EA is Looking at Other Titles they ‘Might Bring to Switch’

After strong initial sales of Nintendo’s new platform, it would appear that EA may be changing their tune about supporting the device.

EA’s support of the Switch has always felt begrudging. While Japanese developers rushed to support to the system back at it’s January reveal, western developers did not. One of the more awkward third-party reveals came from EA where they announced FIFA, and that was it. No footage, no Battlefield 1, no Titanfall 2, or any other major EA title. Since then, Switch has sold nearly three million units, and EA is paying attention.

During the company’s Q4 2017 results earnings call, as transcribed by Seeking Alpha, EA CEO Andrew House was asked about the Switch. In response, House declared that the company is looking at other titles that they could possibly bring to the system:

“So we feel really good about it. Again, we came out early and said that we’ll be supporting the Nintendo Switch with our biggest title in FIFA. We have a tremendous relationship with Nintendo and have done for many, many years and are excited by the fact that they have come out very strong and are bringing in a whole new player base into the ecosystem. We continue to be bullish on it and are looking at other titles that we might bring to the Switch.”

Now, this doesn’t mean that EA is suddenly going to be bringing all of their games to Switch. It will likely be a case-by-case basis, and dependent on how well the game adapts to the weaker tech in the console. It remains unlikely that we’ll see a game like Star Wars Battlefront II make the jump to Switch, but a title like Madden NFL might. We’ll just have to wait and see what EA does.
