23JanuaryRESPAWN DEVELOPER LAUGHS OFF THE IDEA OF TITANFALL ON SWITCHTime: Jan. 23, 2017 From: SCDKey
EA may consider itself a partner for Nintendo Switch, but you won't see its Titanfall 2 Origin CD Key franchise on the machine anytime soon.
Speaking to YouTube channel Drunk Tech Review, Respawn Entertainment senior designer Mohammad Alavi was emphatic in response to a question about whether a Titanfall 2 port to Switch was possible.
Alavi compared the Switch to its home console predecessors, and their inability to sustain AAA third-party interest
"I was excited about it, because Nintendo's been in such a niche market recently like, you know, catering to the handheld [market] and - I'm going to be honest with you - the kids. They've been so underpowered that they don't have the support of the third parties, because they're all making for PC, Xbox One and PS4, and [Switch] is no different!"
It marks the second major shooter franchise to rule out a Switch port this week. On Monday, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said he doesn't see Borderlands 3 coming to Nintendo Switch because the console manufacturer has "other priorities".
