With Star Wars: The Last Jedi just around the corner the release of Star Wars Battlefront II is well-timed, and we can expect the FPS title to gain plenty of attention, not just for its connection to the wider Star Wars universe but because it's shaping up to be a very impressive title indeed.

With titles like DOOM and Wolfenstein II headed to Switch it's perhaps not unreasonable to ask if Battlefront II could make the leap as well; according to Motive Studios producer David Robillard - whose team handled the single-player campaign in the game - it's not on the cards at present, but EA hasn't ruled it out entirely:

This is something we'll explore if we see opportunities there, but it is not something that's on the book right now.

It's easy to dismiss this comment as someone simply sitting on the fence and refusing to stick their neck out, but who would have thought that Bethesda would be bringing two of its current-gen shooters to Switch a few months ago? If EA sees the value of the Switch as a commercial platform - and with its incredible sales, that point can't be far away - then we could potentially see the game come to the console in the future.

The original Star Wars Battlefront II came to the PSP, after all...
