Titanfall 2 Won’t Fit On Nintendo Switch, Says Respawn

by Mike Guarino


With the release of the Nintendo Switch on the horizon and ports of certain games coming to the console this year, it’s naturally going to be common to wonder what other recent games might be coming to the console. We learned recently that Borderlands 3 has a very low chance of coming to the Nintendo Switch, though now we’re hearing about the odds for Respawn Entertainment’s recent game coming to the console.

Titanfall 2 senior designer Mohammad Alavi recently spoke with Drunk Tech Review about Nintendo Switch, saying that he likes the console but noted that it is very under-powered compared to the PS4 and Xbox One. When he was asked whether or not Titanfall 2 would ever come to the Nintendo Switch, he replied with a very definitive “F*** no! You’re not going to be able to fit Titanfall 2 on the Nintendo Switch.”

This definitely isn’t a surprising thing to hear, as the low specs of Nintendo hardware is a major factor in why their consoles haven’t been getting third-party support. While the Switch is certainly more powerful than Wii U, it still won’t be able to manage many of the latest AAA games that are releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Despite Titanfall 2 being very well-received from a critical standpoint, the game was a disappointment when it comes to sales. It launched on more platforms than the first game did and failed to match that game’s launch sales numbers, which many blame on a poor release date that put it in the same window as other FPS juggernauts like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1.

It’s too bad, seeing as Titanfall 2 was easily one of the best games to release in 2016. Respawn Entertainment was able to answer the criticisms from the first game and make a sequel with an improved multiplayer experience and a first ever Titanfall campaign. We loved it when we reviewed it last year, which you can check out by clicking right here.
