WWE 2K19 will not be released for Nintendo Switch following a backlash to last year's instalment, publisher 2K Games has officially confirmed. That was evidenced once again this weekend when developer Digital Extremes revealed at the TennoCon fan expo that popular co-op shooter Warframe is coming to Switch.
There is now no release date for Warframe on the Nintendo Switch. The game features over 35 distinct Warframes armor sets, thousands of customization options, hundreds of unique weapons. The game also gives players the ability to join clans, tame animals, upgrade armour and explore a huge open world - what's not to like?
Previously available on Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, the game is now being ported to Nintendo's Switch handheld console - and Digital Extremes has picked Panic Button to handle the port, following the success of the company's ports of Rocket League, Doom, and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus to the platform. As ambitious of a port as it may seem, it's no real surprise that Digital Extremes went to Panic Button for help with the Switch version of Warframe.
Panic Button's involvement indicates that Warframe players can expect a quality port from the Switch version, and one that's as close as possible to the original. "On Switch we've sold many times what we've sold on Steam-somewhere between five and 10 times", Steamworld Dig 2 developer Brjann Sigurgeirsson told PC Gamer of the game's concurrent release on both platforms previous year.
