Nintendo “Would Love” for Red Dead Redemption 2 to Come to the Switch

Home » News » Nintendo “Would Love” for Red Dead Redemption 2 to Come to the Switch

With Nintendo being as successful as they are with their little system called the Nintendo Switch, it’s no surprise that the company wants to see every big AAA game to come to the platform, including Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2.

Now, since Red Dead Redemption 2 has been in development before the inception of the Nintendo Switch, there was no way for the western open-world shooter to be developed for Nintendo’s console, but in terms of looking at the future, there is still a possibility for future games of similar high regard to come to the hybrid system.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Reggie Fils-Aime –the president of Nintendo of America– speaks on the success of the Switch, the incredible launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and most importantly, why Red Dead Redemption 2 is not on the Switch:

HR: “That being said, when a game like Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out, is that something you’re interested in having on the Switch?”

Reggie: “Absolutely. We’d love for it to be there. But again — and this is where there needs to be an understanding of just the development process — Red Dead has been in development for years, time that predated any communication of Nintendo Switch.

So, from the developer’s mentality, they need to move forward and finish the game they’ve been working on and then be in a position to look at other opportunities. Any game from a key third-party that’s coming out now, typically that development started well before any conversations about Nintendo Switch.

What happens moving forward? We’ll see. But that’s how you wind up with a situation with Red Dead not being available on our platform.”

Would you guys want to play Red Dead Redemption 2 on the Nintendo Switch? Or do you think the hybrid system would not be able to handle the open-world title when it comes to graphical power? Let us know your thoughts by commenting down below!

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Seemingly Leaked For The Nintendo Switch

Red Dead Redemption 2 has eaten up a lot of hours of our time and yours since it released late last year, and it would be really, really efficient if we could take the game on the go. There’s only a certain amount of time you can skip school to play the game after all.

If, say, the Nintendo Switch were to get Red Dead Redemption 2 it’d be a revelation, it’d be amazing, it’d be pretty much never likely to happen. At least, that’s what we thought.

It seems the dream might be more likely than you might have guessed, as Target Australia has advertised the game as being available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch [via NintendoLife].

On page 12 of the newest Target Australia catalogue you can see the game is showing as being available for purchase on all three of the consoles, though it remains to be seen whether this was a leak or just an oversight on Target’s part.

Check out the catalogue snippet in the image below (thanks, NintendoLife!)

April Fool’s is officially over, but surely this has to be a joke?!

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an absolutely massive game, and it’s hard to see how it could fit in all its glory onto the Switch.

We’ve heard that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt might be headed to the Switch which is barely believable in itself, but RDR2? It doesn’t seem as though the Switch has the capability to ensure a smooth and seamless performance like its Xbox One and PS4 counterparts…

Rockstar Games and Target have yet to comment on the catalogue listing.

What do you think about the ‘news’? Genuine or just wishful thinking? Maybe it should come to PC before it hits the Switch…

Nintendo on Switch’s success, wanting Red Dead Redemption 2 on Switch, Smash Bros. Ultimate’s content, physical vs. digital, Classic consoles, and Nintendo pushing to be different

Nintendo has been riding high ever since the Switch launched. The system has seen major success, and continues to reach new heights. In an interview with HollywoodReporter, Reggie Fils-Aime discusses numerous elements concerning the Switch, as well as Nintendo’s approach to content, and much more.

On what’s making the Switch successful

I think it’s a number of things. First, consumers look at Black Friday as an opportunity to get their holiday purchasing going. They look at values out of the marketplace and for us, it was really important to message the type of value that we will have with Nintendo Switch during the holiday season. For Black Friday, specifically, we had a hardware bundle that included Mario Kart 8 Deluxe — arguably one of our best-selling games — a game that consumers are already voting with their wallets that they want. That bundle sold out immediately. Then, we had a strong dedicated offer for Cyber Monday and this was offering $35 in e-shop credit when you bought through the dot-com retailers. What we saw that was gratifying is that both of those deals sold out quickly and then consumers started buying stock at regular price. That’s what we expect to continue. There’s going to be no more significant deals for Nintendo Switch. We’re only in our second holiday and the consumer is indicating that, for them, this product, with this great alignment of software really is a must-have product and something that they need to have now.

