Rumour: Port Specialist Bringing High Profile Shooter To Nintendo Switch


In recent weeks, rumours have resurfaced about a more powerful variant of the Nintendo Switch launching in 2021.

With this in mind, development studio Fractured Byte recently posted a job listing seeking a C++ game developer (familiar with Switch) to work on an Unreal Engine project. The genre is a “shooter” and one of the tasks is to “aid shipping games like Borderlands and Borderlands 2 for Nintendo Switch”. Attached is a link to Digital Foundry’s Borderlands Switch analysis.

YouTuber Doctre81 – who discovered this listing – speculates the “shooter” this studio might be working on, which is still supposedly in the early “planning stages”, is a port of Borderlands 3 for Switch.

According to Fractured Byte’s official website, the company offers “game porting” services. Upon further investigation, it’s the same studio that collaborated with Turn Me Up Games to help bring Borderlands: The Legendary Collection to Switch. In addition to this, the studio assisted Turn Me Up with the Switch version of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

It’s worth noting the Borderlands games already available on Switch are powered by Unreal Engine 3.

Given the history of Fractured Byte, its ties with Turn Me Up, the mention of this game being a shooter, and the job specifically requiring an individual who can work with Switch and ship games like Borderlands, well…maybe the Doc is onto something.


In saying this, Borderlands 3 was only released last year – could the Switch handle it? While it was released on UE4, who knows what magic a developer could work. This is also where the rumours about a more powerful version of Nintendo’s hardware come into play – potentially providing a much-needed boost to run certain current-gen releases available on other platforms.

Doctre81 previously uncovered evidence of The Witcher 3 on Switch well before its announcement, and in more recent times found a Killer7 Switch listing on a LinkedIn profile, which was later on confirmed as not being “in the works”.

Do you think a game like Borderlands 3 could possibly be on its way to the Switch? What other “shooters” do you this development studio could perhaps be working on? Share your thoughts down below.
