Developer: A Plague Tale: Innocence not coming to Switch because of the system’s lack of power

Asobo Studio’s A Plague Tale: Innocence will be coming to other home consoles and PC – but not to the Switch. Speaking to GamingBolt, Asobo Studio’s Chief Creative Officer David Dedeine says that this is due to the system’s lack of power:
“No. I will not lie by just saying…power. It’s really the power of the device. In this case it was the amount of rats we need to display. We already know that there’s too many rats, too many animations, too many AI at the same time. And if we want to give justice to – it’s like there is a large bridge between [it and ] Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. And the Switch, it was too hard to make the same game in such a different context.
We’ve done the math, and had all sorts of discussions with Focus Home Interactive (the publisher). So maybe will try, but right now the discussion we’ve had with the publisher was to not make Switch a priority.”
