The Switch 2 will be able to get third party support as long as the Series S is a relevant platform that developers must include when releasing titles. Whether or not it does get that third party support depends more on Nintendo's relationship with third parties than hardware limitations. To an extent this has always been true, as we saw more support for the original Switch as Nintendo became moderately more third-party friendly than it was in the past. 

switch would be getting every third party game if it wasn't for hardware limitations. the days of being exclusive is over and every game comes to every platform it just really depends if the developer thinks it will be worth it to port  a really comprised port.  

This isn't necessarily the case. Most EA games, for example, could easily be scaled to Switch performance levels without too much effort or even compromises. Yet they don't come to the platform, nevertheless. An there is nobody more money-hungry/profit-seeking than EA, in the industry.

“Any time we’re evaluating platform conversations we’re really looking at a couple of things,” said Wilson. “One, does the game really fit the profile of that platform in terms of the control or the community ecosystem? Two, do we think the community playing on that platform would appreciate the game and go there, or would they prefer to play it somewhere else?

“We have a lot of data that would suggest a great many Switch owners also own a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One or a PC and very often choose to play the games that we make on those platforms, even though they have a Switch and they enjoy a lot of great content on the Switch."
