Since the system first appeared in 2017, it has been a difficult battle for developers porting next-generation titles to Switch.

I’ve seen some “impossible” ports like The witcher 3 And DOOM, Often, studios need to be seriously configured to launch and run certain games on Nintendo’s hybrid hardware.When it comes to that Overwatch 2 Naturally there is no difference. During Reddit AMA, which celebrated its fifth anniversary with the Overwatch team at the end of May, concerns were raised about the iteration of the next release of Switch and whether it would be released.

At the same time-it made us wonder how Other If it’s a more demanding game, the side of the sequel will hold up to the switch. Performance is a big topic and the original title is about 30 fps. Many have argued that this is not enough for a competitive shooter. In addition, cross-play is now enabled.
