Ubitus says they're working with "numerous industry-leading game developers" to bring more games to Switch

More Cloud titles on the way

Ubitus is the team behind the Cloud tech that brought Control to Switch earlier this week. We also know that Hitman is on the way to Switch via Cloud tech as well. This has fans wondering if even more titles were on the way via Cloud release, and it seems that's the case.

Ubitus put out a press release for their work on Control, and it included the following blurb about their future support.

In addition to 505 Games, Ubitus is currently working with numerous industry-leading game developers, aiming to bring their best games to the Nintendo Switch™ shortly.

We also saw some evidence that Resident Evil 3 was going to hit Switch in Cloud form, and it seemed Ubitus was involved. While that's still not confirmed, this comment from Ubitus certainly makes it seem likely.

If this approach gains popularity, it could mean we would never see ports like the witcher 3 or doom on a nintendo console in the future. Paying to access a game that runs remotely takes away any form of ownership from the equation hurting the player in the long run.You just need to think a little to figure it out. But thinking in a critical way is getting less and less popular these days...

Final Fantasy VII Remake: Cloud Edition makes so much sense it will never happen

More options to play more games on more platforms.

But some snowflakes take it as personal offence such things exist.

The thing is, even now Doom Eternal seems to be almost guaranteed to skip 2020 even with being announced at the same time as the other versions and being hanlded by port wizards Panic Button. And with a new generation of hardware just around the corner, the gap is just getting wider. Ports like the Witcher3 will disappear, either if cloud approach gains popularity or not.

Completely agreed. To support this you risk damaging actual support, and not just on Switch.

Stop buying rental games people FFS, There's already a war on ownership in the gaming industry, and Cloud gaming is exactly what plenty of AAA devs would want.

As someone who recently cracked denuvo 7 said: "If you don't own it, you're better off without it."

I agree, but I’m not going to get my knickers in a twist because a handful of games have cloud versions. They exist, big deal, don’t support them and move on. Some people here have reacted like this is definite confirmation that the next Nintendo console will be 100% cloud streaming.

I'm not interested in cloud gaming. I don't like the idea of being at the mercy of my internet connection for single player games. With that being said, it does give more people the opportunity to play these games. I think there is room in the market for cloud gaming. I just don't want it to replace what we have now.
