Mass Effect: Andromeda not planned for Nintendo Switch, Producer confirms
Since EA confirmed that it will support Nintendo Switch with games, many thought that the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda on the Nintendo console was virtually a fact. Unfortunately, it’s still too early to get any more excited, given that a BioWare producer said they are not working on this version of their RPG.
In a recent talk with Stevivor, Michael Gamble, a member of BioWare who worked on Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, said that, for the moment,they have no plans to bring Mass Effect: Andromeda on Nintendo Switch. However, it left some hope for the fans by not closing the door to this project.
“Yeah, not right now, no. We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows,” said Gamble.
As an additional note, Gamble made it clear that BioWare still have no plans for any kind of improvement for Mass Effect: Andromeda on Project Scorpio, Microsoft’s next console. So, we do not know if it will have a similar or better than that presented performance on PlayStation 4 Pro.
In related information, a reliable insider said his sources indicate that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be a launch title for Nintendo Switch. On the other hand, a member of Epic Games in Japan said there are several games under development on Unreal Engine 4 for Nintendo Switch.
Earlier, in October 2016, Michael Gamble confirmed that the title is scheduled for PC, PS4, Neo and Xbox One on Twitter, responding to a fan asking if the game will be announced for Nintendo Switch.
