Red Dead Redemption 2 has been widely speculated to be coming to Nintendo Switch ever since the two were revealed too close to each other. However, this may not happen. According to analyst Michael Pachter, the chances are "exceedingly poor."
Red Dead Redemption 2 Nintendo Switch Version Is Unlikely
Pachter, a Wedbush Securities analyst, said that Nintendo Switch owners will not likely get their hands on the Red Dead Redemption sequel. Rockstar Games has only announced the game as a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One title, excluding both PC and any Nintendo console.
"I would say the chances of that are exceedingly poor," he told GamingBolt. "I can't remember any game other than - there was a GTA made for the DS, which came out in 2009 - I'd be really surprised if they wasted their effort to port anything for Nintendo."
According to him, Nintendo Switch may not interest mainstream developers. This means that the analyst thinks that no mainstream title will make it to the console, save for Nintendo's own.
Take-Two Nintendo Switch Collaboration Is In Tow
Meanwhile, the parent company of Rockstar, Take-Two Interactive, is reiterating their support for the new Nintendo console. It can be remembered that the trailer features an NBA 2K title, the availability of which in the hybrid device is unknown.
The company emphasized their partnership in a report from DualShockers but claimed that it still cannot announce games at this point. Take-Two owns Rockstar and 2K, so there is a wide array of games that the handheld-home console can support.
This could mean that Red Dead Redemption 2 in Nintendo Switch stands a chance. There is still hope for the fans who are future owners of the console. Nevertheless, the collaboration is expected to be fruitful. Other titles that could come to Nintendo Switch are Bioshock and Grand Theft Auto.
