EA is bringing seven games to the Nintendo Switch in the next 12 months

Including Burnout Paradise: Remastered and Apex Legends

EA is bringing a total of seven games to the Nintendo Switch over the next 12 months, the publisher revealed today.

During today's EA Play live event, EA made the announcement alongside the reveal of Apex Legends' upcoming fall release on the console, alongside plans for a simultaneous Steam release and implementation of crossplay.

And aside from Apex, Burnout Paradise: Remastered is planned for launch on the Switch tomorrow.

That leaves five unknown titles over the next 12 months. EA did not drop further hints, though the publisher has previously been asked by investors about the viability of The Sims 4 on Nintendo's console.

At the time, CEO Andrew Wilson responded that EA has "a lot of data" showing that "a great many Switch owners also own a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One or a PC, and very often choose to play the games that we make on those platforms even though they have a Switch and they enjoy a lot of great content on the Switch."

However, also in today's EA Play presentation, it was revealed that The Sims 4 is now out on Steam alongside A Way Out, Titanfall 2, Deadspace 3, Need for Speed: Payback, Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

Other reveals in today's presentation included a series of EA Originals titles from Hazelight Studios (It Takes Two), Zoink Games (Lost in Random), and Final Strike Games (Rocket Arena) as well as next-gen teases of Madden NFL 21 and FIFA 21.

EA Motive's Star Wars: Squadrons was also shown with a gameplay showcase, with plans for launch on October 2, 2020 for PC, console, and VR.

In-progress projects from BioWare, EA Dice, and EA Motive were briefly teased without names, and the presentation concluded with the reveal that a new Skate title is now in development.
