EA Will Bring “One of their Bigger Games” To Nintendo Switch; Can’t Yet Predict if It’ll be Successful

During the UBS Global Technology Conference, Electronic Arts Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen gave a few hints on the publisher’s involvement with Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Switch.

Jorgensen mentioned that they’ll support it with “a game or two,” and that we should assume that it’s one of the publisher’s bigger games.

“In terms of Nintendo, in their announcement they announced that we’ll be supporting with a game or two on that new platform. We haven’t yet announced what game, but you should assume that it’s one of our bigger games we’ve been involved with.”

Jorgensen also explained that it’s too early for the publisher to predict whether the console will be successful or not.

“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.”

It’ll certainly be interesting to see which franchise Electronic Arts will bring to the Nintendo Switch. For the moment it’s certainly hard to say: Mass Effect? Battlefield? Titanfall? Or maybe a sport title, or maybe The Sims? Your guess is as good as mine for now.

Nintendo finally unveiled the Switch last month with a preview  video, and announced that a full reveal will come on January 12th. We might learn more about Electronic Arts mysterious big game then,
