Do you think we'll see Nintendo Switch support? All the other engines seem to have it or have it planned.

There is no official word on that but i certainly hope they add support for it. I for one would like to have my game on that platform at some point.

There's no support announced for it, so I wouldn't expect anything too soon.

With that said, I'd be surprised if part of the work on the rendering engine isn't to make new platforms like Linux, mobile and the Switch possible. It seems a lost opportunity not to try and expand into mobile now. With Khronos support in progress, and work on the Linux build getting done in the background...I'd be a little surprised if they didn't try and target mobile and the switch in the next 18 months.

EDIT: Personally, I would love the code to be able to build on a 64 bit Linux ARM HF platform, like the ODROID C2. That thing is pretty impressive for a SoC, with 2GB RAM, video capable of 4K 10bit playback, gigabit networking, and a 1.5ghz quad core CPU. I can see a SoC like that working as a game server.
