Respawn Entertainment Comments on Apex: Legends Coming to Switch
Despite the outcry of both Switch and Apex: Legends fans, it doesn't seem like Respawn's latest shooter is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Ever since battle royale games have become popular, fans of the Nintendo Switch have been begging for ports of all their favorite BR games to come to Nintendo’s latest console. And since Apex: Legends is the newest shining star, it’s only natural for fans to want that game to come as well. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen anytime soon, as Respawn Entertainment has finally spoken about whether or not it’s coming and suffice to say it’s not looking good…at least for now.
The response comes in a new Wired interview, where people from a ton of different industries answer questions on Twitter. During one of those interviews with Drew McCoy, the Project Lead at Respawn Entertainment, the developer confirmed that while they have definitely heard the cries for a Switch version, he’s “not making any promises.” While the full answer is a bit longer, that’s essentially the gist of it, but if you don’t believe me then you can check out the link below at the 7 minute 15-second mark.
While I wouldn’t say this is exactly surprising, I’m sure a bunch of Apex Switch fans are pretty disappointed after hearing this news. I wouldn’t completely give up hope, as McCoy doesn’t outright say it’s not coming, however, I’d move on to a new game to want for now.
While it’s not on Nintendo Switch, Apex Legends is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, and it’s available to play completely free of charge.
