Is Call of Duty: Vanguard Coming to Nintendo Switch?

Activision finally unveiled Call of Duty: Vanguard and fans everywhere are wondering if it will come to PS4 and Xbox One or have next-gen upgrades for those consoles but one thing we know for sure is that the chances of a Vanguard Nintendo Switch port are slim-to-none.

Sure, the Warzone reveal could've shocked us all by revealing Call of Duty: Vanguard for Nintendo Switch with a solid framerate, but considering how we’ve yet to see a COD game on the handheld/console hybrid, it’s doubtful that Vanguard will be the first game to break that streak.

Is Call of Duty: Vanguard Coming to Nintendo Switch?

To be fair, there are a number of impressive first-person shooters on Nintendo Switch like Doom: Eternal and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, but those aren’t published by Activision and don't increase the chances for Call of Duty: Vanguard to come to this system.

We have seen a number of quality Activision ports on the Nintendo Switch, like Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time and Diablo III: Eternal Collection but it seems that the publisher has no interest in porting Call of Duty: Vanguard.

If the Warzone event does show us a Switch port for Call of Duty: Vanguard, that would be very exciting since there are no Call of Duty games on the system and it could lead to more ports of older games, or even Warzone itself.

Still, given the company’s history with Nintendo Switch ports, we doubt that a Call of Duty game is high on their list of priorities, especially if they have plans to bring in Overwatch 2 or Diablo 4.

Call of Duty: Vanguard will launch on November 5th across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
