Lawbreakers not coming to Switch due to lack of buttons says developer
When asked if their new online shooter Lawbreakers could come to the Nintendo Switch, Cliffy B’s new studio said recently that porting the game is not a problem but lack of buttons on the controller is.
Dan Nanni from Boss Key Productions had this puzzling statement to say about it:
There’s a possibility for everything and anything in this world. I think the hardest part with the Switch is the controls. Look at the game that we have right now, and we just literally by the skin of our teeth put the entire game and the control pad that the PlayStation has. That means that we could probably make it work for the Xbox One in someway, right? But if you’re looking at the Switch the base controller that’s on the unit, it doesn’t have as many buttons.
This is strange since the Switch has as many buttons as the Dual Shock 4. Boss Key should just say they are not interested even if they don’t have a great excuse.
As is, I never expected the game on Switch but now I believe Dan from Boss Key can’t count.
