Path of Exile on Switch: Will Path of Exile Come to Nintendo Switch?
For the near future, Path of Exile will not come to the Nintendo Switch. There has been no official news or announcements regarding a port.
The Nintendo Switch has improved on previous Nintendo consoles in relations with third-party developers and has seen a few major titles ported for a Switch release, both from major publishers such as Blizzard's Diablo III or id Software's Doom Eternal and from indie developers such as Toby Fox's Deltarune and Team Cherry's Hollow Knight: Silksong. Thus, a port for Path of Exile is not too far out of the ordinary, even given the Nintendo Switch's rather small library of Mature-rated games.
