EA to Release More Games on Switch, 14 Games This Year

EA hosted its Q4 2020 financial results today and announced, among other things, plan to release 14 games between now and March 2021. The company also announced it will bring even more titles to the Nintendo Switch, a console the company hasn’t supported very strongly in the past.

During a call with investors today, EA announces plans to launch 14 titles in the next fiscal year. The list includes EA’s traditional, annual sports games like FIFA and Madden, as well as previously announced games like Command and Conquer Remastered, games on mobile, and Burnout Paradise on Switch.

Speaking of Burnout Paradise, EA also announced that it will launch “multiple” EA games on Switch this year. The company has supported the Switch with games like FIFA, but have been notably slower to adopt the console compared to other third-party developers.

One mystery is whether the next Battlefield game is part of that list. EA confirmed a new Battlefield will skip 2020 and instead release in 2021. Since the list only includes games up until March 2021, there’s a chance Battlefield isn’t the mysterious HD game EA mentioned in the call.

Other highlights from EA’s investor calls include big growth in its live service sector driven by games like Apex Legends and Ultimate Team sports games. Coincidentally, EA and Respawn revealed the Apex Legends Season 5 today.

The next game EA announced for Switch is Burnout Paradise Remastered which will retail for a whopping $50. Check out our Burnout Paradise review here.
