Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Port Specialist Saber Interactive Says They are Working on Several New Switch Games

One developer that's had an outstanding year on the Switch is Saber Interactive. If the name doesn't ring a bell, it's the team that most recently ported across The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition to Nintendo's hybrid platform. It also helped out with Call of Cthulhu and Vampyr.

So what are the plans for the future? During an interview with GameReactor, Saber Interactive's Chief Creative Officer Tim Willits revealed the developer is currently creating new games for Switch but chose to remain tight-lipped about what exactly the projects are:

I can't announce anything right now, but we love the Switch platform, and we are creating some new games that will be on the Switch. I'm not going to announce them right now.

In addition to the above-mentioned titles, Saber has also worked on games like Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered and in previous years released both NBA Playgrounds entries on the hybrid system.

Exciting to see what they are working on. One is of course nba playground. Probably a few ports too. Wonder if CD project red gave them another project. Witcher 3 worked out great on switch. World war z might be getting a port too.

What do you guys think it might be?

I'm curious about him using the word "creating"; wonder if he's referring to all new titles instead of more ports.

This is one of the few cases where I actually hope the games in question are ports rather than new games as I can't recall Saber making anything original of noteworthy quality, yet I would love to see more PS4/Xbone ports from them after their amazing work on Witcher 3. RE7 plz.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Well the Witcher 3 team may very well get contracted for more high end ports, since they did such a great job with that one, depending on the cost. So it's definitely something to keep an eye out for.

After the Witcher 3 they've certainly proven themselves extremely capable at bringing "impossible" ports to Switch, I definitely hope they continue to do so.

Wonder if one of them is the recently rated Metro Redux. Kinda hope not as I'd rather they work on something current gen.

I want Binary Domain and VanQuish on Switch on cart.



Bite my shiny metal Cockpit!

Hopefully ones of those are RE2 and RE7.

Good gravy, I would crawl through a mile of broken glass for a competent port of RE7 to Switch by a studio like Saber or QLOC. It's one of my most wanted games, but I don't wanna have to buy a whole console just to play it.

And it would be an easy port too. But crapcom is crapcom.
