It’s been four years since the Switch went on sale, and rumors are swirling that it’s expected to be an enhanced model. 2022It’s understandable that some developers are considering bringing the title to Nintendo’s hybrid consoles soon.

However, Saber Interactive’s Dmitry Grigorenco – lead designer Second World WarSabre plans to roll it out to Switch later this year, but at this stage we don’t see an urgent need for more powerful hardware and feel that there’s still a lot we can do with our existing Switch setup.

Talk to Nintendo Everything, Grigorenko was asked if there was anything he wanted to see on “Switch Pro”:

The obvious answer is that it’s good hardware overall with less build and patch size restrictions, but I don’t think the switch needs a more powerful version. Saber and many other talented studios have already proven that there is no such thing as an impossible transplant. Nintendo’s console was by no means hardware, it always improved the gameplay experience. I’m looking forward to what happens next.

Grigorenko was also asked if he felt he had reached the limit with his current switch system.

Each game released on Switch pushes the hardware more than before. World War II was a bigger challenge than previous projects. I think the next project will also stand out, but it all depends on the game. In the video game industry, things that look very complex to the outside world can actually be easily implemented during development. In most cases it is the opposite. The simplest thing can be a huge amount of time and effort to get started. At Sabre, we feel we’ve reached a great balance across all switch ports by providing great gameplay and maintaining the look of the game.

World War Z was originally launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2019 and will be available on Switch on November 21st of this year.

Thanks to the Great song for the hint!
