More and more details about the next game in the series that 'CoD' fans have been restlessly waiting to figure out for 'Call of Duty: WWII' are finally springing up from all corners. Interestingly, these shreds of information come from the development team and are not being leaked.

Much to the chagrin of Nintendo fans, the upcoming first-person shooter video game is not being officially developed for the Big N's latest console, Switch, if recently surfaced reports are anything to go by.

It can be recalled that in a like manner when 343 Industries announced 'Halo 6' will not be making an appearance at E3, avid gamers were not exactly convinced until they realized the game developer was actually telling the truth. Basically, 'Halo' fans were incredulous because they have been waiting with bated breath for the game's arrival on the Switch.

During their recently held Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), the developers asked them if 'Call of Duty: WW2' is slated to arrive for Switch, which they responded with a clear "No" without giving any sort of clarification, reasoning or justification. No prizes for guessing, that's likely to provoke a lot of Nintendo fans. Apparently, the game is suspected to be plagued with a lot of problems in terms of content as well as capacity. It is imperative for the game developer to address these issues before it sees the Switch.

Sledgehammer Games' plan of action

While it's no secret that 'Call of Duty: WW2' is not getting a release on #Nintendo Switch, this is bound make the console owners angry, it's hardly surprising to find out that Sledgehammer Games will have nothing to do with the making of a port for the Switch, either.

It can be recalled that numerous installments in the 'Call of Duty' series did not launch versions for Nintendo's hardware. The last major release in the franchise that came to a Nintendo console was 'Call of Duty: Ghosts.'

Aside from 'CoD: WW2,' there’s a slew of other current generation titles that have refrained from releasing versions for the Nintendo Switch. For instance, 'Tekken 7' and 'The Witness' did not put out ports for the system.

Moreover, Monolith and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment's upcoming 'Lord 0f the Rings' adventure game and 'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' won't be getting versions for the Switch either.

'Call of Duty: WW2' not releasing for the Switch is likely to have a negative impact on sales of the title, as the game is expected to come out for multiple platforms including Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

With the latest installment in the 'Call of Duty' series, Activision and Sledgehammer Games have answered the prayers of the franchise’s huge fan base that has unceasingly been requesting the developers to retrace steps to the series' origin with a WWII-inspired shooter.

In other words, 'Call of Duty: WW2' is likely to sell like hot cakes, particularly with 'Call of Duty' being a brand name that more often than not grabs the number one spot on end-of-the-year sales charts.'Call of Duty: WW2' is scheduled to release on November 3, 2017, for varied platforms including Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
