As expected after radio silence during the game’s initial reveal, 2K Games have confirmed that WWE 2K19 will be swerving the Nintendo Switch. WWE 2K19 will be arriving on just PC, PS4, and Xbox One: the least amount of platforms for the franchise in a long time.
There have been details divulged on exactly why the Switch is being skipped this year or whether it was even in production after the disaster of 2K18. 2K Games issued the following statement to confirm the rumours:
“WWE 2K19 will not be available on Nintendo Switch. 2K is focused on making the best possible experience for WWE 2K fans and will continue evaluating all opportunities to deliver the franchise across additional platforms.”
It’s no surprise that they’re taking a year out from developing for the console after the calamity of 2K18, which is seen by many as being the worst game on Switch. Featuring a framerate so low that even the Ouya would laugh at it, it received a critical hiding and backlash from fans.
Those who purchased 2K18 have had to wait for a long time for intermittent patches to the game, though it’s still almost as broken as the day it launched. The bulk of the patches and the base game file size means that you will need a fairly robust SD card to even play it.
On other platforms, 2K18 was fine but completely unspectacular. There’s not really a lot known about 2K19, but they’re really going to have to change the script — it’s been a complacent franchise for far too long at this point. Bring back GM Mode and then we can talk.
