"Call Of Duty WW2" is reportedly coming to Nintendo Switch soon.

The Nintendo Switch, which launched a few months ago, has surely carved out a place among the most successful consoles ever. So, what's the deal?

Beenox, a Quebec-based team which worked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: Black Ops III, recently tweeted a photo of its members hanging out with Canadian military personnel with a mention of "COD".

Now, this is when things start to heat up slightly.

The hype for a new addition to the franchise is so great that Nintendo has taken to selling empty Splatoon 2 boxes to appease the more eager fans. Developer Bungie is even adding more platforms this time around, with a PC version slated for release sometime after the console version.

There is the possibility that an entirely new Call of Duty game is being planned for the Nintendo Switch, or perhaps a watered-down version of Call of Duty: WWII. "Much like our previous Nintendo Switch inventory drops, we recommend that customers get in line before doors open on Friday morning for a chance to purchase". Until today, this action could only be done with the accounts of PSN, Xbox Live and Steam, so it is quite striking to know that now you can also link the user accounts of Call of Duty with those of Nintendo.

The Switch has become a major success and yet there are rumors that new Pokémon games will still be made for 3DS instead of Switch.

IGN reports that Mark Noseworthy said, "I think it's pretty unrealistic", for Destiny 2 to be ported to the Nintendo Switch. The Switch, because it's a portable - and I love my Switch, I've got Breath of the Wild here, I've got it with me.

Although Blizzard revealed that porting Overwatch to the Nintendo Switch could be quite hard, the company is not losing hope.

"Right now there are some technical challenges. We want to understand what their plans are because just because something might not be feasible now doesn't mean that at some point in the future it might be an option for us".
