Looking back on the history of Nintendo consoles, the average refresh rate between generations has been roughly 5.5 years. When looking at handheld systems we saw updated hardware about once every year since the release of Gameboy Advance in 2001 with numerous versions of the Advance, DS and 3DS families. With three months to go we move past the average release threshold for main consoles and even if I still love the Switch to death I can't help but feel that it has peaked some time ago. We no longer get big first party titles and most other releases are inferior ports of games that's been available on other platforms for a while. I've no doubt Nintendo are working on the next generation of hardware but I can't help but feel curious about what direction they ultimately decide on taking with their next generation. Will it simply be a Switch 2.0 with improved hardware and an updated OS with some QoL improvements, or will they go back to classic console design with the Switch range as their handheld alternative? With 4K TVs steadily becoming the norm I'm expecting their next console to be at least as powerful as the PS5/Series X, anything weaker won't fly for a piece of hardware released 2-3 years after those consoles. It wouldn't surprise me if they would go for much weaker hardware, though.
It's been rumoured for a while, but it's looking increasingly likely Rocksteady's new game is a Suicide Squad game called...erm... Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League Yeah, ok. It still seems to be a way off, but there's been various confirmations the last few days and Eurogamer have just confirmed it as well. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-06-22-yes-batman-arkham-developer-rocksteady-is-making-a-suicide-squad-game Edit: 2022 release date and trailer:
