Call of Duty: WW2 Switch Speculation

When Call of Duty debuted in 2003, it was an alternative to the Medal of Honor games. Both were set in World War II and featured different approaches the series started. Of course, it has changed routes over the years beginning with Modern Warfare in 2007 and the series is going back to where it started for them. For WW2, it's a change that might be refreshing to some. As far as releases go, it's obvious it will make it to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and computers. However, rumors are coming of another version.

How true this could be, I don't know. Supposedly, there is a Nintendo Switch version being developed by Beenox Games. They have made a number of games for Activision, which includes some Call of Duty games. If the rumors are true, it will be a nice addition for the Switch library, especially to have a third party game. The series has been on other Nintendo systems going back to the GameCube era with Finest Hour. The Wii got five games in the series, and the DS handheld got four. No game made it to the 3DS and the Wii U only got two games, with Ghosts being the last one overall for any Nintendo system.

While I wouldn't expect it to be a seller like the other systems and computers, it could definitely do well on the Switch if it is developed. It's been a long time since we've seen a World War II game come out of a big name company or franchise. Medal of Honor's last WWII games were in 2007. Call of Duty's was World at War in 2008. I think going back to its roots somewhat will get people back on board with the series. It's not a huge guarantee on the Switch, but it might be that way for the other systems.

I would hope it's true, because the Switch still needs to show it can be more than a first party/Mario box after this Christmas season in six, seven months. Nintendo has some heavy hitters beginning in July. They need to keep the momentum going to get third party companies on board and have them stay with them. A Call of Duty game could be a big help.
