Star Wars Squadrons is proving popular with fans of the beloved space opera, and, as often happens, this has led to questions about whether the game will be ported to the Nintendo Switch.
In recent years, many big name, recent AAA games have been expertly squeezed onto the diminuitive Nintendo console, such as DOOM and The Outer Worlds. These port jobs aren’t always perfect, but they show what can be done when a game gets the right treatment.
Sadly, though, EA hasn’t had a particualrly good relationship with Nintendo in recent years, and the company seems very hesitant to release a lot of titles on the Switch.
Will Star Wars Squadrons release on Nintendo Switch?
Bad news: Star Wars Squadrons is not currently scheduled for release on the Nintendo Switch. While plans may change in the future, an EA community manager has made it clear that the company only ever had plans to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
This isn’t to say that the game won’t ever be ported to a Nintendo device – especially if rumours of a Switch Pro end up proving true. If these rumours prove true, more modern AAA games might end up being ported to the system.
For the foreseeable future, though, Star Wars Squadrons is not making its way to the Switch. However, other EA titles might be on the way to a Nintendo platform.
What games are EA releasing on Switch?
EA is beginning to release games on the Nintendo Switch. This year, the company’s Switch lineup includes Burnout Paradise, FIFA 21, Apex Legends, Lost in Random, Velan Studios game, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, and Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville.
If these titles perform well, there’s a chance that EA will consider releasing more games on the Switch over the coming years.
If this is the case, then it’s not impossible that, eventually, Star Wars Squadrons might get a Switch release. The odds are stacked against this ever happening, but then, any good Star Wars fan will remind you never to tell them the odds.
