When it comes to the main FPS franchises such as Call of Duty and Battlefield, for the most part Nintendo’s platforms have usually been ignored. For example EA’s Battlefield franchise has never seen a release on a Nintendo platform, while Activision’s Call of Duty did see a handful of titles released for the Wii and Wii U, although that hasn’t really happened since 2013’s “Ghosts”.

However the good news is that it looks like Activision is bringing Call of Duty back onto Nintendo’s platform, or rather the Nintendo Switch to be specific. This is according to a tweet by industry insider Marcus Sellars who claims that 2018’s Call of Duty will be coming to the Switch. He also “confirms” that the Call of Duty title for 2018 will be Black Ops 4.

However his tweet notes that the Switch version of the game will be a port, meaning that it will not be developed by the game’s main developer, but regardless it is still expected to be a full version of the game, complete with support for DLCs, HD rumble, and even motion controls. Whether or not EA will also follow suit and eventually release a Battlefield title for the Switch, given the success of the console, remains to be seen.

In the meantime there’s no date on when the next Call of Duty title will be released, but perhaps we’ll learn more about it come E3 2018 which is taking place in the middle of the year.
