“We have no plans for Save the World on Switch.”

Fortnite: Save the World is a co-op sandbox survival title currently in paid early access on console and PC. At least for now, it won’t be on Switch.


After several leaks, Fortnite was largely expected to play a role in Nintendo’s E3 presentation today. That did indeed happen, and the game is launching today.

LeakyPandy claims that the PvP Battle Royale game and the PvE Save the World mode will be coming to Switch, with an announcement at E3. Further stated is that cross-play will be supported and Nintendo exclusive content is planned.

Fortnite may have a chance of landing on Switch. At the very least, Epic Games worldwide creative director Donald Mustard is interested in the idea.

When a fan asked if he has any interest in making Fortnite for Switch, Mustard responded with the following:
