mass_effect-andromeda5A recent report has suggested that current-gen games might not be ported onto the Nintendo Switch, and it seems that if you were looking forward to Mass Effect: Andromeda, you probably shouldn’t get your hopes up. This was actually revealed back in December 2016 in an interview with Stevivor (via Nintendo Everything).

In the interview, BioWare producer Michael Gamble pretty much shot down the idea of Andromeda arriving on the Switch. Gamble was quoted as saying, “Yeah, not right now, no. We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that.”

While he did not come right out and say it, it sounds like BioWare is waiting to see how well the Switch does in terms of demand, before deciding if a Switch version of Andromeda could be worth the investment. An earlier rumor suggested that demand was one of the reasons why there are no plans to bring games like Andromeda to the Switch, and this certainly sounds like a confirmation of sorts.

In the meantime EA themselves have teased that they have a “big” game planned for the console, but we’re not sure what it could be. Nintendo is expected to detail the console come 12th of January, which is next week, so stay tuned for more updates.
