Cyberpunk 2077 is shaping up to be one of the biggest game releases in 2020, and CD Projekt RED isn’t ruling out a Nintendo Switch release.

The upcoming release will already be pushing the current-gen consoles to their absolute limits, but that doesn’t mean fans aren’t hoping it will be able to release on Nintendo’s hybrid console in one way or another.

Although The Witcher 3 was, and still is, a very demanding game on both consoles and PC, the developers found a way to strip it down enough to get it running on the Switch.

Could Cyberpunk actually come to the Switch?

The game went through a major graphical overhaul, but it was able to keep much of what makes The Witcher a great game. All things considered, it’s a phenomenal accomplishment it’s even running in the first place.

Since the developers were able to work their magic once, fans are hopeful they would be able to do it again and get Cyberpunk on the underpowered device.

In an interview with OnMSFT, CD Projekt RED’s John Mamais said there currently aren’t any plans for a Switch port, but doesn’t exactly say it won’t happen.

“I don’t know if Cyberpunk 2077 would work on the Nintendo Switch. It might be too heavy for it,” he said. “But then, we did put Witcher 3 on it and we thought that would be too heavy too but somehow we pulled it off.”

On important fact to note is that The Witcher 3 released back in 2015, while Cyberpunk 2077 will be a 2020 title, so technology is going to be a lot more advanced than it was then.

Cyberpunk has been delayed until September.

That’s not to say a Switch version is impossible because we’re still seeing 2020 games like DOOM: Eternal receiving ports to the Nintendo device.

A port of Cyberpunk would most likely require a major drop in resolution and severely downgraded textures. Of course, that’s something players have proven they can live with if the Witcher port is any indication.

For the time being though, there are not any plans for a Nintendo Switch version of the game. However, as we’ve learned in the past, you can never say never.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
