Mention of a Nintendo Switch multiplayer server for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has been spotted on an official Activision website, fueling speculation that the FPS will make its way to Nintendo’s handheld console.
Activision Online services Website, a support page listing the current server status of many of the publisher’s multiplayer games, was spotted briefly listing the connection status of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for the Nintendo Switch (thanks, NintendoLife).
Twitter user WarzoneQG shared a screenshot of the entry, as did another Reddit user. Both screenshots show the game’s Nintendo Switch servers listed as “online” alongside the online status of the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game. The Nintendo Switch listing has since been removed from the site.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 wasn’t released for the Nintendo Switch when it released in 2018, and none of the main entries in the series have made it to the handheld console.
However, Microsoft, which announced its proposed acquisition of Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard earlier this year, has previously announced plans to bring the series to Nintendo’s flagship console.
“We promised Sony that we will do the same [Call of Duty and other popular Activision Blizzard titles] will be available on PlayStation beyond the existing agreement and in the future, so Sony fans can continue to enjoy the games they love,” Smith said last month.
“We are also interested in taking similar steps to support Nintendo’s successful platform. We believe this is the right thing for the industry, for gamers and for our business.”
In a later interview with CNBCSmith reiterated that commitment: “We want to bring [Call of Duty] to Nintendo devices. We want to bring Activision Blizzard’s other popular titles and make sure they continue to be available on PlayStation, that they become available on Nintendo.”
Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard is far from complete. The deal is expected to close in June 2023, and neither publisher has made an official announcement about their Call of Duty plans. This is the first indication that Activision is preparing to port the series to Nintendo Switch.
