WWE 2K18 Switch dev promises patches

Posted on December 6, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

WWE 2K18 has landed on Switch, but it will continue to receive attention. Blind Squirrel, who worked on the game for Nintendo’s console, says that updates are on the way.

The studio tweeted a short while ago:

WWE 2K18 isn’t in the best shape on Switch at the moment. Players have reported all sorts of technical issues, such as a slow frame rate in handheld mode. Hopefully all of the kinks will be worked out in the weeks ahead.

    I hope so,in gameplay videos I saw and it is unacceptable such a big studio to release a game in that form.

      Is AAA 3rd party support is good lol

      • Stuart

        Iwant GOOD support,not just releasing a broken mess and calling a day.

    See folks, this why wii u did not get AAA 3rd party support. Companies like EA, Ubisoft, Activion, and etc have to find developers to port games to Nintendo console. Wii u and switch easily handle wwe 2k18. If the original wii have wwe svr 2017 – wwe 13 under thq and the same game as the HD consoles (ps3 and xbox 360) how can the wwe 2k18 have problems with the switch version? Simple Blind Squirrel Games sucks.

      Why are you bringing up a Wii port in regards to porting between the switch and other current gen platforms? The development environment back then was drastically different

      • moviereviewrsports

        The reason why I am bring up the wii port because the wii was not powerful than xbox 360 and ps3. Many 3rd party games port the games on the wii have no issues.

        “The development environment back then was drastically different” No it is not.

          There’s more to porting than power and even beyond that bugs that showed up in wii games were never patched because of the system’s internal memory. Modern warfare was a good example, it had issues issues frame rate and crashing but it could never be fixed

          • moviereviewrsports

            “http://www.coffeewithgames.com/2011/11/modern-warfare-3-wii-patched-issues.html” Modern warfare 3 at launch was horrible. Frame rate problems and etc. Guess what THEY PATCH THE GAME

          • theFooFighter

            Yeah tell that to mw1.

          • moviereviewrsports

            modern warfare reflex edition was straight up port. Other COD games on the wii were not ports. They built the game same time PS3 and Xbox 360 edition. That’s why games came out the same time

          • theFooFighter

            Wtf are you talking about? All of the Wii cod’s were ports.

    I trust them.

    NBA 2K18 was the exact same way, and within a month it was purring like a kitten. Every single last major issue has been addressed, they even added in the ability to invite friends online, the audio issues during cut scenes were patched out… the game plays like a dream.

    So we already knew that was going to be the case here. If there’s anyone who has earned my trust it’s TakeTwo. They have proven that they will support their games and if it’s not running up to scratch they will absolutely get it fixed and running properly. Obviously it would be best if there were no issues in the first place and I’m not arguing that. But given that is the state of the industry, I’m not going to complain provided they do get it fixed within the next 30 days. Especially given that are selling the game for $39.99.

    Delay your damn game if it’s this damn broken.

  • Wanderlei

    They put out incomplete product to get christmas sales.

  • Melatelo

    Or here’s a wild thought…release a finished product next time

  • Freddones

    Haste to release the game before xmas ruined the port. Now you need day 1 patches to fix issues known before release. That ruins the value of physical media games, since the cartridge has an awful version and demands updades.

  • Padre

    Why they dont have ANY QC at all? Because they dont care. They just want your money.

  • Sinton

    That’s what 2K Games and their developers do best: release patches. How they get away with releasing half finished games for more than a decade, I’ll never understand…

  • Cesar Miyamoto

    Literally i cancelled my preorder of the game after watching Spawnwave video , i was on the fence because of the lack of info , but after watching him play the 6 vs 6 match and the atrocious frame rate of that match i was done.
