Rumor: Smite Heading To Switch With Crossplay
Smite, the action-MOBA from Paladins developer Hi-Rez Studios, might be coming to Switch soon according to dataminers. Coupled with long-running rumors that crossplay is soon to be implemented for the game, the Smite family might just get a lot larger.
In the latest update for the Smite client, dataminers for the game discovered a "Switch Founder's Pack" item for sale, hidden in the update files. This would indicate that the game is headed for the Switch, especially given how similar Paladins launched on the console by offering a founder's pack during the beta. This also might mean that the Switch version is coming quite soon.
Rumors have been stirring for a few months about a Switch version, which came up around the same time that Hi-Rez openly started talking about crossplay for the various versions of the game. The developer was also candid that they are hoping to work with Sony on crossplay initiatives, though right now that is a realm exclusively owned by Epic's Fortnite.
Smite is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
