While Star Wars Battlefront II is set to launch this November on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Nintendo’s console the Nintendo Switch won’t be part of the launch lineup. However, there is a super small chance the game can hit the portable-home console hybrid.
In an interview with GameSpot, Motive Studios (one of the three studios working on the game alongside DICE and Criterion) Producer David Robillard said EA might consider doing a Battlefront II Nintendo Switch version if they see “opportunities.”
This is something we’ll explore if we see opportunities there, but it is not something that’s on the books right now.
Further adding to the complication is that Nintendo Switch hasn’t had a game run on Frostbite yet. For those not familiar, Frostbite is the game enging developed by first-party studio DICE, and is used for almost all of EA’s titles. FIFA 18 on the Switch does not use Frostbite, even though the game’s PS4 and Xbox One versions do.
Would you want Star Wars Battlefront II on the Nintendo Switch? Given the console’s online platform isn’t as fleshed out as Sony’s or Microsoft’s, and Battlefront II’s main draw is multiplayer, I honestly don’t see it happening anytime soon.
