EA wants to wait and see for now.
While some third-party developers have already openly declared their support for Nintendo’s upcoming home console, EA and BioWare are holding back a little, and have stated that there are no plans to bring Mass Effect: Andromeda over to the Switch. In an interview with Stevivor, BioWare’s Michael Gamble discussed the strengths of Sony’s new PS4 Pro, as well as how the hardware could benefit the latest entry in the Mass Effect series. When asked about a possible Switch version, Gamble was quick to dismiss any floating rumors.
‘Gamble also shot down plans for a version of Andromeda on Nintendo’s hybrid console, the Switch.
“Yeah, not right now, no,” he said. “We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that.”’
Of course, they’re not ruling out the possibility. If the Switch ends up being a massive hit in the market, it’s very likely that Andromeda will eventually make its way over to the new console.
