Virtuous says they're ready to bring PS5/XSX games to Switch

Onto the next generation we go

Virtuous has brought a number of PS4/XB1 ports over to the Switch, and they've show quite a knack for it. It seems that Virtuos is ready for a bigger challenge though, as they want to take on ports from the next generation.

In an interview with Maxi-Geek, Virtuos' Elijah Freeman said their team is ready to tackle ports from PS5 and Xbox Series X to the Switch. No specific games are mentioned, but whatever projects pop up, Virtuous will be ready.

“We believe that 2020 will be the year of game-centric development, where players will expect as standard a consistency of experience with their favorite games. With the launch of the new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 this year, developers need to strategize and plan for the game experience to be consistent across all platforms. At Virtuos we are charged up and full of talent that is ready to help bring these new games to the Nintendo Switch.”

That’s awesome! Or do they have inside information about ”Switch Pro”?

Yeah, I'm not really looking forward to how Series X to Switch ports are gonna look. 🤢 Unless it's a really simplistic looking game, I can't imagine the transition between the two consoles being worthwhile. Here's to hoping Nintendo releases a new Switch next year with at least the power of the original Xbox One, but preferably the PS4. Then it'd have a fighting chance with Series X and PS5 ports, since even Microsoft is planning on supporting the One for the next couple of years with new games.

Unless they do have inside info about a Switch Pro (or are assuming like most) they may just be planning on making the games from the ground up alongside the PS5/XBSX versions, but itll probably wind up how Wii U was (if rumors arent true) with companies optimistic about their games' sales and when the PS/XB versions are selling heaps more and Switch versions are slowing down compared to now these companies will stop seeing the value of trying.

Happy to try whatever they come up with. Considering there's no plans for a portable system from Microsoft or Sony the only way to play the "next gen" level games on the go will be Switch.
