WWE 2K19 Skips Nintendo Switch Version This Year

Last year's WWE 2K18 for Switch had a number of issues, and this year's game is skipping the system altogether.


2K Sports brought WWE 2K18 to Nintendo Switch last year, but it suffered from a number of problems like framerate issues and more. This year's WWE 2K19 is skipping Switch altogether, a representative for 2K Sports recently confirmed to PowerUp Gaming.

"WWE 2K19 will not be available on Nintendo Switch," the spokesperson said. 2K is focused on making the best possible experience for WWE 2K fans and will continue evaluating all opportunities to deliver the franchise across additional platforms."

It's a bummer for wrestling fans hoping to play on the Nintendo console. Given that the PS4 and Xbox One have bigger installed bases, it makes sense that 2K would focus on those systems, but that doesn't make it any less easier to stomach for Nintendo fans.

Another sports game, Madden NFL 19, is skipping Nintendo Switch this year.

The Deluxe and Collector's Editions of WWE 2K19 will be available on October 5, while the Standard Edition of WWE 2K19 will be available on October 9. In other news, 2K has confirmed that Ronda Rousey will be available as a pre-order bonus.
