EA Explains Why Madden 19 Isn’t Coming To Nintendo Switch

Football fans are satisfied as FIFA 19 is coming to the Nintendo Switch, but those American Football fans amongst you will have been disappointed to hear that Madden 19 won’t be coming to the Nintendo Switch. GameSpot caught up with Madden 19 producer Ben Haumiller to find out whether the game could make its way to Nintendo’s latest system. Here’s what he had to say to the publication:

“We always think about every platform out there. It’s really a decision of what’s best for Madden and us as EA and where we’re going. You never rule out getting your game in front of players. You want to go where everyone is. We’d never rule it out. We just don’t have any current plans right now.”

  1. So, they basically just explained that it’s not coming – not why. I think it would be beneficial for the system, but I can see why EA might hold out for another year. Once NA is at 15-20M, Madden would be a super safe bet.

  2. Madden hasn’t changed in years. It looks a little better year after year but the gameplay feels like it did when I played it on GameCube. Still would have an audience on Switch though so not sure what EA is thinking here… oh but it’s EA so..

  3. EA is always thinking what is best, for their wallet, and end result is Battlefront.
    I might be interested in NHL game, but other than that, their sport titles do not interest me.

  4. As much as I hate EA, and I don’t really trust them at all, and their support of the Switch has been near the bottom of the barrel (I think only Blizzard is worse for their reluctance to touch the Switch so far, but COULD change if Diablo is coming I suppose, but at least FIFA are new games) this statement SCREAMS “non disclosure act” and Nintendo is planning on announcing Madden on Switch themselves. Might be wishful thinking, but I have a feeling that this potentially 45 min direct will be filled to the brim with Nintendo’s biggest third party software showing in well over a decade.

  10. DUH! Third party games sell like crap on Nintendo systems, they have since Wii days, because Nintendo’s drawing in more of the casuals, and less of the hard core, meaning that audience isn’t buying those types of games. The Switch is right now getting the Nintendo hardcores (those who bought the Wii U and 3DS- their lowest selling home and handheld systems). Nintendo’s trying to get more casuals, but that comes at the cost of 3rd party companies selling less and less, despite the inflated install base.

  11. What do people do with Madden 16′ 17′ and 18′ after they get outdated?

    If someone bought Madden 16′ in 2015 are they still playing that game 3 years later?
