Swery recently released Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise on Switch as an exclusive. For people wondering about the exclusivity, Swery says he had no say in the decision. However, he’s very happy with the opportunity to work on a sequel for Deadly Premonition. Here’s what he had to say:

This may seem different from how you imagine it, but the director of a game has no say in what platforms a game is released on. That is decided upon by the producer and more ‘important’ (LOL) people. All I can say is that: “Platform doesn’t matter to me – all I care about is whether or not I have a chance to make a game. This time, I got the chance to make DP2 on the Switch. How could I say no to that?!”
