I'm a little disappointed that this game will not be available for the switch. However, this behavior from the studio is not good. I know that they are probably tired of getting these responses daily. But that does not make it right for Gears to show unprofessional behavior for their main twitter account.
What parts of the tweet do you consider unprofessional? The one with hand clapping emojis?
The fact that he got his point across with an "exclamation mark" to a pretty dumb comment he may have replied to many times before, without calling the other person an idiot is perhaps a sign of someone with a great deal of patience. If he had stooped to personal attacks, I would have agreed with you.
The funny thing is the stereotypical response might end up begging the good ol' "We already have Odyssey, why would we want your stupid game!" That was the response for Yooka Laylee by the time it ended up coming out ...
I don't think there's anything wrong with "port begging", it just gets annoying when repeated. The point about having no obligation is really quite funny yet sad. We don't need to ask a dev every day. Besides, let's be honest, we all know this is coming to Switch eventually. It will be financially stupid not to port it. I just don't think it's happening in the near(10+ months) future.
Also different degrees of port begging. "I love your game on the ps4, any chance of it coming to switch" is WIDELY different than someone screaming "SWITCH VERSION!".
Now multiply "SWITCH VERSION!" by X amount of times per day. Per week, Per Month. Per user. I can absolutely see why someone would get terse from that.
And sprinkle a few "Gamecube loveletter = should come to Switch" comments on top.

I am curious as to why they won't put this on Switch, but I can understand why devs don't usually share that kind of info. Especially in random tweet convos.