On wanting Red Dead Redemption 2 on Switch

Absolutely. We’d love for it to be there. But again — and this is where there needs to be an understanding of just the development process — Red Dead has been in development for years, time that predated any communication of Nintendo Switch. So, from the developer’s mentality, they need to move forward and finish the game they’ve been working on and then be in a position to look at other opportunities. Any game from a key third-party that’s coming out now, typically that development started well before any conversations about Nintendo Switch. What happens moving forward? We’ll see. But that’s how you wind up with a situation with Red Dead not being available on our platform.

On the breadth of content in Smash Bros. Ultimate

I’ve had the good fortune to meet me Mr. [Masahiro] Sakurai, the key developer, many times, and Mr. Sakurai is a student of video games — and what I mean by that is he not only loves and plays Nintendo content, he loves and plays content from all game developers, all platforms, all systems. So, Super Smash Bros. emanates from that love for video games and video game history. He and his team are so skilled to be able to create this experience and really to make it fun. Oftentimes, fighting games, maybe because the balance between characters isn’t quite right, can end up being not a lot of fun. But he’s a master of making this type of experience fun, compelling, introducing different modes and different elements. The spirit component [collectible cutout caricatures of video game characters that lend bonuses to the player’s fighter] that’s been added in is a wonderful feature. It’s almost a way as a player to hack the game, by adding spirits and adding different abilities, changing the nature of a particular character and how they play. It is due to [Sakurai] and his skill that Super Smash Bros. as a franchise and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, in particular, is as compelling an experience as it is.

On physical vs. digital sales

Nintendo’s philosophy is we want the consumer to buy the content in the way that they want, whether it’s physically or digitally. Additionally, we work with our retail partners to enable them to sell the product physically or digitally. Earlier, I touched on Amazon and their best-sellers. Their number one best-seller last time I checked was physical copies of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The number three seller was digital versions of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. So, we enable them to sell it either way, we enable the consumer to buy it either way, and from that standpoint we’re agnostic. Maybe what’s driving digital, broadly speaking, are things like indie games, which are largely digital-only; DLC and other added content which is digital-only; you’ve got each of the major players offering some sort of subscription program which is digital-only. These are unique elements that you can’t buy physically that help move the percentage a little bit further from a digital perspective.

On the potential for more Classic consoles

There’s no ability for add-on content with our classic consoles, so when you purchase the console it’s coming with that set roster of content. We worked very hard, both for the NES Classic and the SNES Classic, to really have the best games that defined that generation. We’ve said that the current systems are the extent of our classic program. We’ve also been clear that, at least from an Americas perspective, these products are going to be available through the holiday season and once they sell out, they’re gone. And that’s it. The way that consumers will be able to continue participating with our classic content is going to be through Nintendo Switch Online, and we just released three new games (Ninja Gaiden, Wario’s Woods and Adventures of Lolo) from the NES generation onto that platform. We look at that as the main way that consumers will be able to experience that legacy content.

On Nintendo’s push to innovate and be different

It is absolutely a conscious decision to innovate and to do things differently, to do things that are unexpected, to do things that consumers didn’t know they wanted but once we deliver that innovation it becomes, if you will, the new way of doing things, the new normal. Going back in our history, whether it’s the D-pad, which Nintendo introduced; our controller was the first with a joystick; we first introduced touchscreens to gaming with the Nintendo DS; we made AR broadly available to tens of millions of consumers, first with the 3DS and then it went to a whole new level with Pokemon Go. There are so many innovations that we have brought, not just to the video game industry, but to entertainment at large that it is core to our DNA to constantly innovate and constantly bring new things to bear. Taking those risks doesn’t come without a potential downside. One of the quotes that I love, and this is from [deceased former Nintendo CEO] Satoru Iwata, is that, as a company, we run toward risk. It’s a mentality of always pushing the envelope to be trying something new.

