Cloud computing to run the game on Switch?

It is safe to assume that the game will make use of cloud computing that will enable gamers to play the game. Several major titles have already made use of this to enable Nintendo Switch users to play their games. It includes major titles in Resident Evil 7, Assassin’s Creed Odessey and Control.

Action game, ‘Control’  first demands users to test out their device and internet signals with a 5-minute tutorial. After which it prompts users to purchase an Access Pass to play the game. Hitman 3 could join the ranks of all these games, if it also offers a cloud variant for Switch users following the announcement.

The world of gaming is certainly moving towards cloud computing, and it could soon become our reality. If cloud gaming takes over the game’s ecosystem, then gamers would step into a new realm where no title would be out of their reach.
