THQ Nordic has announced a release date – or rather release dates – for This is the Police on Switch.

Those looking to purchase the game as soon as possible will be able to do so on October 24. THQ Nordic intends to have the digital version ready on that date.

GameFly has posted the box for This Is the Police, which you can see above. The game doesn’t have a release date yet, but we found out a few hours ago that the launch isn’t too far off. THQ Nordic should have an announcement to make soon.


This is the Police isn’t too far away from reaching Switch. In a Reddit AMA conducted today, developer Maksim Burak said:

“We are aiming really hard to release the game in all major markets simultaneously. Right now we can’t give a specific date, but it should happen really soon as we are finishing up with some formalities.”

We’ve seen all sorts of retailer pages and other listings pointing to a Switch version of This Is the Police. Thanks to a listing on the eShop, it’s now official.

THQ Nordic will be bringing This Is the Police to Switch… at some point. A release date is not provided no the eShop page. Still, it’s nice to have an absolute confirmation that it’s happening.

Here’s a brief overview of This Is the Police:

This Is the Police is a strategy/adventure game set in a city spiraling the drain. Taking the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd, you’ll dive into a deep story of crime and intrigue. Will Jack reach his retirement with a nice stack of bills, or will he end up broken… or worse?

Listings for This is the Police have been appearing on European retailer websites as of late. Further adding to the speculation is a new page on Koch Media’s website.

Koch handles the distribution of THQ Nordic games in a few European countries. Given that, you would think they would know about upcoming releases. That’s why it’s interesting how Koch also says that This is the Police is bound for Switch. It’s listed for a release on December 29, though that’s certainly a random, tentative date.

If we hear anything else about This is the Police coming to Switch, we’ll let you know.


THQ Nordic is publishing Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Sine Mora EX on Switch. Now the company may have another title planned for the platform as well.

This Is the Police is being listed by two retailers in Germany. GameStop and Saturn both have listings up for the adventure strategy title.

THQ Nordic hasn’t officially announced This Is the Police for Switch, but that could change in the near future. We’ve included a video and information about the game below.
