Activision will release two games in 2020 based on its existing IP

Activision has released its quarterly financial results and a mountain of data to parse through. But among other things, it has been revealed that two unannounced games based on the publisher’s existing IP will release in 2020 for unspecified platforms.

The precise quotation taken from a PowerPoint presentation is as follows: “While nearly all employees transitioned to working from home, we continue to expect to deliver a robust slate of content through the year, including the next premium release for Call of Duty, two titles based on library IP from Activision, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, regional testing for new mobile titles, and ongoing live operations across our key titles.”

To be fair, very little in that sentence is likely to apply to Nintendo Switch — Call of Duty has never come to Switch, and World of Warcraft is… obviously a PC MMO. But there is plenty of possibility for the unannounced Activision games, whatever they are, to come to Nintendo Switch.

One of the two titles is very likely a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game, as professional skater Jason Dill has stated such a title exists. Tony Hawk has found its way to Nintendo platforms before, and it could find its way there again.

The other Activision IP could be any number of things, like a new Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon. Whatever these games turns out to be, we’ll cross our fingers for a Switch release.

In other news, EA announced in an earnings call that it will bring “multiple” games to Nintendo Switch this year.
