Activision and Take-Two games coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018

We reported earlier this morning about the Switch’s success so far, but Nintendo didn’t stop there. In the final paragraph of the press release, Nintendo mentions this nugget of information:

This year, Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to Nintendo-published games like Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2 and a new game starring Yoshi. Fans can also expect continued support from major publishers such as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, SEGA, Take 2 and Bethesda, plus a growing catalog of quality content from indie developers.

Now you may say, “Justin, we already know about all of those developers supporting Nintendo because they were in the third-party graphic Nintendo released when they announced the Switch back in 2016”.  You’d be right, but what is interesting to me is the fact that both Activision and Take-Two have not confirmed any new titles for the Switch since then.

Here is a list of what we know about each of those publishers and the games they currently have in development for Switch:

  • EA (1 confirmed title in development) – Fe

  • Activision (0 confirmed titles in development)

  • Ubisoft (2 confirmed titles in development) – Starlink Battle for Atlas, Steep

  • Capcom (6 confirmed titles in development) – Untitled Ace Attorney, Mega Man 11, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, Mega Man X Collection, Street Fighter: 30th Anniversary Collection

  • SEGA (2 confirmed titles in development) – Phantasy Star Online 2: Cloud (Japan), Valkyria Chronicles 2

  • Take 2 (0 confirmed titles in development)

  • Bethesda (1 confirmed title in development) – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

With a rumored Nintendo Direct happening as early as next week (Thursday, January 11th by some sources), maybe we’ll see Activision and/or Take-Two announce what they have in store for Switch owners.  Could we see Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto V make their way to the Switch in 2018? More third-party support certainly can’t hurt.
