The Elder Scrolls Online On Nintendo Switch “Not Going To Happen,” Says Director
The Nintendo Switch continues to find great success in the marketplace, and that has made the system particularly attractive for publishers interested in bringing games to the system. One such game that many have wanted to see come to the hybrid home/portable console is The Elder Scrolls Online. The MMORPG recently sparked hopes of such a port recently with the confirmation that it would be available on Google Stadia at the streaming service’s launch. However, it seems that these hopes may be for naught, as the game’s director has stated that an Elder Scrolls Online Nintendo Switch version won’t happen any time soon.
The Elder Scrolls Online game director Matt Firor was recently interviewed by Twinfinite about the game’s future. Considering that Elder Scrolls Online has come to so many platforms, with the Stadia verison nearly here, might the Nintendo Switch fans yearning for ESO on their platform. Sadly though, this is what Firor had to say when asked if a Switch port could happen:
Not going to happen. The only way it’d work is if there was some kind of streaming service on Switch. It’s just not powerful enough.”
It should be noted that Resident Evil VII and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey were made playable on the Switch through streaming, but these were only available in Japan. There may be a slimmer of hope, but at least in the States it seems pretty unlikely that ESO fans will be able to play the game in a portable setting any time soon. That’s a real shame, because it would’ve been nice to play Elsweyr elsewhere.
