Unfortunately, it looks like there are currently no plans to bring any aspect of Black Ops 4 to Nintendo’s new handheld hybrid.
Why am I not surprised lol
99 percent of multiplatform games being released this year won't be on Nintendo switch and it'll be that way until the end of it's lifecycle. A lot of silly people are going to quickly pay for switches online system when it's utter rubbish but justify it by saying it's cheaper than psn and xbl when those networks have a lot more to offer. The online systems on these consoles should be free like it is on pc and I don't agree with these pay to play online networks but the switches online program is utter rubbish. There'll be a handful of games to play online on switch and you can even communicate with people on the switch. Even if switches online system was 5 quid it would still be too much
False. If you think western games are the only multiplatform games then you clearly know nothing about the Switch upcoming lineup. Because you are already wrong.
Yes I believe that online should be free as well but if you think that the Switch only have a handful of games to play online, you are dead wrong pal. On the top of my head, games that can be played online are Mario Kart, Splatoon, Arm, Smash, Metriod, Pokken, possibly Pokemon, and other unannounced titles. Plus, this is only exclusive games, there are still other 3rd party games such as Rocket League, Fifa, NBA2K, and Doom.
JaguarEvolved: Id say 75%, the switch is a beacon for indies and lesser 3rd partys. Most cartoon kids games and indies run extremely well on the platform and those games dont need this over the top online infrastructure. Do i want more and better? Sure... but im seeing where the switches place is in 2018 and beyond and frankly... it looks much much MUCH brighter than that of the xb1. All i wanted from nintendo was something different from the ps4 and xb1 annd nintendo 1st partys. So far they are delivering that in spades. The issues i have dont seem to be an issue with the possibly +20 million switch consumers so what does it really matter when your rubbish veiws too fall on deaf ears?
Yep the switch can't handle the game and it doesn't deserve it. I bought the system just for exclusives.
I bought my switch for Nintendo switch exclusives. My hopeful port of Tokyo Mirage sessions, SNES and hopefully N64 titles. I wasn't buying CoD on it and don't expect it to release on it
the people that are paying for Nintendo's online are doing so for Smash, Mario Kart, Splatoon, etc. Not for Call of Duty.
Metroid ? Source?
When will people learn that no plans means they are not going to confirm or deny. Confirming will ruin the hype, Denying will ruin the hype. Look at Doom! No plans. Wolfenstien no plans. No plans to release a PS4 PRO. No plans for a FFVII remake.
That only makes the Switch more desirable as far as I'm concerned.
Less games More desirable! Nintendo logic!!
Not less games, just less cash grab CoD.
You would think you would want a major third party to succeed so it will draw more third party titles but you say no. Guess your good with the same couple of recycled Nintendo games every so often.
I see it as a missed opportunity. The Switch is selling really well, so it seems counterproductive not to put software (if it can run it) on a hot selling gaming console.
They would have to sacrifice too much for the game to run correctly on switch. And for what? A few more sales nothing crazy.
@Maybay "...so it seems counterproductive not to put software (if it can run it) on a hot selling gaming console." Nintendo fanboys always use this argument whenever a 3rd party game skips their beloved system. but can you guys actually back it up with credible fact? what other 3rd party games are selling gangbusters on the Wii, Wii U and Switch so far? it's not a new perception in the industry that Nintendo gamers mostly only buy Nintendo's own games with a rare exception of some 3rd parties' ones. just look at Switch's best sellers and you will easily see why 3rd parties aren't THAT enthusiastic in investing into Nintendo's platforms. not only that they are terribly under-powered thus calls for severe downgrade of game assets, Nintendo gamers themselves are not even THAT supportive towards games that are actually released for them too. can't blame them though, because since the Wii, Nintendo consoles have always been demoted to a complimentary console, so why would they buy the worst version of multiplay when they can play the superior version elsewhere for the same price and in the Switch's case, CHEAPER!
"Picks nose" You won't be missed COD. Trust me. At least not from me. I'd play Peggle over COD. Every time.
