BioShock, Borderlands, and XCOM 2 Collections Are All Heading to Switch in May
2K Games is bringing BioShock, Borderlands, and XCOM to the Switch later this year on May 29.
2K Games is set to bring a whole lot of its most popular properties to the Nintendo Switch in a little over two months.
As part of today’s new Nintendo Direct Mini, it was revealed that three new titles from 2K’s past are set to soon get new Switch ports. BioShock: The Collection, XCOM 2 Collection, and Borderlands Legendary Collection are all set to hit Switch later this year on May 29, 2020. As for just what is included in each of these bundles, well, let’s break it down.
BioShock: The Collection is set to be the same version of the title that released on Xbox One and PS4 earlier this generation. The package contains all of the games in the series including BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite. We previously had a pretty solid idea that this bundle could be coming to Switch when it leaked via a ratings website earlier this year.
Borderlands Legendary Collection, much like BioShock, will also boast three separate titles in its larger package. Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are the three games in question that will now finally be making their way to Switch. It has seemed like a long time coming for these games to at long last head to Nintendo’s platform, but fans of the series will surely be pleased to finally know that it’s happening.

Lastly, with XCOM 2 Collection, this will see the entire XCOM 2 experience in one location. Not only will the base game be included here, but all subsequent DLCs and expansions that arrived after the game’s initial release will also be landing on Switch, too. XCOM honestly kind of feels like the perfect game to put on Switch and I’m really happy that it’s finally heading to the platform.
All in all, this is a really solid slate of titles that 2K is adding to the Switch and I’m hoping that they each work well on the console. Considering many of these titles are from last-generation hardware originally, I expect that they each should more than adequately run at a solid level on Switch. We’ll find out more later this year in May.
