Agreed on Fe, my guess is EA weren’t involved from the very beginning and Switch plans were already in place by the time EA became publisher.
History of EA not caring about handhelds may be the case, though Switch is leaps and bounds beyond any handheld generation before it. I can understand why things like Anthem won’t come to it, for as capable as Switch is there is a limit and I think their higher tier games probably go beyond that (speaking as someone who has no idea just how much it could actually handle, maybe it could, maybe not). But I just still don’t get why their other sports games or their smaller things like Sea of Solitude are skipping it entirely. Even Burnout Paradise Remasters which ended up being a direct port of a 360/PS3 era game with very few changes (if any) skipped over Switch, something that should have been able to run it perfectly fine. They are indeed a different company to who they were a decade ago, and their focuses today are completely different, but it still baffles me that they ignore Switch when they have games that that could work on it just fine. There could be a huge market for them on Switch but if it exists they won’t know it’s there because they’ve given it so little.
All that said, I’d rather them support Nintendo consoles after a major shakeup happens at EA which I’m hoping is an inevitability. They’ve become deplorable in so many ways that I hope it’s just a matter of time before their bubble bursts and people stop supporting their garbage practices and force them to change. I hope, anyway.
