A Big No For Destiny 2 on Nintendo Switch

A big news about Destiny 2 also made waves past week. It is quite disappointing that Destiny 2 might not get to the Nintendo Switch at all. While speaking to IGN, Destiny 2 Gameplay Reveal event project lead Mark Noseworthy revealed that the studio (Bungie) has no plans to release Destiny 2on Nintendo Switch. This is why we haven’t yet heard any new about the game’s release on much loved Nintendo Switch.

In response to a question about Destiny 2 Future Release on Switch, Noseworthy commented that;

“I think it’s pretty unrealistic, given we’re an online-only game, right? The Switch, because it’s portable – and I love my Switch, I’ve got Breath of the Wild here, I’ve got it with me. It’s incredible, I love the console, but in terms of where it’s at, I don’t want to leave anyone with the possibility of, like, ‘it’s a thing we’ll consider, maybe next year.’ There are no plans right now for Switch.”

Hopefully, Bungie will release Destiny 2 on Nintendo Switch in near future. As of now, it seems that the developer has no plans to release the game on Switch at all.
