THQ Nordic have announced that the release date for a Switch version of Titan Quest is 31 July 2018 through their official Twitter account. The fans' reaction was split between those eagerly awaiting it on Switch and the disgruntled.

Titan Quest came to consoles back in March 2018 and it had a somewhat rocky road ahead of it due to the many bugs that plagued the release. It was still announced even back then that the Nintendo Switch version will be joining the fold but it wasn't specified when, until today that is.

When THQ Nordic announced the plans for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players weren't satisfied that the Switch is getting a release before the other two console versions get polished. Meanwhile, the parts of the Switch community were thrilled that the game is coming to their platform at all.

One thing that both sides are curious about though is local co-op. A patch aiming to introduce it to consoles was promised a while ago but it has not come to pass yet for either Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Nintendo Switch players are interested in getting an resolution of this conundrum as well, but it may take a while before THQ Nordic answer it, as they have announced they will be missing E3 2018 while enjoying the FIFA World Cup.

The World Cup will start next Thursday, on 14 June 2018 so unless new info about Titan Quest Switch comes before that, it is likely that no info will be revealed before Gamescom 2018 which will take place from 21 to 25 August 2018. Pricing hasn't been announced either, but chances are that it will not deviate from the game's price on PC which is $19,99 ; €19,99 or £17,99.

The game has only one expansion pack, Ragnarok, which bears the same price as the base game. Players who want to try it out sooner may want to check their Steam libraries as Titan Quest was available through various promotions and sales over the years, meaning they may have grabbed and forgotten about it.

If it turns out to be the case, they will also find the Anniversary Edition, as it was added for free to the libraries of any previous Titan Quest owners.
