We’re sorry, fans of The Elder Scrolls Online who would like to play the game on the Nintendo Switch. As with many other games, the title is not coming to the Switch, and according to creative director Matt Firor it’s a simple matter of fitting seven pounds of flour in a five-pound bag. The game is just too large to fit onto the Switch, no matter how you slice it.
You can still play Skyrim
on your Switch, of course, as that game has now been ported to every platform aside from the Colecovision. (That port will happen next year.) Firor mentioned that the team had actually been interested in bringing TESO
to the console, but the size limitation of 75 gigs was just too big for the portable hybrid console. A loss for fans of the platform, but considering the overall paucity of MMO offerings on the console, perhaps it’s not surprising
