SHOCKING: UK regulator challenges Nintendo Switch’s capability to run Call of Duty smoothly

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in the UK has argued that the Nintendo Switch is not “technically capable” of running Call of Duty well. On April 26, the CMA published its final report after blocking Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard, which included a deal to put Call of Duty on Nintendo consoles for 10 years. The CMA reiterated concerns about the functionality of the FPS game on the Switch, stating there was no evidence to suggest that Nintendo consoles would be able to run a version of Call of Duty with quality gameplay and content similar to those on Xbox and PlayStation. This comes after the CMA expressed doubts last month that Call of Duty could run on Switch without financial investment or compromises to graphical quality or the use of cloud-gaming solutions. Microsoft has said that Call of Duty would run “like you would expect” on Switch, but with the struggles of other AAA ports on the console, this is not reassuring.
