One title from Blizzard that many of you would like to see appear on the Nintendo Switch is online multiplayer game Overwatch. Eurogamer has published an extensive interview with Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan, during which, Mr. Kaplan was asked about the possibility of Overwatch appearing on the platform. He teased that the team are very open minded about the possibility of Overwatch for Nintendo Switch, which sounds encouraging.
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.
