Codemasters Designer: Don’t Rule out Dirt 4 for Nintendo Switch

0 382

Do you remember the announcement of Dirt 4 yesterday? Well, if you could check it, you will know that the racing game is planned for PS4, Xbox One and PC. What about the Nintendo Switch? One of the game’s leading designers has something to tell us.

In a small talk, Darren Hayward, Senior Game Designer, had the opportunity to comment on the following:

“Personally, I’ve got my Switch pre-ordered and I’m getting it day one. Obviously at launch [DiRT 4] is not coming to Switch. We’d already picked our platforms. We’ve nothing to announce right now, but, I wouldn’t rule it out.”

“There are signs of more traditional games coming out for Switch with full controller support like Skyrim, but would Dirt Rally or Dirt 4 work on a split Switch controller? I think we’d have to do quite a lot in terms of extra tweaks.”

“When you take it away and you’ve got it in tablet mode with the Joy-Cons it’s great, but those split controllers, that’s custom game design right there specifically for that platform.

“There are not many inputs, so you’d have to have super simplified controls and because of that, it may not be the ideal scenario for DiRT 4.

“That said, I could definitely see Nintendo Switch having some compelling racing experiences.”

Besides Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, what other car franchises game would you like to see on the Nintendo Switch? Do tell us in the comment section below.
