We all have heard of Cyberpunk 2077 by now; the good, the bad, and the uncertain. It is a massive action role-playing game that was developed and published by CD Projekt, the makers of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Cyberpunk 2077 takes place in Night City, an open world in the Cyberpunk universe. Your character is a mercenary viewed from a first-person perspective and is known as V.
It is quite a fascinating game and is probably going to be remembered as the game of the decade. Yes, it has its bugs but this is a massive game and that is expected and will be gradually improved with updates. Still, the game delivers a fascinating story and a thrilling experience.
Now, let’s discuss the possibility of it coming to Nintendo Switch. CD Projekt has a past of bringing their big games to Nintendo Switch and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the best example. Bringing such a massive game to the Nintendo Switch is challenging, of course, but possible and it is considered to be one of the best ports on the Switch.
According to Nintendo Life, John Mamais who is Game Producer at CD Projekt did say, ”Who would have thought a game like The Witcher 3 would be possible on Switch, so who knows? I guess we’ll see, if we `decide to put it on the Switch, if we can do it. Probably not.” So it is not out of the question that it might come sometime in the future but not necessarily anytime soon.
In a new interview with ONMSFT, John Mamais was asked if Cyberpunk 2077 would be coming to Nintendo Switch. He answered that, ”Not as far as I know. Not yet. I don’t know if Cyberpunk 2077 would work on the Nintendo Switch. It might be too heavy for it. But then, we did put Witcher 3 on it and we thought that would be too heavy too but somehow we pulled it off.” He does admit that it would be too heavy but adds that so was The Witcher 3 and they did manage to port it to the Switch.
We can see that the possibility of Cyberpunk 2077 is not out of the question for Nintendo Switch but perhaps wouldn’t be coming within the next 2 years. In addition, we have seen heavy games come to the Switch but in cloud versions such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Finally, Cyberpunk 2077 may be ported to the Switch while downgrading its graphics, or even bringing it in cloud version as other developers have done. Either way, there is a possibility for the futuristic game to make its way to the handheld device. We will update you if and when we learn anything about this story.
