Red Dead Redemption 2 And Mass Effect Andromeda Will Not Launch On Nintendo Switch – Rumor

Fans should not be expecting Bioware’s and Rockstar’s next big titles to hit Nintendo’s new system.

While Nintendo apparently has a whole lot third party games and companies lined up for the Nintendo Switch, it sounds like we shouldn’t be expecting two of the biggest games of next year, Mass Effect Andromeda and Red Dead Redemption 2, to hit the system.

This is actually something most of us have known for a while- EA have been very cautious and wary of supporting the Switch, only committing to releasing one platform for the system; meanwhile, Red Dead Redemption 2 was only announced for the PS4 and Xbox One. However, Nintendo insider Laura Kate Dale recently went into the reasons that these games will be skipping Nintendo’s system.

As far as Rockstar are concerned, it sounds like they simply do not trust Nintendo’s ability to build a platform where their games would sell. “Don’t count on anything from Rockstar. Rockstar do not trust Nintendo,” Dale said, adding that the inly scenario in which Rockstar may consider a Switch version for their games would be if third party AAA games sales were demonstrated to be good on the platform.

As for EA and Bioware? Well, apparently they are pretty miffed at the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3 not having sold well, so they aren’t big on supporting the system with more of their games. This is, of course, a load of crock- EA and Bioware released a late port of Mass Effect 3 to the Wii U around the same time that they released an entire trilogy collection, priced exactly the same, for other systems. Why would anyone sensible have bought Mass Effect 3 on Wii U, when they could have bought the Mass Effect Trilogy on Xbox 360 for the same price? I can see Rockstar’s reasoning here, that’s fair enough- but EA and Bioware’s reasoning is fishy and suspect.

The Nintendo Switch is currently slated to launch in March 2017 worldwide.

      i think itll get some but i dont think most will bother. its supposed to be 1tflop maxwell when docked which probably isnt that far off the X1 but it also uses an ARM chip, only has 4GB ram so depends how much of that is reserved for the OS and im sure i read the ram runs at 25GB/s although cant remember if thats undocked or not. To many bottlenecks, ram, ram speed and the arm processor. Even at 720p thats pretty bad and 1080p pfft no chance. if the Xbox1 doesnt run alot of AAA games at 1080p the switch has no chance. It could be upscaled 720p or less i guess to get 1080p

      its probably pretty powerful for a handheld but when you dock it, its still very subpar and even undocked its subpar for AAA.

      It going to all come down to how many it sells but devs already had to downgrade the games for the consoles at the start and they cant be downgraded again to suit the switch’s meagure specs so it will end up like the Wii U but probably earlier than that.

      now there locked in to nvidia really if they want to move forward with it. Nvidia are doing a successor to tegra in a way with there Denver cpu cores and pascal going in the Drive PX2 but i dont think nvidia is planning a small one like for there shield consle as that is canned. Dont think its sold to great so there not doing another.

      They showed the skyrim remaster as a game going to switch but that isnt actually confirmed. If that cant run on it its got no hope for anything new