Target Says ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Is Coming to Nintendo Switch

By Tyler Fischer – March 29, 2019 07:56 pm EDT

There’s a good chance Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC. Numerous leaks have suggested it’s already happening in fact. But there’s been no leaks suggesting the ambitious open-world western is coming to Nintendo Switch. Just contemplating the idea the game could come to the Nintendo system sounds absurd, but here we are, doing just that, thanks to Target Australia.

I know what you’re thinking: there’s no way. There’s no way one of the most technically demanding and ambitious games of all-time is coming to the Nintendo Switch. The chances the Switch could run the game without substantial downgrades are very slim, and why would Rockstar Games want to dilute the experience it spent years and years making just to sell the game on Switch? Doesn’t seem like a thing Rockstar Games would be interested in. Yet, again, here we are, contemplating it doing just that, thanks to Target Australia.

So what did the Aussie branch of Target do? Well, on page 12 of its latest catalogue, Target lists Red Dead Redemption 2 not just for PS4 and Xbox One, but Nintendo Switch as well. Of course, Target has since updated the catalogue so that only a PS4 and Xbox One version of the game are listed, but not before Nintendo Life caught glimpse and screenshoted the original catalogue.

So, is Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to Nintendo Switch? No, I don’t think so. This was more likely just a mistake by whoever put the catalogue together. Or maybe said person is just a really big Nintendo Switch fan and is trying to will into existence a reality where they can role-play as a cowboy like everyone else did last year. It’s also possible Target Australia knows something we don’t. This seems unlikely, but who knows.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for PS4 and Xbox One. For more coverage on the critically-acclaimed and popular open-world western, be sure to peep all of our previous coverage of it by clicking right here.

Is Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to Nintendo Switch? Latest news and updates

Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most successful games of recent years, especially on PS4 and Xbox One, but will it ever come to Nintendo Switch?

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been a raving success and it received “universal acclaim” from critics, according to Metacritic.

It is the highest-rated PS4 and Xbox One game on the website, and it also recently launched for OC.

And it’s no shame to admit Nintendo users want to take part in the adventures of the Van der Linde gang.

The open-world epic from Rockstar Games was released in 2018, and is the third entry in the Red Dead series.

So will the action-adventure game be coming to Nintendo Switch ? Here we explore.

Is Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to Nintendo Switch?

Before recently, all signals pointed to the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 would not come out on Nintendo Switch.

But a recent clue has cropped up which could suggest it could happen.

A listing for a Red Dead Redemption 2 for Switch has recently popped up on Hong Kong-based reseller Instant Gaming. The listing suggests a 2020 release date.

However, we would still take this with a massive pinch of salt, because it’s not unheard of for third-party online resellers to make placeholders for games that don’t exist.

Ultimately, it is the size of Red Dead Redemption 2 which would hinder it from coming to the Switch.

But before you get too disheartened, it hasn’t actually been ruled out completely by Nintendo.

Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America President, said he was “absolutely” interested in porting the game to Switch.

But he suggests the reason the game isn’t on the console already is due to poor timing.

And while he doesn’t rule out the hypothetical possibility of Red Dead 2 coming to the likes of Switch, it doesn’t seem like it’s likely.

Latest Games News

He told The Hollywood Reporter: “We’d love for it to be there. But Red Dead has been in development for years, time that predated any communication of a Nintendo Switch.

“So, from the developer’s mentality, they need to move forward and finish the game they’ve been working on and then be in a position to look at other opportunities.”

He explained how “any game from a key third-party that’s coming out now, typically that development started well before any conversations about Nintendo Switch.

“What happens moving forward? We’ll see. But that’s how you wind up in a situation with Red Dead not being available on our platform.”

