Jeff Kaplan, director of Overwatch, discusses the hurdles with a port to the Switch.

In a recent interview with Express Online, Jeff Kaplan clarified early comments he had made around he likelihood of Overwatch reaching the Switch. 

Last month the director of the hugely successful Blizzard game told Reddit users that Blizzard was “open minded” about the possibility of the game debuting on Nintendo's new platform.

Kaplan’s recent follow up with Express Online delved into the idea further with Kaplan reiterating his open mindedness towards the idea.

However, Switch users shouldn’t hold their breath. While Kaplan said they may reconsider a move to the Switch in the future currently a move to the Switch would require Blizzard “revisit performance” of the title. Kaplan also cited complexities with simultaneous patching as another hurdle to introducing the game to the Switch.
