A Way Out dev hasn’t explored Switch yet – “not saying it will never happen”
Hazelight Studios’ Lucas de Vries weighed in yesterday as to why A Way Out isn’t on Switch. Director Josef Fares has now commented as well.
Like de Vries, Fares pointed out that the game requires camera controls, which can’t really be done if you want to play on a single Joy-Con. He also brought up that the team hasn’t really looked into Switch yet, and he’s “not saying it will never happen.”
Fares’ full words:
“First of all, this is a third person game, which means that you need to control the camera… and on the Switch, if you want to play it on the Joycons, you can’t have the camera controls, because the Switch only has one stick on each controller. But there’s… we haven’t really explored the Switch, so I’m not saying it’s not going to happen. But it’s just that we are a small team and we’re doing everything in-house, which makes it very hard for us to have the time… but I’m not saying it will never happen.”
GamingBolt also asked if A Way Out could come to Switch after the initial launch. In response, Fares said it could happen if they have the time, but the team isn’t committing to that right now.
