I might be interested in this game if performance is good. Otherwise, I'll buy it on XBX.

Hmmmm. Sounds like IO Interactive is making concessions for the Switch. I wonder why Activision, EA, Ubisoft and other big players won't get in more on these Switch sales. The money is certainly there...

It's seemingly depending on if the game can actually be ported without it being a total hangup. Either that or they don't need Ninty money is my guess.

You're probably right on that. Shame. The Switch could probably sell more than 30 million in a year if more 3rd party devs would flock over to it. Not that Nintendo needs 3rd Party devs for success but it'd be nice.

I think Ubisoft has put in the most effort of all the big Western AAA Publishers.
Right now for Western AAA support I feel Ubisoft > Bethesda > Activision > Warner > EA.
Right now the Switch's main supporters are Indies, AA publishers, and Japanese Publishers.

With all those lego games Warner certainly supports the Switch way more than Activision, who only released like three games on the Switch. Even EA did more than that.

Reason I said Activision > Warner is we got games we didn't expect (or wasn't going) to get. Of course the Switch was going to get the Lego games, the Wii U and PS Vita got them too. Activision gave up on the Wii U except for Skylanders. If we go over Activision's games some we did not expect. Skylanders Imaginators (also on Wii U), Crash N Sane Trilogy, Crash Team Racing, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Diablo 3, Overwatch, Overwatch 2, and most likely Crash 4.
Now if we look at Warner Bros excluding Lego they only have 4 games, one of which also came to the Wii U. Cars 3, Scribblenauts, Bakugan, and Mortal Kombat 11.

Another disapointing cloud game. Not that the game itself is bad. Just the fact that it's cloud based.
I'd assume that Switch would struggle heavily with that game.
But what do you expect from portable hardware? After all, it aint a home console.
