RUMOUR: The Witcher 3 May Be Coming to Nintendo Switch

This news should be taken with a mountain of salt, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may be coming to the Switch in 2019.

According to a now-removed listing by French retailer WT&T (as spotted by Loot Pots) 2015’s biggest game may be coming to Nintendo’s newest platform:

The listing comes with several inaccuracies, however. Notably, the title has no EAN code, and the PEGI rating of 12+ is incorrect.

With unexpected ports of graphically- demanding games such as DOOM, DOOM Eternal, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus reaching the console, the Switch is seeing its mature range of games growing. While The Witcher 3‘s staggering open world may suffer from performance issues on the hardware, given Nintendo’s recent history of taking AAA porting risks, a port would not be a massive surprise.

CD Projekt RED, the game’s developer, recently alluded to the possibility of returning to the mainline series.

Thanks to Loot Pots for the tip.
