Overwatch Rumored to Come to Nintendo Switch

The Amazon listing for an Overwatch Switch case may have just leaked that the game will be seeing a different platform sometime soon. The carrying case was pulled from Amazon‘s server shortly after it was initially posted.

The black and orange case sported the Overwatch logo and the accessory was noted to be ‘officially licensed by Nintendo and Blizzard Entertainment.’ PowerA briefly listed the carrying case on Amazon before the product was removed, though pictures were posted to Twitter and Resetera.

There have been rumors for quite some time about whether or not Blizzard would take their game to the next platform, but they were just that; rumors. If the carrying case gives any sort of insight, players can look forward to a different way of playing Overwatch. (And being able to play the game on the go.) Blizzard has not officially announced a port for Switch, though game director Jeff Kaplan addressed the possibility in 2017.

Kaplan was optimistic but said that the adaptation would be ‘challenging.’ In a Reddit AMA session, Kaplan stated, “Getting the game on the Switch is very challenging for us. But we’re always openminded about exploring possible platforms.” This follows BlizzardsDiablo 3 Eternal Collection advancing to the Switch in 2018.

With Blizzcon 2019 set for November, only time will tell if players will finally get to see their favorite heroes on the handheld device. (Though a Reddit user is now claiming that the release date is set for October 18.)
