UPDATE: Nanni has owned up on this score. He's also said that once the initial release is out of the way, Boss Key will look at other platforms:


ORIGINAL STORY: LawBreakers - the new FPS title from Cliff Bleszinski's Boss Key Studios - is headed to PlayStation 4, but according to the game's lead designer, a Switch version might not be possible due to a "lack of buttons".

Speaking to GamingBolt, Dan Nanni expressed his concern with the lack of available inputs on Switch:

GB: Lawbreakers isn’t coming to the Nintendo Switch.

DN: We haven’t announced that yet! Who knows? (Laughs)

GB: But if Nintendo Switch sells well do you think there’s a possibility?

DN: 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.

We assume that Nanni means the Joy-Con on its own, because when two Joy-Con are being used together in the Joy-Con grip (or the Pro Controller is used), then Nintendo gamers have the exact same number of buttons as available on the PlayStation 4's DualShock 4.
