Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick has shared that the publisher is “very optimistic” about Nintendo Switch, and expect that the portable home console’s sales performance will “continue to be great.”

“We were excited six months ago and supportive. We’re excited now. We have NBA 2K18 and WWE 2K18 coming for Switch. The sales have been great,” Zelnick began on an earnings call.

“We expect sales to continue to be great, we’re very optimistic around the platform, [and] we’re very supportive of Nintendo. So, the only thing that’s changed in the last six months, is [that] our initial belief has been reinforced by the early very strong results.”

Zelnick has previously stated that the publisher would “selectively” support Nintendo Switch, but will do so “long form.”

NBA 2K18 will be a digital-only release on Nintendo Switch when at launch on September 19th, with a physical version to arrive later. WWE 2K18 is still scheduled to see release in Fall 2017.
