No chance whatsoever. There are only so many people willing and able to buy any one piece of console hardware. Eventually, all significant demand will be addressed. Everyone that wants a Switch will have one at some point, and at that point nobody will buy one unless they're looking to replace defective ones. By 2027 (when the PS6 and Xbox 5 are likely to be released) the Switch will be a decade old. By that point, demand will be so low as to be nearly dead. What demand will still have been unmet by that point? Even systems as mighty as the PS2 and DS reached a peak and then entered a period of terminal decline. There isn't a single shred of evidence to indicate that a system can simply continue to sell in large quantities indefinitely.
