Hi-Rez Studios announcements are in full swing this weekend, with them revealing new modes for Paladins: Champions of the Realm, a revamped map and new god for SMITE, and Paladins Strike for iOS and Android. That’s not all though. In a recent interview DualShockers had with Hi-Rez Studio’s CEO Erez Goren, it was confirmed that the company will be bringing one of their current or future projects to the Nintendo Switch.

That being said, Erez would not tell our Editor in Chief Lou Contaldi which project would be making its way to Nintendo’s highly successful console/handheld hybrid:

Lou Contaldi: “Do you plan on bringing any current or future projects to Nintendo Switch?”

Erez Goren: “Maybe… maybe yes… yes. But I’m not saying which game!”

Hi-Rez Studios have a wide library of titles, and while they primarily develop their games for PC, they have made an effort to bring some of their current popular titles like Paladins: Champions of the Realm and SMITE to PS4 and Xbox One recently. That being said, they have not yet released a title on a Nintendo console.

In general, the MOBAs and multiplayer shooters that Hi-Rez Studios are known don’t have much of a presence on Nintendo systems, so the developer may access to an untapped market on the system depending on what titles they decide to bring over. DualShockers will be sure to let you know when Hi-Rez Studios officially announces a title for Nintendo Switch.