Nintendo Reveals Why Red Dead Redemption 2 Didn’t Release On Nintendo Switch

One of the most anticipated video game releases of 2018 was Rockstar Games Red Dead Redemption 2. Players would once again trade in their supped up vehicles for a horse and six-shooter as they embark on another outlaw journey set in the Wild West. Set prior to the events of Red Dead Redemption, this game made it easy for newcomers to jump onto the game along with the diehard fans of the franchise. As the game was announced and slowly got close to its initial release date, two platforms, in particular, were missing from the mix. Unless you had a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, the latest triple AAA video game release from Rockstar Games would quickly pass by leaving you out of the loop.

While it’s expected the Red Dead Redemption 2 video game will eventually launch on the PC platform, Nintendo recently commented on why the video game never launched on the Nintendo Switch platform. This bit of news came from the Hollywood Reporter who spoke with Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America President. During the interview, Red Dead Redemption 2 was brought up where Reggie revealed that the developers didn’t have enough time to put the Nintendo Switch into focus for the game.

We’d love for it to be there. But again — and this is where there needs to be an understanding of just the development process — Red Dead has been in development for years, time that predated any communication of Nintendo Switch. So, from the developer’s mentality, they need to move forward and finish the game they’ve been working on and then be in a position to look at other opportunities. Any game from a key third-party that’s coming out now, typically that development started well before any conversations about Nintendo Switch. What happens moving forward? We’ll see. But that’s how you wind up with a situation with Red Dead not being available on our platform.

Red Dead Redemption 2 started developed long before any murmurings got out about the Nintendo Switch and as a result, Rockstar Games didn’t have the opportunity to put the platform into the mix as they were developing the game. This is also the case for several big-name third-party video game titles and not due to any limitations of the Nintendo Switch hardware or concerns of the game content being released for the system.

This is good to know for the future as we may start seeing more games being announced that includes the Nintendo Switch as a platform release. Of course, that also means that the games announced may likely be too far into development to allow a launch on the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps Rockstar Games may look at the platform again for a later release but as of right now there is no indication that we can expect to play Red Dead Redemption 2 on Nintendo’s latest console hybrid.

Rumor: Red Dead Redemption 2 for Switch Leaked By Target

An advertisement in circulation from the retailer Target Australia potentially leaks Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 for the Nintendo Switch platform.

Several months ago, the retiring president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime, explained to Red Dead Redemption 2 fans why Rockstar Games’ open world action-adventure epic is currently not a Nintendo Switch release. Now, though, should a recent piece of supposedly leaked information by Target Australia be accurate, then RDR2 could very well be coming to the Big N’s hybrid mobile console at some point in the future.

This much has been discovered on page 12 of Target Australia’s latest catalogue, with the retailer listing Red Dead Redemption 2 as being available on its current platforms of PlayStation 4 and Xbox, as well as on the Nintendo Switch. Following this particular find, Target has since updated the listing in its online catalogue to reflect a change that removes the Switch as one of the game’s supported platforms, with it now only showing Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox One and PS4.

Bearing in mind the subsequent changes that Target has made to its advertisement, there’s a good chance the original information was simply shared in error, and that there are no plans to bring Red Dead Redemption 2 to the Nintendo Switch. After all, retailers occasionally make mistakes with video game listings, and wind up amending the oversight after gamers find and publicize the incorrect detail.

What’s more is that with RDR2 being such a large and technically demanding game, it seems like a stretch that the Nintendo Switch would actually be able to support it – that is, unless Red Dead Redemption 2 received a graphics downgrade of major proportions to make it palatable on the system. Nevertheless, stranger things have happened.

All things considered, it would definitely be interesting to see what Red Dead Redemption 2 could be like as a Nintendo Switch experience. Recent reports have indicated that the Big N is working on a Switch “Pro”, which could provide a boost in power compared to the original version of the console, but it remains to be seen if such an increase in hardware heft would be strong enough to run a title like Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Reggie Attempts To Explain Why Red Dead Redemption 2 Isn’t On Nintendo Switch

Hollywood Reporter has been given the opportunity to chat with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to discuss a variety of topics. One question posed to Reggie was why Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t present on the Nintendo Switch. Reggie says it was down to the fact that development started on the game many years ago.

