Zelnick, CEO of Rockstar Games, has stated that Nintendo Switch support is on the cards but Rockstar will support the platform with selective games. The CEO mentioned that some of the IP’s owned by the company will make it to the Nintendo Switch.
The company is impressed by how Switch has performed in the market so far. Speaking at Cowen and Company 45th Annual Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, Zelnick said that they consider themselves to be in the very important partnership with Nintendo.
We’re there front and center. We have basketball coming for the platform, we consider ourselves in a very important partnership with Nintendo, and we believe in it, and we see it the way they do. We think it’s been a very successful launch. It remains to be seen how it does, but we’re excited about it and assuming there’s an installed base, we’ll be there. Not with all our titles, but selectively.
While this statement is very promising for the Nintendo Switch, players should not expect major properties to release on the platform. Nintendo Switch is powered by a custom TEGRA chip which is not enough to handle games like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption.
Take-Two will announce more Nintendo Switch games in the near future.
