘lack of buttons’
LawBreakers, a new first-person shooter from game designer Cliff Bleszinski and the Boss Key Productions team, isn’t currently planned to release on Nintendo Switch. Lead Designer Dan Nanni said in a recent interview with GamingBolt that the Switch’s lack of buttons is the “hardest part” when porting LawBreakers.
There’s a possibility for everything and anything in this world. I think the hardest part with the Switch is the controls. Look at the game that we have right now, and we just literally by the skin of our teeth put the entire game and the control pad that the PlayStation has. That means that we could probably make it work for the Xbox One in someway, right? But if you’re looking at the Switch the base controller that’s on the unit, it doesn’t have as many buttons.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t be coming to Nintendo Switch but it’ll be interesting to see if the team at Boss Key Productions can come up with a way to make it happen in the future.
