With Diablo 3 coming to the Nintendo Switch, it's easy to wonder what other Blizzard games could make it over to Nintendo's hybrid console. A frontrunner for Blizzard games wanted on the Switch is Overwatch, and while there aren't any announcements to make Blizzard at the very least think that Overwatch can run on the Switch.
Speaking with GameSpot, Diablo 3 Switch senior producer Pete Stilwell said that, "Anything is within the realm of possibility," when it comes to future Blizzard games on the Switch. "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."
But there's a difference between saying anything is possible versus whether it's technologically possible to get other Blizzard games on the Switch. But having worked on the Diablo 3 port for the Switch, Stilwell says getting Overwatch to run on the Switch is "feasible."
In fact, Stilwell, who says that working on Diablo 3 for the Switch helped give Blizzard a better understanding of the console, did potentially rule out StarCraft 2 for a Switch port. Referencing the Nintendo 64 version of StarCraft from 18 years ago Stilwell says that StarCraft 2 would require some major reworks to work on the Switch.
"StarCraft 2 is next level requirements from how much dexterity you need with a mouse and keyboard, so I think would have been a very difficult port. It would have [to] change the core gameplay."
Diablo 3: Eternal Collection doesn't have a release date on the Switch just yet. We know that it's coming sometime this year and will come with added content that lets you dress your character up like Ganon from The Legend of Zelda. Online co-op for Diablo 3 will also require a subscription to Nintendo Switch's online service, but will also come with cloud saves for you to upload your character data.