Not every developer is going to be on board with Switch
Yep, and it's because the Switch's hardware just can't handle it, not without scaling back the games by a massive amount at least, something developers just don't want to do. They want their games on the strongest hardware, not something that is closer to last gen. Nintendo fanboys will say "it's just COD" but they miss the big picture......it's not just COD, there are a ton of games not coming to the Switch that are getting released on every other major platform. I got a ton of disagree's the other day for saying pretty much the same thing, but these are facts. Do people seriously believe that developers will want to scale back their games like they did with Doom? It's too much work, some games will have to be completely reworked just to get them to run on the Switch.
Too much work, and very little reward when Nintendo devices make up only 1% of the sales for big western multiplats.
Yeah I'd agree and I've seen Nintendo fans rush to try and denounce the claims with stats and figures that are fairly skewered and inaccurate. Nothing wrong with the switch I love it but let's be honest it's not a ps4 and despite all the wishing and technical analysis the fan boys create it still doesn't have games like gta v or red dead 2 coming out for it. I'll be buying one eventually I love Mario but I'm realistic in what I expect
Yes, not every game will release for a handheld. It’s amazing that we are seeing some games get ported over from ps4 though! I really don’t think publishers will ignore the switch though, there’s a lot of potential for by far the best handheld ever. Oh and it’s not about what developers want to do, the publisher tells them what to do. Not sure why people here want to hate on the switch, it’s not taking anything away from the ps4 outside Japan. Unless you are salty that Nintendo keeps winning a ton of goty awards?
You got disagrees because it seemed as you doubted the Switch could have a 6 year life-cycle, which wouldn't be surprising looking at past handhelds. Nintendo consoles missing out on big 3rd party games due to weaker hardware or inferior storage media is nothing new and it's been that way for nearly two decades now, Nintendo has showed that they're capable of doing quite well with mainly just 1st party tittles.
True and you be a SEGA gamer the Dreamcast had descent support and where are they now?? Nintendo is still around making a ton of money with the Switch and their games where SEGA isn't.
I'd rather play Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate with decent, respectful human beings, than CoD with the dregs of gaming. That's not a direct slur by the way, just facts.
Not surprising but since it doesn't have a campaign I'm quite sure Switch owners are not bothered in the least.
Western Third party doesn’t need Nintendo. They haven’t needed them in decades.
let's see how far things go like that...
They’ve been doing just fine for almost 25 years. What makes you think things are going to change? Sorry to burst your bubble, but Switch isn’t some messiah gaming device that everyone needs to get on board with or they’ll somehow die. Nintendo needs third party waaaay more than vice versa.
holy sh*t I read your comment completely wrong, I thought you said "Nintendo Does not need third party" which I strongly disagree because after all Nintendo is a game console and it does need the 3rd party. Sorry man but Honestly I think that too, Nintendo switch is not a very great console. I typed "let's see how far things go like that" because personally, I don't think Nintendo can keep this up forever.
Of course they would say this either way, don’t be surprised if they announce it at e3.
If the 3rd party isnt... From the past, cartoony, or scales with ue4... Its not going to happen and if its attempted, the results wont be favorable. Hell, they cant even get dark souls from Sept 2011 to launch day and date as other consoles (another 1 of the switches problems) and that ver doesnt look impressive even if it is a handheld ver. Nintendo fans: We dont need that 3rd party garbage anyhow.
Only shooter I really want on the Switch is Overwatch.
I stopped playing call of duty after modern warfare 2 on the PS3. As stale as this franchise is it's a no brainer why Activision is bold enough to say they won't port it to the switch and for the simple fact that cod games been selling ridiculous numbers without Nintendo consoles for a while. I guess Activision is getting cocky and don't want to learn how to port it to a weaker console.
Don't think it's about learning to port it, it's more about wasting their time on porting it on a weaker console. I doubt cod games have sold well on Nintendo systems.
combatcash That's what I mean, they aren't going to try an port it because they don't want to take time to learn the switch hardware. As good as the switch is selling it's still not a large enough base in Activisions mind to even bother. This will change though if Nintendo continues to sell well.
