A new report from an insider suggests that Activision is planning on bringing a fan-favorite Call of Duty title to the Nintendo Switch.
Call of Duty has been nothing short of a resounding success across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, repeatedly breaking its own sales records year over year. Unfortunately, Nintendo Switch fans have missed out on the fun in recent years, with the series notably absent on the hybrid console. Claims made by a Call of Duty insider on Twitter suggest that this is about to change. A fan-favorite Call of Duty title might be on the way to the Switch
This news comes shortly after last month’s reports that Activision will delay 2023’s Call of Dutylikely motivated by technical challenges faced by 2021’s Call of Duty: Vanguard. In an effort to continue Call of Duty‘s yearly release schedule in some capacity, it is rumored that Activision is looking to remaster older titles and release them on new platforms.
This report comes from user RalphsValve on Twitter, who states that Activision is in the process of remastering its older Call of Duty titles for release on new consoles. Titles mentioned include World at War, Call of Duty 1 & 2, and backward compatibility integrations for 2016’s Call of Duty 4 remaster on ninth-generation consoles. RalphsValve further elaborates and states that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered is the title Activision intends to port to the Nintendo Switch.
The details surrounding Call of Duty coming to the Nintendo Switch are still only rumors at this time. However, RalphsValve has leaked many details surrounding 2023’s Modern Warfare 2, with these claims verified by a reputable Call of Duty insider, Tom Henderson. Should Modern Warfare Remastered make its way to Switch, it would be the first premium Call of Duty title on a Nintendo console in almost a decade. The last time Nintendo fans could enjoy a Call of Duty game was 2013’s Call of Duty Ghosts on the Wii U.
After Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision earlier this year, Microsoft’s Brad Smith stated that the company is interested in bringing Call of Duty to the Switch along with other Activision Blizzard titles. This statement and recent rumors might be enough to assure Switch fans that it won’t be too long until they’re enjoying a Call of Duty game. What remains to be seen is if Activision intends to bring their hit battle royale mode, Call of Duty: Warzone, to Switch now that the game has a mobile port underway, leaving the Nintendo Switch as the only platform without the battle royale.