That being said, when a game like Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out, is that something you’re interested in having on the Switch?

Absolutely. We’d love for it to be there. But again — and this is where there needs to be an understanding of just the development process — Red Dead has been in development for years, time that predated any communication of Nintendo Switch. So, from the developer’s mentality, they need to move forward and finish the game they’ve been working on and then be in a position to look at other opportunities.

There’s no way on earth this game will run on the switch.
Nothing to do with the development.

It may grace a Nintendo console, but it will probably be when the games about 5 yrs old and Nintendo have a console capable of running it.

Honestly we may be getting a more powerful switch next year. And its not that much about hardware, there is a lot they could do that wouldn’t effect gameplay but would allow the game to run on switch.
That said, i think the game would be a much better experience on Xbox. Same with ark…..why is that even on the switch?

It has everything to do with hardware. You have to understand that the only reason that the Switch can get some of the more visually interesting titles like Doom, Wolfenstein 2, and Warframe is because they’re corridor shooters that are 1080p60 on other platforms so they were able to drop the resolution by 60% or more and half the frame rate. Even then, they had to lower texture quality and lower polygon counts and those games still have significant frame dips.

You can’t do that easily with open world games that run at 1080p30 on other systems.

If a new version of the Switch can come out next year with 8GB of RAM with an SOC based on the Tegra X2 and it would still be way weaker than the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It would have less bandwidth than the Xbox One WITHOUT the on-chip memory and with at least half as much actual GPU power and neither of those things would do much to counter-act the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 is 105 GB on XBox One and 96 GB of PS4. It literally comes on TWO Blu-rays.

Now the Switch version would only get the lower quality models and textures and it has a newer, better form of texture compression so that would make it smaller but that wouldn’t even bring the game down to half it’s size because of all the audio. Since it’s an open world game, the ability to load chunks of the game world fast enough is extremely important and Switch game cards are about 1/4th the speed of the hard drives on other systems. Now if they applied lossless compression on a lot of the games assets then it would bring down game size but only CPU intensive compression algorithms would even make a dent and without hardware decompression that would only serve to increase load times and lower performance more.

You’d be surprised as would I.
The internal tech of the Switch is fairly underpowered compared to the competition, but some devs (looking at you Panic Button) have worked absolute wonders on the hardware.

We can do quite a lot with very little when it comes to tech. We just haven’t had to approach developement from that perspective in over a decade.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Pro Controller Texture Sparks Hopes of Switch Port

An in-game image of a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller recently got fans discussing the possibility of a Red Dead Redemption 2 Switch port.

Red Dead Redemption 2 players have discovered an image of a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller in the game’s files, leading to speculation about a possible Red Dead Redemption 2 Switch port. Rockstar released the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC port in November 2019.

The idea of a game with graphics as good as Red Dead Redemption 2′s heading to Nintendo’s hybrid-handheld system may seem ridiculous, but it wouldn’t be the first visually impressive game to make the jump. Bethesda and Panic Button produced a great port of 2016’s DOOM on Switch in 2017, and the game’s 2020 sequel, DOOM: Eternal, is apparently planned to release on the system as well. CD Projekt Red recently released The Witcher 3 on Switch, proving massive, western open-world games could fit onto the Nintendo’s newest console.

Twitter user Tez2 shared an image of a Red Dead Redemption 2 UI-style Nintendo Switch Pro controller which was found in the game’s files. Some users replied to Tez2 expressing confusion and excitement about the possibility of a Switch port, but others were more skeptical. A poll on Resetera later asked users on the forum what they thought the image meant, and the majority of voters agreed it most likely had nothing to do with a Switch port. Instead, most thought it simply means Rockstar was or is planning to opt into Steam’s Switch controller support.

