News:: No, Call of Duty is not coming to the Switch this year

Once upon a time, Call of Duty games, or what I call "Call of Duty adjacent" projects used to hit Nintendo platforms. Whether they were full spinoffs on portable systems like the DS or slightly compromised ports like Black Ops II on the Wii U, they existed, but Activision kind of stopped trying after a while.

To wit, folks are wondering that since the Switch is up to task if we're getting one this year in WWII, but the definitive answer seems to be "no." That's an exact quote from Sledgehammer Games' Michael Condrey on a Reddit AMA, actually -- "no."

It seems like that was pretty clear when the platforms were originally announced a few weeks back, but Activision as usual has been pretty mum on whether or not it's going to arrive on unannounced platforms -- they always are, as people have been reaching out annually to see if Call of Duty is Wii U bound every year since 2013 and typically get a "no comment" response.

Now we know. Maybe we'll all be doing the same song and dance next year?
