There are rumors circulating that Polish video game developer CD Projekt will be releasing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the Nintendo Switch some time next year, but nothing has yet been confirmed. French wholesale retailer wtt.biz uploaded a listing for the game with the placeholder date of December 31st, 2019, which has since been pulled, but with the game’s large install size and graphical demands, it may have been an error, unless the developer is making it for the next-generation Switch console.

What does give this rumor some hope is that both graphically intense Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and DOOM were successfully ported to the Switch, but with some graphical sacrifices. Or, Nintendo could opt for a stream-only version, like Resident Evil 7, which is only as good as your internet connection.
“The only other option would be streaming the game, just like Resident Evil 7 is in Japan. However, this would likely mean that the title wouldn’t be available for Western audiences, as the internet speeds required to stream games aren’t readily available in the United States just yet, and fans that were able to get their hands on the Japanese version encountered a boatload of problems,” reports Game Rant.
