Virtuous says they're ready to bring PS5/XSX games to Switch

Onto the next generation we go

Virtuous has brought a number of PS4/XB1 ports over to the Switch, and they've show quite a knack for it. It seems that Virtuos is ready for a bigger challenge though, as they want to take on ports from the next generation.

In an interview with Maxi-Geek, Virtuos' Elijah Freeman said their team is ready to tackle ports from PS5 and Xbox Series X to the Switch. No specific games are mentioned, but whatever projects pop up, Virtuous will be ready.

“We believe that 2020 will be the year of game-centric development, where players will expect as standard a consistency of experience with their favorite games. With the launch of the new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 this year, developers need to strategize and plan for the game experience to be consistent across all platforms. At Virtuos we are charged up and full of talent that is ready to help bring these new games to the Nintendo Switch.”
