Why didn’t Monster Hunter: World get ported to Switch? Does Capcom have something against the console?
Capcom has been very reserved in regards to bringing their games to the Nintendo Switch. Despite the systems massive sales numbers and gaming hits, Capcom has only brought a handful of titles to it. This has made fans very mad. Especially in regards to the Monster Hunter franchise. As the PS4 and Xbox One is getting a new title in the series called Monster Hunter: World, and the Switch isn’t. But, in an interview with IGN, some of the team revealed why this didn’t happen.
“We don’t have any plans for the Switch at the moment. Part of the reason is that the title has been in development for almost 4 years. At the time we had to commit to our hardware choices, we decided on using the most powerful current generation consoles available at the time, which was PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So [the decision was made] before the Switch was even announced or on sale.”
