Several previous reports have suggested that work on a Switch 2 (or whatever the hardware name) is in the works, and more clues seem to be emerging as well thanks to new job applications from Nintendo.
According to a post on RedditJob applications for the position of R&D Engineer in Game Technologies refer to technologies related to game development for current and next-generation Nintendo platforms. Interestingly, cross-generation development has also been mentioned, which means that the new platform may support Switch games directly.
It appears Nintendo Switch Online will also make its way to the new device, as the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said in its statement about Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard, per page that Nintendo Switch Online was not considered among competing subscription services. Since it is only available on 2 devices.
With Nintendo Switch Online having surpassed 36 million subscribers as of November, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Nintendo continue to invest in the service in its unannounced future hardware as recent reports indicated.
