As rosy as the current relations between Ubisoft and Nintendo are, one recurring question is if the Switch will ever receive games like Assassin’s Creed and Rainbow Six. During a chat with Metro GameCentral, Rainbow Six Siege brand director Alexandre Remy was asked if the team-based first-person shooter would ever come to the Nintendo Switch. This was his reply:
[It’s] not possible with the technical constraint and especially the frame rate of the game; 60 frames per second plus destruction is a bit CPU heavy and Switch is not yet the Nintendo console where it’ll be.
This follows on from last week when the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game director Scott Phillips revealed he would port the game to the Switch if he had the programming skills to do so.
