In a recent interview with EDGE, EA”s executive vice president Patrick Soderlund suggested that the publisher could be thinking of bringing more games from EA’s catalogue onto the Switch, although it seems that this will largely hinge on how well FIFA 18 does on the platform, which is expected to be released towards the end of next month.
According to Soderlund, he states that EA would love to support the Switch and help Nintendo grow their base, but he also adds that as resources are finite, EA has to be smart about how they use it. “But at the same time we have to look at it from a resource standpoint and, at some point, the numbers become a factor.”
“So for us it’s about supporting the platform, building technology for the platform, testing it out with big things like FIFA – and maybe a couple of others, we’ll see – and if they go well, I see no reason why we shouldn’t have as much of our portfolio on that platform as possible. I hope we get there, that would be my personal ambition.” This isn’t the first time that EA has expressed their interest in the Switch, but whether or not the future will entail more big name EA titles arriving onto the console remains to be seen.
