Overwatch 2 aims to bring a number of improvements and changes. Not only in the gameplay itself, but also in the visual effects. It turns out that the current Nintendo Switch model could cause problems for developers. As the player noted, during an AMA session with the Overwatch 2 developers, a question was asked about the Nintendo platform. John Lafleur, the game’s technical director, admitted that the console was a slightly bigger challenge.
“As the hardware has improved since the launch of Overwatch, we are also developing the OW2 engine with more cutting edge features. At the same time, we are working hard to ensure that all platforms provide the best experience, even in PvE. Switch is more challenging than others. [platformy] And we’ll have to make some concessions there. Therefore, no more advanced images will be visible. We will first focus on adding gameplay features, and then highlight the additional features as possible.”
However, it is worth remembering the rumors about the new Nintendo Switch model. If it turns out to be true, Overwatch 2 could potentially benefit from the additional hardware power. However, Nintendo does not currently confirm any reports of “Switch Pro”. So it should be assumed that the continuation of Blizzard’s shooter game will look a little worse on this platform than on other platforms.
