Update (Mon 22nd June, 2020 21:40 BST): Since EA revealed it would be bringing seven games to the Nintendo Switch over the next 12 months, we've been wondering what exactly is on the way. While we know that Burnout Paradise Remastered and Apex Legends will be part of this line-up, what else can we expect?
VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb has now chimed in with his own list. While many Switch owners would no doubt love to see titles like Titanfall 2, The Sims 4 and even Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order up and running on the system, apparently that won't be happening:
In reality, none of those games are coming to Switch. Or, at least, EA doesn’t plan to port them to Nintendo’s console over the next year.
According to Jeff and his own source who is "familiar with the publisher's release slate," they include a remaster of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) by Criterion Games, the third-person multiplayer Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, and an EA Originals title from Velan Studios.
So there you have it - these are the seven EA games reportedly coming to the Switch within the next 12 months. We've shared our thoughts on the topic, but make sure you let us know yours by posting a comment.
Original story (Fri 19th Jun, 2020 00:30 BST): It appears EA's CEO Andrew Wilson wasn't joking in May when he said the third-party video giant was planning to release "multiple" games on the Nintendo Switch.
At EA Play Live earlier today, Respawn Entertainment's Senior Social Media Manager Alex Ackerman announced the global publisher would be bringing seven - yes, seven - games to the Switch over the next 12 months.
"You can expect seven new games coming to Switch in the next 12 months - including Burnout Paradise coming tomorrow, and Apex Legends later this year."
So that's two down, what are the rest? One other seems to be FIFA 21 - but does this total also include the EA Originals title that's just been announced? We'll just have to wait and find out over the coming months.
