During the same chat with GameSpot about the Switch version of Diablo III, Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell shot down hopes of StarCraft 2 being ported across to the platform.

The Nintendo 64 version of StarCraft was cited as the reason why Blizzard likely wouldn’t make an attempt to port the insanely popular RTS across to Nintendo’s latest hardware:

The N64 version of StarCraft was cool but you had to change the game quite a bit to make it work properly on console… StarCraft 2 is next level requirements from how much dexterity you need with a mouse and keyboard, so I think that would have been a very difficult port. It would have [to] change the core gameplay.

Considering Starcraft 2 is still exclusive to the PC many years after its original release, this response isn’t all that surprising.

Overwatch appears to have better chances of a Switch release, given the fact Stilwell said it was "feasible" and it’s already been made available on other current generation console hardware.
