At the UBS Global Technology Conference, EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen has hinted that we can expect the publisher to support Nintendo Switch “with a game or two,” and that one will be among the “bigger games” that they have worked on.
“In terms of Nintendo, in their announcement they announced that we’ll be supporting with a game or two on that new platform,” Jorgensen revealed to attendees. “We haven’t yet announced what game, but you should assume that it’s one of our bigger games we’ve been involved with.”
As to whether Jorgensen believes that Nintendo Switch can be a success, he admits that it is too early to make a prediction but showed concern at whether it can replace smart devices when used as a portable.
He added: “We’re excited for Nintendo, it’s an interesting device, but I can’t yet predict how broad it’s going to be, and will people be interested in a portable device alongside their regular portable device that they have.”
Nintendo Switch will release worldwide in March 2017.
