Flatout 4 has a decent shot of landing on Switch. While speaking with One Angry Gamer, Susan Cummings from publisher Strategy First said that “It’s certainly possible.”

Flatout 4’s chances on Switch could come down to the system’s sales and interest from the community. On the former point at least, the platform seems to be performing well on the market so far.
