According to Capcom President and Chief Operating Officer Haruhiro Tsujimoto, Nintendo Switch’s features and the audience doesn’t fit as well with Monster Hunter World. Moreover, porting it to the console is going to be very difficult.
He explained that Nintendo Switch is very different from PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in terms of features, which is a nice way of saying that the hardware isn’t capable enough. In case they ever port this game to Nintendo Switch, it is going to be a pain for the developers.
They released Monster Hunter XX for the Switch and it was a better fit for the console. As far as Monster Hunter World goes, due to various conditions, it is not a good idea. The prospect of Monster Hunter for Switch is something that they will indeed look at in the future, now is not the time.
