EA’s on-off relationship with Nintendo platforms has been a big roller coaster ride over the past few years. Talk of unprecedented partnerships has given way to pretty much total apathy. The company has gone on the charm offensive to assure Switch owners that it is still keen to bring it’s best games to the system.
It would seem that the recently announced addition to the franchise, isn’t one such game. It has been confirmed for release on PS4, Xbox One and PC. This open-world street racer will include the normal raft of vehicles, illegal street racing events and microtransactions.
Kevin Johnson, Community Engagement Specialist for EA, was asked about the chances of NFS Heat coming to Switch. His reply was predictable if nothing else:
Kevin Johnson, Community Engagement Specialist:Thanks for the question, we currently have no plans to release NFS Heat on any other platforms other than what we’ve already announced.
It’s perhaps not all that shocking that EA has decided against bringing the title to Switch, but you do have to wonder what its strategy is with the console. Would you liked to have seen the latest NFS title on your hybrid system, or, as has been previously claimed, will you simply play it on another platform?
