Fans of Call of Duty Skeptical of Microsoft’s Claims on Nintendo Switch Port

Players of Call of Duty have significant reservations about Microsoft’s assertions that Activision will be able to convert Warzone 2 to the Nintendo Switch in a practical and on-schedule way. With its acquisition of Activision-Blizzard, Microsoft has indicated that it intends to port the famous first-person shooter game Call of Duty across to the Nintendo consoles.

According to a story published not too long ago, Microsoft believes that Activision could bring Warzone and the most recent Call of Duty titles to Switch. As examples, the claim cites the ports of Apex Legends and Doom. Furthermore, Microsoft has announced that it may finish optimizing the port within six months, which would be the icing on the cake. Fans are, needless to say, shaking their heads in disapproval at this possibility, as it turns out that the last time Activision attempted to convert Call of Duty to Switch, the console overheated!

Fans of Call of Duty ridicule the planned Nintendo Switch port

As soon as fans learned that Microsoft intended to translate Warzone 2 to the Nintendo Switch, they quickly criticized the concept and expressed uncertainty that it could be executed well. “Those Nintendo Switch Call of Duty games will either look like the trash low-resolution Wii CoD versions (you know what I’m talking about), or they will cause the console to light up and explode,” a user named LegacyKilla started on YouTube. “You know what I’m talking about.”

“I have no idea how they hope to accomplish this with the EXTREMELY restricted hardware they are working with,” said the person. Also, the rumor about the system blowing up wasn’t all that far from the truth. CharlieIntel tweeted in 2019 that Call of Duty developers predicted the Switch would overheat because of how the engine was designed.

Several fans concurred. “Will it function? Well, it most certainly will, but the question is: Will you like the adventure? Nobody could believe that,” someone else remarked.

“The graphics should be similar to Golden Eye on the Nintendo 64. Another person chimed up and remarked, “Slapping that with cross-play.” We’ll hold off and see what the future brings, particularly about Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision and whether or not a Switch port can compete with more up-to-date technology. In the meanwhile, we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed.
