If you took a look at the headline and wondered, “What on Earth is Virtuos?”, you’d be forgiven for not recognizing the studio, but it turns out that it actually has a significant amount of pedigree behind it. Virtuos is a studio that works primarily with porting popular games to new consoles, and has Batman: Return to Arkham, Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, and several other high-profile games to its name. And now, it seems that the studio is busy at work on a game for the Switch
An eagle-eyed member of NeoGAF spotted a developer profile on LinkedIn for Xiaoyu Yang—the team’s senior programmer—and a portion of it refers to a Switch project that is being labelled a work in progress. That’s all that we know for now, and it’s anybody’s guess as to what it could be, but perhaps one of the projects mentioned above is being worked on for the Switch. Yang only joined the studio in March, although it’s not known if this project had been in the works prior to his arrival or after. Regardless, we’re sure to find out what this is soon enough.
