While the Nintendo Switch might be less powerful than the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this hasn't stopped several bigger games getting a release on the console. This includes The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and the soon to be released The Outer Worlds.
Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch in an interview with Wccftech discussed Nintendo's hybrid console and says there is still potential with the hardware and platform. He feels there is more developers could get out of the console and says Switch owners will be surprised about some of the upcoming titles for it.
"We are big fans of the Nintendo Switch and feel there is still a lot of great potential in the hardware and the platform," said Karch. "We have had enormous success so far, launching many titles on the Switch, and we are continuing to develop for the platform. We do feel there is more developers can get out of the Switch hardware, and we think fans will be surprised at some of the upcoming titles for it."
Karch did add he is excited for the next generation consoles and is a big fan of backwards compatibility and cross platforms play. He is looking forward to having more power when it comes to developing games for the new consoles.
"There are a number of features we are excited about on both next-gen platforms," he added. "We are big fans of fully backward compatibility and cross-play. We know fans have invested a lot of money in their game catalogs, and to continue playing their favorite games along with new titles is exciting.
"We are also big fans of the social initiatives of both platforms, and how easy gamers will be able to interact with their games on not only the console but other platforms as well. And lastly, the power of the hardware. We, as developers, love more power in our systems when developing games!"
The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will launch in Holiday 2020.
