Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Saber: "There is more developers can get out of the Switch hardware" "Fans will be surprised at some of the upcoming titles for it"

The CEO of Saber, the company responsible for the Switch port of Witcher 3 and the upcoming ports of Crysis Remastered and World War Z has had some interesting and positive things to say about Nintendo's system in a recent interview:

https://www.vgchartz.com/article/443656/saber-ceo-switch-still-has-a-lot-of-great-potential-excited-for-xbox-series-x-and-ps5/

"We are big fans of the Nintendo Switch and feel there is still a lot of great potential in the hardware and the platform," said Karch. "We have had enormous success so far, launching many titles on the Switch, and we are continuing to develop for the platform. We do feel there is more developers can get out of the Switch hardware, and we think fans will be surprised at some of the upcoming titles for it."



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

First will be all jokes and laughs when the rumors start to show up, then people will bite their tongues when it turns out to be true. The Witcher 3 gave us a hell of a ride, can't wait for the next big game

Edit: And yet we can still see people moving goal posts. Gotta love how they backpedaled since the first news of the Switcher

We reap what we sow

There is always more "on the table" so to speak. - It just comes with diminishing returns for the amount of effort/development time/money invested.

The Switch still has a ton more life left in it yet.

That's before the february patch. That's not relevant anymore.

I know Saber is porting big stuff and most of that list is not but some of the higher-profile stuff I could see them porting. Rest of the list is just games I'm still puzzled why some other smaller studios have nort ported them to Switch. I own all of these on PS4/Vita but man it would be cool on Switch.

Hardware limitation 



Just gonna let the games speak for themselves. I trust devs that have actively been porting to Switch than random users on a forum simply replying with "hardware limitations" to a game where "hardware limitations" used to be the excuse for why it couldn't come over in the first place.
