Nintendo has squashed rumours that its margin will be higher with the Switch OLED compared to the current model.
"A news report on July 15, 2021 (JST) claimed that the profit margin of the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) would increase compared to the Nintendo Switch. To ensure correct understanding among our investors and customers, we want to make clear that the claim is incorrect," Nintendo said.
It also clarified that it has no plans to release another Switch for the time being, essentially denying additional rumours that a Switch Pro is still in the works.
"We also want to clarify that we just announced that Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) will launch in October, 2021, and have no plans for launching any other model at this time," Nintendo wrote.
In its story from last week, Bloomberg said that the Switch OLED was estimated to cost around $10 more per unit to make, which would mean increased profit margins for Nintendo.
After Nintendo announced the OLED model in early July, Bloomberg talked to games industry analyst Serkan Toto who suggested that a Switch Pro might still be in the works.
"This new Switch looks more like an interim model than a real upgrade to me," he said. "This might just be a dummy upgrade until Breath Of The Wild 2 is ready and the component shortage is over next year."
