Well... at least we won't get to hear how they should have put the game on the Switch anymore. The game is clearly a sucess on the PS4. :p

Also, based on how it runs, theres little hope for a Switch port.

For a Switch port to happen, it will either be a streaming game or it will have to go through some graphics tone down.

I'll be beting on the graphics.

In order to brace yourselves for that you have to remember ports like Resident Evil 4 on ps2 or Dead Rising on wii.
