Microsoft has promised to bring Call of Duty games to Nintendo platforms over the next 10 years.
Many are speculating that the Switch will gets its exclusive Call of Duty games instead of ports of existing titles.
Currently there are no announced games by Activision so a release date is unavailable.

With Microsoft confirming that Nintendo Switch will get its own iteration of Call of Duty, many fans of the franchise are waiting for official details regarding a release date. As it stands, we are expected to get Call of Duty games over the next ten years but there is no known release date. It may take at least a couple of years until we start seeing Microsoft deliver on its promise.

Call of Duty Nintendo Switch Release Date

Currently, there is no known release date for Call of Duty on the Nintendo Switch. As it stands, Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision-Blizzard King has caught the attention of multiple business regulatory bodies across the world and it may take a while until the deal is completed. 

Switch games have historically received a number of bad ports. Titles like Apex Legends and Overwatch 2 are not able to run with decent performance. Players will be looking forward to either a high-quality port or a Switch-optimized version of the game that also has some form of cross-progression with mainline Call of Duty games.

Call of Duty has already tried this in the past with Call of Duty 3, Modern Warfare, World at War, Black Ops, and Modern Warfare 3 on the Nintendo Wii and Wii U. While the games were popular they could not come close to competing with the PlayStation and Xbox counterparts.

Activision changed its strategy and started developing games exclusive to Nintendo’s platforms instead of porting the flagship titles and it was a great idea as the performance was a whole lot better. But things have changed since then and the Nintendo Switch is one of the most capable handheld consoles ever made, and it falls short only against Linux-based handhelds like the Steam Deck.
