Utvecklare och utgivare står nästan i kö för att få ge ut sina spel till Nintendo Switch, inklusive giganter som Blizzard och Bethesda, men EA har hittills varit tämligen kallsinniga. Analytikern Jeffrey A. Cohen ville veta varföre och passade på att fråga om detta i samband med senaste kvartalsrapporten, med tanke på att spel som The Sims är som klippt och skuret för formatet. Men det verkar inte som att högste chefen Andrew Wilson kommer ändra strategi:

"Any time we're evaluating platform conversations, we are really looking at a couple of things. One, does the game really fit the profile of that platform in terms of the control or the community ecosystem? Two, do we think the community playing on that platform would appreciate the game to go there? Or would they prefer to play it somewhere else?

We have a lot of data that would suggest a great many Switch owners also own a Playstation 4 or an Xbox One or a PC and very often choose to play the games that we make on those platforms even though they have a Switch and they enjoy a lot of great content on the Switch. And so there's always an evaluation process that goes on a case-by-case basis. And I wouldn't say that The Sims would never go to the Switch, but I think we're doing really, really well attracting Sims players. As we said, we did the promotion in the last couple of months and brought in 7 million new Sims players that we expect will engage in that community on a platform that is really tailored to user-generated content, creativity and customization."

EA har dock inte helt avstått från Nintendo Switch, utan deras FIFA-spel har sedan FIFA 18 kommit till formatet, om än i ganska undermåliga versioner. Saknar du EA:s spel till Switch?