Even if Steam didn’t support Switch controllers, there are other factors which make a Red Dead Switch port unlikely. The Witcher 3 had to receive significant graphical downgrades in order to make the Switch port work – and that game is even older than DOOM. While The Witcher 3 looked great for a 2015 game, 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2 had the benefit of three years of advancements in development. It’s possible Rockstar could essentially just crank all the graphics sliders to their lowest settings, but fitting a game that huge and recent onto the Switch would probably mean cutting more corners besides graphical ones.

A last hope for the Red Dead Switch port, however, could be the introduction of a Switch Pro model. Rumors and speculation about the possibility of a more powerful Switch revision have been circulating for some time, and Nintendo’s hybrid console appears to be doing so well – having surpassed 15 million units sold by October 2019 – that it only makes sense Nintendo would want to keep the console relevant for as long as possible. Among the possible Switch Pro features, a more powerful CPU and better screen could help make a Red Dead Redemption 2 Switch port look a bit less potato-y.

Red Dead Redemption 2 released for PS4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018. It later came to PC in November 2019.

Nintendo talks Red Dead Redemption II on Switch

Share this with

The only reason Rockstar’s cowboy classic isn’t on the Switch is because of bad timing, or at least that’s what Nintendo says.

With games like Doom and Civilizations VI appearing on Switch, Nintendo’s support from third party publishers is slowly improving. Especially when games as thoroughly un-Nintendo as Mortal Kombat 11 get announced for the Switch.

And yet the idea of something as technically complex as Red Dead Redemption II appearing on Switch seems impossible, even though Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aimé has just implied it was merely a question of logistics.

In a new interview with Hollywood Reporter, Fils-Aimé dodges a general question about third party support before being asked about Red Dead Redemption II specifically.

‘We’d love for it to be there’, he says. ‘But again – and this is where there needs to be an understanding of just the development process – Red Dead has been in development for years, time that predated any communication of Nintendo Switch.

‘So, from the developer’s mentality, they need to move forward and finish the game they’ve been working on and then be in a position to look at other opportunities. Any game from a key third-party that’s coming out now, typically that development started well before any conversations about Nintendo Switch.

‘What happens moving forward? We’ll see. But that’s how you wind up with a situation with Red Dead not being available on our platform.’

In the broadest sense Fils-Aimé is correct, in that work on Red Dead Redemption II would’ve started long before Rockstar had any idea what the Switch was.

Other developers – such as Bandai Namco with SoulCalibur VI – have also used the long development time of games to explain the lack of a Switch version, indicating that they would’ve released the game on Nintendo’s console if they’d known about it earlier.

But it does ignore the fact that Red Dead Redemption II’s graphics are well beyond the capabilities of the Switch. Not only that but the game comes on two Blu-rays and even Rockstar’s own L.A. Noire, which is essentially a last gen game, has to rely on a mixture of cartridge and downloadable data to run.

It’s also hard to imagine the recently launched Red Dead Online mode working on the Switch, given Nintendo’s much more primitive online service.

But then Fils-Aimé is essentially just a marketing man and his comments always tend to be very superficial.

As an example, he’s also asked about the possibility of another Classic Mini Classic, to which he gives the usual answer that future retro content will all be via the Nintendo Switch Online service – even though it currently only supports NES games.

‘Red Dead Redemption 2’: Nintendo Switch release odds “exceedingly poor”

Despite still being listed as a 2017 release, we know precious little about Red Dead Redemption 2. The follow-up to the classic 2010 wild west game from the creators of Grand Theft AutoВ is launching on PS4 and XboxВ One with some emphasis on multiplayer. Other than that, there isn’t much to go on.

That includes whether the game will eventually come to other consoles, like the NintendoВ Switch, for example.

