Call of Duty: WW2 may be headed to the Nintendo Switch, if a developer’s social media post is to be believed. The game’s publisher Activision was previously confirmed as one of the third-party companies that would be supporting the console.
Just a few days ago, Canadian developer Beenox posted a tweet showing some of its team members alongside members of the Canadian army. Posted in French, the English translation reads “To create games always more realistic, we have had the pleasure of receiving two representatives of the Canadian Army for us to talk about their experience and their job!” Some fans have taken this to mean that Beenox is working on a Nintendo Switch port of Call of Duty: WW2 and that the studio is using what it has learned from the Canadian Army to help development.
The speculation isn’t totally left-field, as Beenox was the developer behind the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The developer also helped on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, which proves that Activision trusts the company to handle development of the massively popular franchise. As far as experience with Nintendo platforms is concerned, Beenox previously worked on Nintendo Wii and Wii U versions of Skylanders: SuperChargers and both of The Amazing Spider-Man games.

On top of this, some have also noted that the Call of Duty: WW2 announcement trailer mentions the “platform availability” of the game may change. The game has only been confirmed for PC, PS4, and Xbox One so far, but some have speculated that a Switch port announcement was looming, or at least considered.
If Call of Duty: WW2 is coming to the new Nintendo console then it’s unclear when this would be announced. The Nintendo E3 2017 stream would seem like an obvious place to announce the game for Switch, but Call of Duty: WW2 is set to have PlayStation exclusive DLC, which is typically discussed during the Sony press conference. It’s unclear whether there is a real clash there and that the game is forbidden from showing up at two platform holder events, but either way fans of the game should turn their attention to the annual industry event.
Call of Duty: WW2 is slated to release on November 3, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
