GameSpot managed to meet the team behind the acclaimed Overwatch as the game recently celebrated its second anniversary. Blizzard, the company behind the multiplayer game, suggested it is unlikely that the game will make its way onto the Nintendo Switch due to the differences in the hardware. The team understands that the Switch is very popular, but they are focussed on supporting the current platforms.
“I think it is one of those things that we constantly evaluate. Where technology is going; where the industry is going. There are challenges in running on the platforms that we’re not already on, otherwise we would probably already be on some of those other platforms. We’ll see where things go. Certainly, there is a huge number of people out there who have Nintendo Switch and mobile phones, but right now, the core development team is focused on supporting the live game.”
