In a very important agreement, it is now official the arrival of Call of Duty on Nintendo platforms, including Switch .
We still don’t know if Modern Warfare 2 will already arrive (which you can find on Amazon in the meantime) or if the agreement will be active starting from the next iteration.
In any case, the one recently made official is an epoch-making agreement, which moreover will be very useful for the cause of Microsoft in relation to the agreement with Activision Blizzard.
In demonstrating that Call of Duty is available on many platforms Switch will therefore be very important, while the franchise will also be available on GeForce Now.
But the question everyone is asking is: Call of Duty will it be able to run really well on the Nintendo Switch?
The hybrid console indeed has obvious limitations at the hardware level and is not said that it will be able to withstand the pressure of Activision Blizzard‘s shooter.
And, as Games Radar points out, we should actually have some doubts .
Asked about how Call of Duty games could run on Switch or Nvidia’s GeForce Now platform, Brad Smith of Microsoft quickly glossed over by declaring that he was not “the right person to dive into the architecture of each platform”, later adding:
“We will make our games work exactly as people expect.”
That “as they would expect” isn’t exactly an exhilarating reassurance in this regard.
Considering the dangerous conditions in which very heavy titles such as the latest Call of Duty on Switch sometimes arrived >, that’s not a good sign right now.
The hope is that any Nintendo Switch 2, which continues to appear and disappear from time to time, may have such hardware that we no longer have to worry about the success of porting like this.
In the meantime, Activision Blizzard is putting its weight in the fight between Microsoft against Sony, launching very strong statements against the Japanese company.
