During the Electronic Arts earnings call, management shared an update on the company’s stance on supporting the Nintendo Switch. So far, EA has only released 5 games on Switch, including FIFA 18, FIFA 19, FIFA 20, Unravel Two, and Fe. But looking ahead, can fans expect more releases on Switch.
EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said EA has been “very pleased” with “how well Nintendo has done with the Switch.” Nintendo just recently announced that the Switch has passed 52.48 million units sold, which is a very strong start for the system that launched in 2017.
The executive said EA is “always” discussing ideas with Nintendo for future game support. “As the platform grows, our interest in developing for it grows,” Jorgsensen said.
Jorgensen went on to say that EA has been cautious thus far with supporting the Switch because the platform’s best-selling games are made by Nintendo. That being said, with more than 52 million consoles sold, it seems the Switch has reached a critical mass for EA.
The executive teased, “You will hear some more things” in the future about EA’s plans to support the Switch.
