A short time ago, tongues were set wagging by the rumour that Burnout Paradise was getting remastered and would - apparently - be coming to Switch.

EA confirmed one part of that rumour yesterday with the announcement of Burnout Paradise Remastered on PS4 and Xbox One, but there's currently no sign of a Nintendo version - and the publisher is remaining tight-lipped on whether or not it's coming.

When pressed on the the chance of a Switch version, Polygon was told by an EA representative:

As for Switch, we have nothing to announce there.

Could this mean our hopes of seeing Burnout Paradise in portable form have hit a brick wall? Quite possibly, but it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility for Nintendo to have requested that EA hold back on any Switch announcement, and instead break the news during a forthcoming Nintendo Direct broadcast. That might be hopelessly optimistic, but we need some hope, right?

On PS4 and Xbox One the port will offer 60fps gameplay and is being developed by Criterion in collaboration with Stellar Entertainment Software, which is also based in Guildford, UK. Stellar is home to Paul Ross and Chris Roberts, both of whom have worked on the Burnout series previously. The game launches on March 16th.
