At least WWE2k18 isn't Dead Rising Wii. The 1 Zombie lol.

It would be nice playing it on the go. Maybe they need a team like Panic Button that ported Doom Switch to help them port it or maybe there's another reason we don't know about?

I heard that people say that the cause is unreal engine 3 not being supported on the switch. I'm not sure if the studio confirmed it.

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.

That's their choice, really. Probably would've helped them significantly with sales, considering how well the Switch indie Renaissance is going, but if they want to throw away money (or, more likely, it's too cost-prohibitive to port due to current sales figures/budget issues) that's well within their rights



You should check out my YouTube channel, The Golden Bolt!  I review all types of video games, both classic and modern, and I also give short flyover reviews of the free games each month on PlayStation Plus to tell you if they're worth downloading.  After all, the games may be free, but your time is valuable!

That wasn't even rude, snarky maybe but not rude or unprofessional. You got a bunch of different platforms available to play it in, do you really NEED it for the Switch?

Is a bit disappointing, probably will get this game for PC when it's on a good sale

I'm on the side that they could have handled this situation better, such as an official statement in regards as to why. Sure, there's no need for them to do that, but I think that would help clear this quest of a Switch version rather than how they're handling it now.

Now I do wonder if they have made a statement on it before. If they did, I can understand why they give answers like the ones shown.

I feel it's unfortunate that they won't be porting it to the Switch, as I would have liked to have gotten it on that, but it's they're decision and I'll respect that. Though more often it's said porting to the Switch not such a difficult task, so I wonder about this case.

I find it funny that people praise that Japanese matey for being a dick to port beggars but criticise these guys for doing it. I guess which side the port beggars are on makes all the difference...

There's a difference between those 2 situations though. A Bayonetta 2 port doesn't seem to be possible since Nintendo helped produce the game, meanwhile as far as I know A Hat In Time doesn't have that issue. So asking for a port seems like a fair thing to do.

I like this dev's approach. Switch port begging has gotten pretty embarrassing.

Is it wrong for people to want more games on particular systems? I'd like there to be as many on the Switch as possible.

It's fine to want the game, but when the answer's no, it's no.

That's fair. I just mean asking for ports in general.
