Capcom Not Bringing Resident Evil To Nintendo Switch

Following on the heels of developers who have claimed that their biggest games and franchises (e.g., Borderlands 3 and Mass Effect: Andromeda) will not be coming to the Switch, Capcom says they have no Resident Evil games planned for the system. Nobody who knows the company well could possibly be taking their comments seriously, howeverآ—they are probably readying another port of Resident Evil 4 as I type this. I would imagine that any hype for the new Nintendo system would be for first-party efforts, anyway.

Capcom has said it is potentially interested in making games for the Nintendo Switch, but it doesn't look like the Resident Evil series is among them, at least not yet. Producer Masachika Kawata told Express Online about the Switch, "I think it's a very unique piece of hardware." However, Capcom isn't bringing Resident Evil to Switch now or anytime soon. "I'm looking forward to the possibilities of the system itself, but we have no plans at the moment regarding Resident Evil on Switch," Kawata said (via NeoGAF). Capcom is among the dozens of development partners for the Switch, so it's possible some Capcom games will come to the console.
