Some Developers Are Working on Nintendo Switch 2 Games, as Per GDC Survey

Leaks have insisted for a while now that Nintendo’s next-gen console is set to launch in the second half of 2024, and with the Switch not far away from entering its eighth year, that doesn’t seem hard to believe in the slightest. Of course, if the Switch’s successor is indeed just months away from launching, you’d assume that at least some developers in the industry will have access to development kits so they can work on games for the console- and sure enough, as per a GDC survey, that does seem to be the case.

As reported by VGC, nearly 3,000 developers from across the industry were questioned about their work in GDC’s State of the Game Industry survey for 2024, and in response to a question about which platform developers were developing their current project for, 8% said they were currently developing for the Nintendo Switch 2 (or whatever it ends up being called).

Of course, given that the console has yet to be officially announced (or even acknowledged), it’s likely that developers working with the hardware will be under NDAs, as a result of which many wouldn’t have mentioned it.

Beyond that, when asked about which console they currently found the most interesting, 32% developers answered with the Switch’s successor, behind PC (62%) and PS5 (41%).

Last year, it was reported that the Switch 2 had been shown off to select developers in behind-closed-doors demonstrations at Gamescom.
