Earlier Blizzard announced and confirmed that Diablo 3 would be arriving on the Nintendo Switch. This would mark the first time in the past decade or so that a Blizzard game has launched on a Nintendo console (during the company’s earlier years, they had several games that launched on the SNES).


Now it seems that Blizzard is interested in getting more games onto Nintendo’s platform because speaking to GameSpot, Blizzard’s Pete Stilwell said that bringing Overwatch onto the Switch is something that is feasible. “Anything is within the realm of possibility. Our team was given the task to work on this. If [Overwatch developer] Team 4 picks up that endeavour, that’s on them. As of right now Diablo is our only focus on Switch.”

Of course whether or not Blizzard wants to pursue that remains to be seen. One of the problems could be the fact that Overwatch is not cross-platform compatible, meaning that as well as the Switch is doing, compared to the PC, Xbox One, and PS4, there might not be as many players readily available for matches which could hamper the game’s success.

That being said, this is not the first time that Blizzard has expressed interest in Overwatch coming to the Switch, but whether or not they go through with it is another story. In the meantime Blizzard does have other games that would probably be great on the Switch, such as Hearthstone, although last we heard the company had no plans to port the game just yet.
