Certainly, with the addition of Nintendo consoles to their catalog, they would have brought the Call of Duty series to the three main gaming consoles of the current generation: PlayStation, Xbox and finally Nintendo Switch.
The game appearing on Nintendo platforms is not the first for the franchise, however, as major entries such as Modern Warfare, World at War and Black Ops are all available on Nintendo DS and Wii.
Nintendo consoles also received numerous exclusive COD titles for their consoles that were unplayable elsewhere, such as: B. Modern Warfare: Mobilized and Black Ops DS.
The last COD game to appear on a Nintendo console was Call of Duty: Ghosts on Wii U. However, recent developments suggest the franchise is returning to Nintendo.
