February 21, 2023: With Nintendo finally signing a deal with Microsoft, there's every chance Modern Warfare 2 could arrive on Switch in the near future.

Is Modern Warfare 2 coming to Switch? That's one question on the minds of Nintendo fans following Microsoft signing a ten-year deal with the publisher. Once Microsoft's deal acquisition of Activision goes through, there's a chance Call of Duty titles could head to Nintendo consoles for the first time in years.

Modern Warfare 2 is currently available on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation and as attention moves towards the Season Two update, Microsoft's merger with Call of Duty's publisher continues to rumble on.

Elsewhere in the Call of Duty world, take a look at our guides containing intel on the best Modern Warfare 2 SMG and all there is to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 perks.

Can you get Modern Warfare 2 on Switch?

At the time of writing, Modern Warfare 2 isn't available on Switch. However, with Nintendo's recent deal with Microsoft, there's always a possibility of Infinity Ward's latest title appearing on a Switch in the future.

The prospect of having MW2 on a handheld device is an exciting one but the high-end hardware needed to run the game smoothly could hold it back. As soon as we hear any information on MW2 heading to Switch, we'll update the guide with all the intel.

Modern Warfare 2 Switch release date

If developers manage to optimise Modern Warfare 2 so it runs on Switch, a 2023 release date is likely but if not, there's a chance the game never makes it to Nintendo's platform.

If further developments emerge, we'll update the guide with the latest intel on a release date.

Call of Duty Nintendo leaks

The chances of Modern Warfare 2 appearing on Switch are relatively slim but that doesn't mean Call of Duty won't ever appear on a Switch or other Nintendo consoles. Instead of MW2, perhaps a port of COD Mobile is more likely? The game features a huge number of maps and weapons from various titles and runs well on mobile phones. A Switch version could prove hugely popular.

So far, no signs of a Nintendo Call of Duty are in the works but there's always a chance.

That's everything we know about Modern Warfare 2 coming to Switch. Be sure you check back for all the latest intel on Call of Duty heading to Nintendo consoles.
