Payday 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch this year

More On: Payday 2

In one of the biggest surprises of yesterday's Nintendo Direct, Starbreeze announced they will be porting Payday 2 to Nintendo Switch. The presentation promised "a huge amount" of Payday content coming to Switch, so maybe the game's extensive--and somewhat controversial--collection of DLC will be making the transition.

I have mixed feelings about this port. I think it's great that Switch is getting strong third party support with such a well-known franchise. That said, it also reminds me of the Wii U launch window, where several games that were already years old were ported to the new system to shore up a thin release lineup. Only time will tell if Switch can sustain this third party support, or if it will be largely abandoned after its first year like Wii U.
