During Electronic Arts’ quarterly conference call for investors and analysts, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson talked about the company’s outlook on the Nintendo Switch after its launch.

Wilson explained that Electronic Arts “feels really good” about the Switch, and has a “tremendous relationship” with Nintendo. They’re “excited” by the fact that Nintendo had a very strong launch, bringing in a whole new player base into the ecosystem.

He also added that the publisher “continues to be bullish” on Nintendo’s new console, and is looking at other titles (on top of the already announced FIFA 18) that could be brought to the Switch.

Lastly, he clarified that the previously mentioned 105 million units estimate for sales of current generation consoles by the end of 2017 does not include the Switch, so any numbers that Nintendo manages to sell will be additive to that estimate.
