MotoGP 17 won’t come to Nintendo Switch; future titles might arrive until next year

MotoGP 17 is now available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but what are the chances of seeing the game on Nintendo Switch? At the moment there is no confirmation of its arrival on the new console of Nintendo, as revealed by the Lead Programmer Michele Caletti during a recent interview with Red Bull Games.


Among the games that will not appear this year on Nintendo Switch is also MotoGP 17, released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Milestone, the software house of the title, has answered some questions about the game, through its lead programmer Michele Caletti.

When the lead programmer Michele Caletti was asked whether Nintendo Switch version of MotoGP 17 was ever considered, he replied the following: “MotoGP 17 is the last title made with our in-house engine. Future titles might also be available on Switch, thanks to the support of Unreal Engine, so it’s something possible from the next year on.”

“The development kits for Switch have been available during the late development phase of MotoGP, thus all the assets and game modes have been created without Switch in mind. Porting it now would end up with something that would not satisfy us and our users. We prefer to concentrate our efforts on building a great Switch version for the next chapter of the series.”

MotoGP 17 is already available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC (via Steam).
