Nintendo Switch Loses Out On 'Destiny 2,' Bungie Project Lead Confirms
The Nintendo Switch's continued success does not seem to show any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Nintendo's new gaming platform already appears to have a strong third-party support behind it, so users can expect more games compared to the Wii U. However, some of the AAA titles, unfortunately, won't make an appearance on the new game system. The official gameplay reveal of Destiny 2 also had fans speculate if the sequel will make it to the Switch.
It appears that Nintendo Switch users are going to miss out on another AAA game. According to Mark Noseworthy, Destiny 2 project lead, the developers currently have no plans for a Switch version of the sci-fi shooter. Game Rant claims that Bungie shot down any speculations of the shooter appearing on Nintendo's new console in the future. Therefore, fans hoping for a taste of Destiny on the Switch are most likely going to be disappointed.
IGN reports that Mark Noseworthy said, "I think it's pretty unrealistic," for Destiny 2 to be ported to the Nintendo Switch. Experts have also noted that the shooter relies heavily on a stable online connection for gamers to enjoy. Since the Switch's online service is still unproven, Bungie has made the decision to keep the title away from Nintendo's hybrid game system. Meanwhile, the game's project lead reveals that he really adores the Switch. Therefore, it is more of a hardware limitation that has prevented the game's availability on Nintendo's new console.
Despite his love for the Nintendo Switch, Noseworthy wants fans to know that Destiny 2 is never going to be ported to the new console. On the other hand, Bungie has added a new platform for the sci-fi shooter when it announced the sequel. For the first time, PC gamers will be able to experience the team-based FPS along with console players. The PC version will also be exclusively available through Battle.net, have an unlocked framerate, and boasts an output resolution of up to 4K.
It was already somehow expected that the Nintendo Switch will miss out on a lot of AAA games coming out this year. Destiny 2 has just become one of them along with Overwatch and other high-profile titles from other developers. The game is scheduled to release for the PS4 and Xbox One on Sept. 8, 2017, while the PC version is expected to come out a little later.