Red Dead Redemption 2: Nintendo Switch release doesn’t look likely

Red Dead Redemption 2В was coincidentally announced on the same day as the Nintendo Switch back in October, but there has been no indication the game will ever come to Nintendo’s newest console. Speaking to GamingBolt, well-known games industry analyst Michael Pachter said the chances of the game coming to Switch are “exceedingly poor”:

“I can’t remember any game other than — there was aВ GTAВ made for the DS, which came out in 2009 — I’d be really surprised if they wasted their effort to port anything for Nintendo. I just think that Nintendo has wandered too far away from the mainstream for most of the publishers, so you’re just not getting mainstream games produced for Nintendo consoles — not ones made for other consoles, at any rate.”

Keep in mind Pachter, like any professional prediction maker, occasionallyВ gets things wrong. One man’s business-driven take is not the same as an official statement. Still, there’s little grounds to argue against what Pachter’s assertion.

He’s correct that Rockstar Games has avoided NintendoВ for a long time. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsВ for DS and Table TennisВ for the Wii are the most notable games Rockstar has published on NintendoВ consoles over the past decade. The company does not have particularly strong ties to Nintendo.

We also have no idea whether the Switch could even run Red Dead Redemption 2. Like the past two NintendoВ consoles, the Switch isВ presumed to be significantly less powerful than the PS4 and XboxВ One. The game appears to be taking full advantage of the capabilities of those two consoles.

Again, never say never. The game could come to Switch at some point in the future, even if it’s in a compromised state. Don’t bet on it happening in 2017, though.

‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Coming But Not For Nintendo Switch

Although it was speculated by various sources like Universityherald that the Red Dead Redemption 2 would be coming to Nintendo switch ever since the game was revealed but the chances are exceedingly poor for such thing to happen.

It is almost final that the Nintendo switch owners won’t get their hands on the Red Dead Redemption 2. This has been announced by Pachter a Wedbush security analyst. This game has been excluded from PC and any Nintendo console, Though Rockstar has announced this game as a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One title.

Nintendo Switch may not seem interesting for mainstream developers. This simply means that no mainstream title will make it to the console apart from Nintendo’s own.

On the other side of the story Take-To-Interactive, a parent company of Rockstar is reiterating its support for the new Nintendo console.

The company explained that they cannot announce any games at this point but it clearly emphasized partnership with Nintendo. The handheld home console can support a wide array of games apart from Rockstar and 2K.

Yes, there are some chances for Red Dead Redemption 2 to stand a chance in Nintendo Switch. The future owners of the console are still hopeful of this thing to happen. May be the collaboration between both these companies is fruitful. Nintendo is also expecting titles like Bioshock and grand Theft Auto.

Well, the Red Dead Redemption2 will be launched for PS4 and Xbox One in the fall of 2017. Rockstar has not announced any official date for the release and whether this game will ever be coming for a PC. This game will also provide a foundation for a brand new online gaming experience.

Little information is available about the actual game apart from the star seven characters which the game shall incorporate. It is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The sequel takes place in Old West, with cowboys, cattle, and towns filled with bars and bustling general stores.

Rockstar Games has confirmed, in an interview with VG24/7, that they have no current plans to release DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2′s single-player mode. Rockstar will instead be working on expanding the game’s multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online.

During an interview with Rockstar developers by VG24/7 , lead online production associate Katie Pica explained that Rockstar is focused on multiplayer at the moment.

“We’re 100% focused on online right now, because like I said, there’s just so much to do, and we’re just hoping to bring everything that a player can love about single-player into the online world, and fleshed out,” explained Pica.

Another Rockstar developer, Tarek Hamad, told VG24/7 that the team working on Red Dead Online wants the multiplayer game to “match the world” of the single-player campaign by adding new activities, events, and characters. The comments came as part of a longer interview with Rockstar developers about Red Dead Online.

For many fans, this will be disappointing news. Previous Rockstar games have received large single-player DLC expansions, including the extremely popular Undead Nightmare expansion for the original Red Dead Redemption and the Liberty City Episodes for GTA IV. But like GTA V, it seems Red Dead Redemption 2 will not be receiving large single-player expansions, at least for the foreseeable future. Instead, Rockstar will continue to build and expand both games’ multiplayer modes.
