Daybreak is porting DC Universe Online to the Nintendo Switch


This is an unusual place to be getting MMORPG news, but it looks to be legit: Comics website CBR is reporting that DC Universe Online is destined for the Nintendo Switch this summer. As MMO players already know, the 2011 MMO is already playable on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and is one of the few true MMORPG success stories on console.

According to the exclusive report, Daybreak has worked out “small element changes for the move to the system.” Crossplay is off the table, but it will indeed remain free-to-play on the new console.

“It’s very important to me that all of our communities stay the same and up to speed,” Executive Producer Leah Bowers told CBR. “I didn’t want the Switch to be in a book all to itself; I wanted the other communities to benefit from the improvements that we were making and vice versa.”

Daybreak’s now made its own official announcement! The FAQ confirms no crossplay; Switch players will be on a brand-new server using separate Nintendo Accounts.
