It seems like every month there is a new rumor about the Nintendo Switch 2. This time around it comes from court documents from the recent case between Microsoft and the FTC.
In a paragraph discussing why Microsoft doesn’t track Nintendo’s sales performance as opposed to PlayStation, the company mentions the successor of the Switch.
“Switch was released three years earlier, and Nintendo is expected to release the successor to the Switch as early as next year, whereas PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S are at a different stage of the console life cycle,” the court document says.
Microsoft’s belief that the next Nintendo Switch is coming as soon as next year goes along with recent reports of companies like Ubisoft talking about the next console. That said, Nintendo’s president Doug Bowser has gone on record saying that the company thinks the Switch has a “few years” left.
“As Mr. Furukawa (Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa) said recently, we’re entering uncharted territory with the platform,” Bowser said back in March. “It’s exciting to see that demand is still there. So nothing to announce on any future console or device, but we are still feeling very bullish about Nintendo Switch.”
