Though it feels like Switch is late to the Overwatch party with this month’s release of the game on the platform, this launch has actually been a long time coming.

In an interview with The Verge, Director Jeff Kaplan went into detail about how the port made its way to Switch:

“Literally the day the Switch came out, we were thinking about it. I remember immediately talking to people around the office saying, ‘What would it take for us to be here?’

It was much easier to get Diablo on the device than it was to get Overwatch. And, like everything we do here, we wanted to make sure to do it right. It was just a long process of figuring out how to handle the development in a way that we felt like we would be very proud of the end product.”

In addition, Producer Yes Wanagi said, “the bulk of our efforts on the Switch were a lot of heavy optimization.”

Overwatch comes to Switch October 15. Will you be playing when it launches?
