It seems developers aren’t waiting around for Nintendo to make a beefier model of the Switch. Along with Control: Ultimate Edition – Cloud Version hitting the platform today, Hitman 3: Cloud Version will be coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console sometime in 2021. The epic conclusion of the World of Assassination trilogy, it’s curious that IO Interactive and Eidos aren’t porting the other games over in the interim.
It’s not clear if this version of Hitman 3 will launch alongside the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X ports, but it seems likely. Being that it’s a streamed title, there’s no reason that Switch players would have to wait longer to play with their console brethren.
Both Hitman 3 and Control: Ultimate Edition won’t be the first time the Switch has received cloud-based iterations of popular titles. In the past, both Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Resident Evil 7 made their way over to Nintendo’s console, though only in Japan. The results weren’t great, but cloud tech has been getting better in the years since.
As far as Control goes, things aren’t looking up. The demo available on the eShop is…spotty, at best. I suppose it’s better than nothing, but we can only hope that IO Interactive better optimizes Hitman 3 for the console. The price will also be an issue since I can’t imagine anyone spending $60 to simply stream a title.
