In a recent video interview to Wired, Respawn boss Drew McCoy said that the studio cannot make any promises for Apex Legends to come for the Nintendo Switch. Apex Legends is a game that has been seen as a competitor to Fortnite, where it stands at a disadvantage for not being for the Switch, and Fortnite does.
In the interview, McCoy was responding to a fan’s question about the game ever coming to the Switch,
If Switch was coming, we would tell you, and we would blast it across the world. We are hearing all the Switch players who say they want the game. I can’t make any promises right now. We have a lot of things that we’re working on, so stay tuned for anything in the future. But currently we don’t have anything to announce.
What is interesting is that he does not completely deny that Apex Legends will event come out for the Nintendo Switch. However, it does seem pretty clear with his statement that Apex will not be coming on the Switch anytime soon or in the particular near future. If they do decide on working for a version of the Switch, it may take quite a long time such announcement.
While the game is not on the Nintendo Switch, Apex Legends is available for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4, and is completely free-to-play. The game has taken by storm and its gameplay features have impressed many fans and players alike.
Some such features have also caught the attention of Epic, as they have now introduced the Respawning and the Ping system, both inspired by Apex Legends. So while Fortnite is learning a bit of gameplay from Apex, Respawn should work on the game being available on all platforms like Epic has for Fortnite.
