The rumors about Black Ops 4 coming to Nintendo Switch are finally debunked so there’s no need to dig more. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 won’t be coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console. As Yale Miller, senior producer at Treyarch, and Matt Scronce, gameplay designer at Treyarch players will have to choose another platform to play the game.
The rumors about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 coming to Nintendo Switch came even to the point where GameStop put displays with a hard copy of the game for the console. By then the rumor was practically set in stone, if GameStop leaks it, it must be happening. But clearly, that’s not the case. Yale Miller, senior producer at Treyarch, and Matt Scronce, gameplay designer at Treyarch stated during a roundtable interview when asked if there’s a Nintendo Switch version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 coming:
“No there is not.” It’s clear that the team at Treyarch is focusing on delivering a big new experience on the usual systems, and porting the game to Switch would be at least a small undertaking whether it was by Treyarch or another company. For now, at least, Call of Duty fans will need to get their fix outside of the Switch.”
With that being said, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will release on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 12th. On PC, the game will be available through Blizzard’s Battle.Net along with Destiny 2. This will let players take advantage of all the features that the platform includes like voice chat, profiles, and statuses.
