Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Destiny 2 dev rules out the game for Switch

Activision and Bungie have no plans to make a Switch version of Destiny 2.

IGN asked project lead Mark Noseworthy about the possibility, who initially said Bungie has “no announcements to make about the Switch at this time”. IGN then pressed further and asked if the franchise could eventually end up on Switch.

Noseworthy said in response:

“I think it’s pretty unrealistic, given we’re an online-only game, right? The Switch, because it’s a portable – and I love my Switch, I’ve got Breath of the Wild here, I’ve got it with me. It’s incredible, I love the console, but in terms of where it’s at, I don’t want leave anyone with the possibility of, like, ‘it’s a thing we’ll consider, maybe next year.’ There’s no plans right now for Switch.”

That unfortunately seems like a pretty clear cut answer. It’s looking like Destiny 2 won’t be on Switch, and at this point, we probably shouldn’t count on the series making any appearance at all.

Saw this earlier. Poor reasoning, but at least he's upfront about I guess.

I think it's pretty decent reasoning to be fair. But that could be just me, I'll wait till more respond to find out if my thinking is weird.

Current bet with d21lewis, if the Switch version of WWE2K18 is the highest selling SKU He gets 3 months of sig control and vice versa. 

Makes sense. Wouldn't mind another Pitfall from Activision though

Don't think anyone expected anything otherwise.

Wait, was anybody expecting this to happen?

I wonder how many people will take this is 'Switch can't run Destiny 2'.

The Democratic Nintendo that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

So it's not coming to Switch because....

Because why?

I don't really see an answer. I would have been fine with him saying "The console isn't powerful enough to run it"

Destiny doesn't really need to be online only. Just like Diablo 3.

I want a new River Raid, too!

OT: Seems logical to me. Honestly, I can't think of a game that would make less sense on Switch than Destiny 2. It'll have loads of expansions and DLC, eating into an already small internal storage; it's focused on online play; its graphics are demanding; and its audience is elsewhere.
