Microsoft President Brad Smith has expressed interest in bringing Call of Duty and other Activision Blizzard titles to the Nintendo Switch.
Call of Duty games have gradually ceased to appear on the Nintendo system for a long time now because the games in the most recently released series have very large file sizes and also require a good graphics configuration to run smoothly. but. This is most likely the reason why Nintendo Switch has yet to get any Call of Duty games despite being out for a long time.
In an interview with CNBC, Microsoft President Brad Smith noted that the company wants to bring the Call of Duty branding to future Nintendo devices. Smith also mentioned that Microsoft wants to bring other popular Activision Blizzard titles to the Switch. However they don’t seem to have any concrete plans to do so in the near future.
Microsoft made this announcement in tandem with Call of Duty games continuing to come to PlayStation. Not long ago, Activision confirmed that at least the next three Call of Duty games will still be available on PlayStation consoles because the company has an agreement with Activision. Microsoft has now confirmed that the Call of Duty series will continue to come to PlayStation consoles even after the three previously mentioned sequels.
It seems Activision doesn’t really care about the idea of releasing a Call of Duty game on the Switch as there hasn’t been a single Call of Duty Switch release since the console was released. Many fans of the series who decided to buy a Nintendo Switch console were expecting Treyarch to release Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 as a Switch version as it was the first title in the series to be released after the Nintendo Switch was first announced. head. Unfortunately, however, Black Ops 4 never appeared on this platform.
Activision will most likely face many challenges if it decides to bring the series to the Nintendo Switch, as the Call of Duty franchise has become known for its size. The file size of Call of Duty: Warzone ranges from 50GB to 60GB, while the Nintendo Switch has only 32GB of storage on the system. This can be overcome with a MicroSD card, but in the current state CoD games will still take up a lot of storage space on the device. On the other hand, Nintendo Switch is also capable of running the game if the graphics are downgraded because even DOOM Eternal can be run on this device.
Call of Duty: Warzone would be a great addition to the Nintendo Switch’s library, as the handheld console already has many other popular batlle royale titles like Fortnite and Apex Legends. However, gamers will have to wait and see if the Nintendo Switch will actually have a Call of Duty game in the future.