Well sounds like tryarch isn't willing to put much of a game into BLOP 4 either. Can't really miss a game if there's no game aspect of it. Can't really have a game without a story now can we. It's just a battle sim now
Can't have a game without a story? Would you care to tell me the story of: Rocket League Overwatch PubG Fortnite Minecraft CSGO ?
Well rocker league is a sports game Minecraft has a mission based/ survival feel Fortnight has a storyish mixe Overwatch and pubg dont have stories at all and pubg is more of a battle sim Only one that kinda has a category of it's own is overwatch . Apparently you sir/madam dont pay attention to what you say. You kinda helped prove my point though so thanks
So, what you're saying is that you CAN have a hugely successful game without a story?
@ UKRsoldierPro No lmao. You sure are thick aren't you. I never said you couldn't have a successful game. I said it's not a game without it , it's more of a battle sin, like for your example pubg. I'll say it a different way for the learning impaired. Taking the campaign out of cod is like having a sports game without a season mode. I have a question for you though. Did you like titanfall 1 without the campaign or did you skip it because it didn't have one like a lot of other people did. Personally I thought it felt empty without one. Less of a game and more of a sim without a campaign, like I said originally
I put 6 months into the first Titanfall and loved it. Oh, btw, its lifetime sales were over 8 million. Seems like a lot of people bought it.
You must be daft. Your missing the point still. If you want to make a cod game that's battle royal then fine. However dont have it as a sequel to a game that has a story mode. A battle sim is fine until you cut corners as it is a sequel to one that is not. It should be a lowered price individually based cod and not one that stands as a sequel to another
Why would anyone play the weakest version on Switch when it's better on other platforms?
Why would anyone play anything but PC then? PC always haa the superior version.
LAN play would be dope.
That seems lazy with the game having less content
The game would do the Switch good because these COD fans love to play the same ole shit every year,Why? I don't know, but it sales and that's all that matters.
They should plan to make better games
It blows the game isn't coming to Switch, and although I would not have bought it, there is a fanbase for the franchise. I can't help but see this as Activision's and Nintendo's loss.
They made a CoD for the Vita. A CoD on Switch is only a matter of time. Modern Warfare remastered would have made the most sense. When it went stand-alone on PS4/XB1/PC they could have ported it to Switch. Even a few months later would have been fine. It would sell a ton and move Switch consoles as well. Oh well.
Nothing of value was lost, Nintendo fans. COD is not that good anymore especially the fact that they've removed the campaign for Black Ops 4 which makes it more undesired to get. I know the fanboys from other consoles are laughing at this, but I guarantee a whole lot of you are not going to bother buying the game anyways.
Don't know why you're getting down voted, it's true. COD is complete trash and is constantly losing it's presence with each title released so it decided to hop on the trend bandwagon, the switch doesn't need titles like this when most people complaining about the switch won't even buy this game on the other consoles.
Good : # MeteoidPrime4
I think Switch owners can careless about it coming Call of Duty Black Ops 4 looks like the same game as Black Ops 3 I have a PS4PRO and Xbox One S and I don't plan on buying Call of Duty Black Ops 4 for either console.
I find it really ironic how the people here trying to argue "more games are always a good thing" are the same dumb c*nts who try to argue that backwards compatibility is bad.
I think it has more to do with Nintendo’s online presence not being as robust. This is gonna be a very online focused game.
Makes sense the Switch simply isn't powerful enough for it
It boggles my mind that Nintendo fans are treating this as good news. How are less games from third party developers a good thing? It just shows how developers are ignoring the switch.
I am pretty sure Nintendo fans will not miss it. Heck I anit buying it as well on PS4
considering it's only a MP game anyways, I wouldn't have bought it for my Switch. That being said, I am planning on skipping this entirely and won't even get it for my PS4.
We all knew that was going to happen, yet it's headline news. Mess.
