This could actually be happening.
Well, as unlikely as it may seem, it’s looking more likely that CD Projekt RED’s critically acclaimed and best-selling game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, could very well be coming to the Nintendo Switch. We reported earlier that a retailer version of the game had popped up in Asian retail systems. Those kind of things happen and they don’t mean much (ask Switch fans waiting to pre-order Persona 5 from Best Buy), but now we’ve got two more hints that it is happening.
First, we have the voice actor for the main character, Bob Cockle, giving a bit of a tease by retweeting a mock up of The Witcher 3 on Switch. Of course, that doesn’t mean a lot since a VA probably isn’t directly involved in development. But add that to another teasing tweet by Eurogamer’s Tom Philips talking about a ‘potential’ Switch port and for Nintendo fans to “get ready,” well, we might have something here. You can check out both teases below.
Obviously, this is unofficial as of now, but a lot of smoke out there. It’ll be interesting to see, for sure. Despite being a bit on the older side now, having released in 2015, it’s still considered a technically advanced game and pushed the base PS4 and Xbox One to their limits. What will a Nintendo Switch version look like? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Ahead of the, ahem, *totally unexpected* announce of Witcher 3 on Switch next week, here's Digital Foundry on how it can work.
Get ready, Switcher fans…https://t.co/PK8Gg54VSj
