The US had a record-breaking March and a huge Q1 according to figures just in from the NPD. With the Switch, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and the PS5 DualSense leading their categories in terms of dollar sales for the month.

Total consumer spend for for hardware, content and accessories reached a massive $5.6bn, up 18 per cent on last year, turbocharged by new consoles, the continued success of the Switch, and of course the pandemic changing behaviour patterns.

To that end the first quarter totalled $14.9bn, up 30 per cent on last year.

The month’s hardware sales were up 47 per cent on last year, with a record $680m, smashing the previous record of $552m in March 2008. Year to date hardware spending is up a ludicrous 81 per cent on last year, largely thanks to new consoles, at $1.4bn. It’s hard to imagine the heights that might be achieved when the much-rumoured new Switch arrives.

Speaking of the Switch, it was the best-selling platform in terms of both units and dollar sales for the month. While across the first quarter the stock-restrained PS5 totted up the most dollar sales overall. Despite that, the PS5 is “the fastest selling console in U.S. history in both unit and dollar sales” based on its first five months on the market.

In terms of games sales, not including post-launch spending, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was the biggest seller for March, at least on paper – as digital sales are unreported for the previous number one, now at number four, Super Mario 3D World. Following up on Cold War we Monster Hunter: Rise and Outriders at 2 and 3.

Interestingly in just one month on only Switch and PC, Monster Hunter: Rise is already the second biggest selling franchise title of all time, which gives some idea of how much Monster Hunter: World (which is first) grew the franchise.

Also Outriders, while no specific figures are available, charted 3rd on both PlayStation and Xbox platforms, despite being available for Xbox as part of Xbox Game Pass.

Finally the PS5 Dual Sense rules the roost in accessories. Being the leading dollar sales item for both the month and the quarter. The month was up 26 per cent on last year, while the quarter was up 42 per cent to $717m.

Handheld gaming has declined in recent years, with Nintendo being the only major company still pursuing the medium. It's been over a year since the PS Vita was discontinued now, and Xbox never had a handheld console to begin with. Rather than make another DS, Nintendo opted to create the Switch, a console which in and of itself was revolutionary. Its hybrid console/handheld design allows it to fill a niche that the PS4 and Xbox One simply aren't able to despite its lack of power, as players seem to love its portability. Though there have been some attempts to bring triple-A games to the console, a Call of Duty on Switch could have huge implications.

At the moment, there are no Call of Duty games on Switch, and in fact, there haven't been any on Nintendo systems since Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Wii U seven years ago. It's not entirely clear why the franchise decided to step away from Nintendo, as there are a fair share of rated M games on Switch, so maturity must not be the issue. Regardless, outside of Call of Duty: Mobile, fans haven't really been able to take the experience with them, and putting Call of Duty on Switch could be the way to make that happen.

Call of Duty on Switch Could Revolutionize Triple-A Games on Switch

Call Of Duty Nintendo Switch Games

It should be said that there are several games on the Switch that are already considered triple-A. Titles like Skyrim, Mortal Kombat, and The Witcher 3 have all made their way to the handheld console, but there is still a noticeable lack of representation from big, upcoming games. Highly anticipated upcoming titles like Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin's Creed: Valhalla are opting to skip the Switch in favor of the big three (PC, PlayStation, and Xbox), and some of these titles are even coming to Stadia but not Switch. Another notable example, of course, is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. In theory, it could be the first Call of Duty on Switch, but there's really no plans for that, and there doesn't seem to be any whatsoever.

Whether or not any of those games will eventually make their way to the Switch remains to be seen, but the question still remains of why they choose to pass them up in the first place. Though its hardware may not be as powerful as other current gen consoles, a gap which will only increase once next gen PS5 consoles and Xbox Series X/S consoles release this week, it is unparalleled in terms of convenience and portability. Some fans may want to play these amazing games, like Call of Duty on Switch, and many would be willing to sacrifice some visual fidelity or suffer slightly worse performance in order to make that happen.

In regards to the possibilities of Call of Duty on Switch, the answer appears to be a resounding no, at least for the time being. Neither Activision nor Treyarch have made any announcement hinting that the next Call of Duty game will come to the platform, and there's no reason to believe that Call of Duty 2021will either. It's unfortunate, but it seems to be a reality of the time that major titles like these don't come to the Switch.

With time though, some older titles do end up on Nintendo's Switch console. For example, Skyrim came to the Switch six years after its initial release, and The Witcher 3, which initially released in 2015, didn't come to the console until 2019. It could be that in a few years, Call of Duty on Switch becomes a reality for Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, or others , but given the necessity of an online community for CoD games, that seems unlikely too. If Call of Duty were to release a game on Switch that did well, it's possible that other triple-A studios would follow suit and start developing for the console, but until that day comes, fans will simply have to wait.
