After the recent news confirming Diablo 3 being ported over to the Nintendo Switch, Blizzards Senior Producer, Pete Stilwell was asked if it was possible that Overwatch could see the same treatment. Hold onto your hat because Overwatch coming to the Nintendo Switch is completely possible.

Blizzard and Nintendo just confirmed that Diablo 3 would be making its way to the handheld console this fall, and while that is amazing news GameSpot has sat down with Senior Producer at Blizzard Entertainment, Pete Stilwell. Stilwell was asked a series of questions regarding the now confirmed port of Diablo 3, the producer said that now that the developers have worked very closely with the Nintendo Switchs' technology, the developers have now achieved a much better grasp on how everything works, thus opening up more possible avenues for collaboration.

With the developers now new found knowledge of how the system works, GameSpot directly asked Stilwell if he could see Overwatch being ported over to the Switch. Stilwell replied with: "Anything is within the realm of possibility. Our team was given the task to work on this. If [Overwatch developer] Team 4 picks up that endeavor, that's on them. As of right now Diablo is our only focus on Switch." Stilwell was further asked if the Switch had the technological capabilities to run Overwatch, the Senior Producer replied with "Yes, it is feasible." Sure, this isn't really much to go off to say that Overwatch is 100% coming to the Switch, but it does confirm that it is entirely possible. Could we see Blizzard make an Overwatch port sometime soon? Perhaps, my personal guess would that the developers will wait until Diablo 3 is successfully brought over before tackling another massive project.
