Subscribe To Could Call Of Duty: WW2 Be Coming To The Switch? Here's What We Know Updates
Even though Activision and Sledgehammer Games have already revealed the basic platform roll out for Call of Duty: WW2, there's now some new information that has surfaced that could indicate that the game might be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
VG 24/7 did plenty of sleuthing and found out a number of very interesting things that all started with a photo of Quebec-based studio Beenox, one of the smaller studios that have been working for Activision when it comes to porting games to other systems. The photo of Beenox was tweeted by the company with the Canadian army, while they sported t-shirts of Call of Duty.
VG 24/7 sets the stage by explaining that previously Beenox was responsible for back ports of games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on the Xbox 360 and PS3, as well as helping Infinity Ward and High Moon Studios on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered outing that was packaged in with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare last year. They were also responsible for porting certain Activision titles to Nintendo's platforms in the past.
While that information alone wouldn't be enough to raise suspicions about Call of Duty: WW2 appearing on the Nintendo Switch, the next bit of information was the sort of thing that pushed the sleuthing from baseless rumor to full blown port-possibility.
Apparently, you can link your Nintendo Network ID for your Nintendo Switch to Call of Duty: WW2 through the official Call of Duty website.
VG 24/7 and PvP Live both experimented with linking Nintendo Network accounts to the Call of Duty website, and it turns out that it legitimately works.
Now this alone wouldn't mean much, but VG 24/7 also points out that you couldn't link your previous Nintendo account to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. So the big question becomes: why would they allow you to link your Nintendo Network account to the website for Call of Duty: WW2 if they didn't have plans on releasing the game on Nintendo's newest home console?
This has led to speculation that one of the big reveals taking place during Nintendo's time in the spotlight at E3 this year will be a special highlight of Call of Duty: WW2.
Of course, there's no concrete evidence for this and it's all rumor right now, but usually, when a site allows you to link a platform account to the game it's ahead of a big beta launch. Ubisoft does this 100% of the time with every single beta test they have for their games. You can go to their website and then choose which platform you would like to receive a beta key for. Once you register the platform they'll send you the key and then you can access the game through the respective store.
Activision already confirmed that there will be a Call of Duty: WW2 beta, but according to the official FAQ they state that it's only coming to the Xbox One and PS4. Maybe things will change after E3, but it looks like we'll have to wait to see how this all unfolds. There could be exciting times ahead for Nintendo Switch owners.
