RUMOR - Could Beenox be working on Call of Duty: WWII for Switch?


Beenox, a company behind multiple titles on Nintendo platforms, is currently posting about Call of Duty on their Twitter account. The thing is, the company doesn't seem to be tied to Call of Duty: WWII, the upcoming Call of Duty game for Xbox One/PS4/PC. Beenox's most recent work includes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and the last-gen ports of Call of Duty: Black Ops III. If Beenox is involved in the latest Call of Duty title, it would certainly seem like a Switch outing makes the most sense.

So, according to you, the Switch is the Wii3? :D

What happened back does not HAVE to happen now too. Not saying it wont either. They can keep the gore. I mean why not? The Switc has a different marketing than Wii/U after all. But for DLC? Get them micro SD cards ready hehe.

I know where you are coming from, but I'll give them a chance (if this has anything in reality at all). I have a feeling some things are changing with Switch, just not as much as some hope/want.

Local multiplayer on a FPS game... I did it a LONG time ago...

They better implement it. That and HD rumble!

Playing a full Call of Duty on-the-go would actually be pretty cool, as there's a dire need for more handheld first person shooters. The last first person shooter for a handheld that I really enjoyed was Metroid Prime Hunters, and that's over 11 (!) years old!

I have no hope a Switch port with complete feature parity with X-Box One / PS 4 happening. Sure the game probably will get ported, but it will be massively inferior to PS 4 / One.

Treyarch had a Nintendo team that handled Blops II and Ghosts for Wii U, but that team was disbanded. Blops II and Ghosts Wii U didn't get much support (only one DLC map for each game)or advertising either.

WWII on Switch will have downgraded graphics, yes, but they could strip the gore (Treyarch's World at War had gore stripped out on Wii), probably won't have any DLC outside maybe one free DLC map, and they'll barely support it for 3-6 months before abandoning it (they wont' advertise it either).

The graphics are going to be downgraded. It's a Nintendo system and less powerful than the other systems. Nintendo will have a lesser version.

I know the gdx will be downgradez. Was not my point. And yes, it's the third Nintendo console in a row that's weaker than the others.

I just commented on this story on Twitter, saying how I hope that the team at Treyarch does the porting for the Switch.

Call of Duty: World at War on the Wii had a gore filter. You could filter it on/off as needed, but I'm pretty sure it was the same game single-player wise as the PS3/360 versions, minus HD graphics.

Graphically, the game would be around Wii U levels, so Black Ops II. Other than being graphically downgraded versus the PS4/One versions, I don't know why other features wouldn't be included, unless Nintendo still doesn't have their online Switch act together by then.

If Nintendo gets this right, it could be awesome for the Switch. The FPS genre is one of my favorite/most played, and the Call of Duty games have dominated a lot of my play-time on Nintendo consoles since the Wii, starting with World at War.

I played Black Ops II on the Wii U, and I probably played the majority of my time on just the Wii U GamePad screen. My wife could use the TV for shows, I would be playing online matches in Black Ops II.

If it comes out I'll add you ;)

The Switch is actually a competent​ game console with surging popularity. Ports will no longer be a thing publishers begrudgingly do. They'll put a good, or maybe even their best foot forward to make dat monehz

Sounds good. Last COD game I played was Black Ops 3 and it was...okay but way different than the first black ops which was my favorite (played it on Wii and enjoyed the hell out of the pointer controls). Not sure if I'll buy it because I'm going all digital and sure as hell won't have enough space to download it and not sure with COD lately.

Would consider buying if gyro aim was used. This is something I would never purchase on PS4 just because the sheer quality and quantity of other games.

See, this is another reason why I'm bummed the Wii U is gone. If it had been on the Wii U rather than the Switch, we could've added a 'U' on the end of the title like a few other Wii U versions got and get Call of Duty: WWII U.

... Anyone? No?
