Earlier today, GIANTS Software and Focus Home Interactive officially revealed Farming Simulator 19 with a CGI announcement trailer and a short rundown of new features. I was pretty excited when I first saw the announcement, and eagerly watched the reveal trailer, but my excitement dropped a bit at the end when the platform logos were shown. As expected, the game is coming in late 2018 to PC, as well as PS4 and Xbox One. But, the Nintendo Switch logo was noticeably absent. There was also no mention of it in the announcement over on the official Farming Simulator website.
The previous iteration, Farming Simulator 17, was released on Switch late last year. Although it was a year later after the other versions, it was still great that GIANTS put their efforts into bringing it over to the system. That makes me wonder why the new Farming Simulator 19 isn’t also coming over.
I reached out to the developers for comment but did not receive a response at the time of this writing. My theory is that FS19 could actually be coming to Switch, but it may end up being released after the other versions like FS17 was. We’ve seen this happen with other games, so it wouldn’t be a unique situation. But, there’s also the chance that it just may not happen at all; we’ll just have to wait and see. I do hope it comes over, as I thoroughly enjoyed the Switch edition of Farming Simulator 17.
