Red Dead Redemption 2 Nintendo Switch Version Highly Unlikely, According To Analyst

Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar Games finally announced Red Dead Redemption 2 a few weeks ago and since then, fans have been wondering about the possibility of a Red Dead Redemption 2 Nintendo Switch version given the support developers and publishers are pledging to the platform.

According to industry analyst Michael Pachter, the chances of Red Dead Redemption 2 Nintendo Switch version ever being a possibility are highly unlikely given the past history of Rockstar releases on Nintendo platforms.

I would say the chances of that are exceedingly poor. 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.

According to Pachter, Nintendo being in its own world and focusing on first party titles has wandered too far away from mainstream games and publishers as is evident by the poor third party support for Nintendo consoles and handhelds over the past few years.

That combined with the fact that not everyone is still sold on the idea of Switch, a hybrid handheld-home console, a Red Dead Redemption 2 Nintendo Switch version has even less of a chance than a PC version of the game, for which there is even a petition online.

Despite claiming to love the platform and pledging project support to it, even going as far as showcasing Skyrim on the platform, many developers and publishers including Bioware and Bethesda have said that right now there are no plans to release any Nintendo Switch games.

Nintendo itself has been pretty quiet when it comes to ‘selling’ the Switch as a must have console. In fact, they haven’t even given the full details and hardware nitty gritty of the platform and will be releasing that information next year, making many people sceptical of the viability of the platform.
