Bloomberg: Analysts believe Switch peaked in 2020, but suppliers & software makers believe it will accelerate further

Bloomberg has revealed that many analysis’s believe that Nintendo’s hit console the Switch peaked in 2020 due to the pandemic, but software makers, retailers, and suppliers, don’t believe this to be the case and expect the console to continue to set records for the next few years. Bloomberg is reporting that the company has a wealth of game releases lined up for both the current Nintendo Switch system and for the slightly more powerful revision which is expected to launch later this year.

A series of marquee game releases is expected to drive software sales next fiscal year to 250 million units, far more than the record 205 million units forecast for the current year, according to the partners and suppliers, speaking anonymously as the plans are not public. Analysts have also projected software sales would fall next year.

  1. And they seem to have a grip on the manufacturing side of things. As in no scalpers thankfully cough ps5 xbox series x

  2. The Switch is 4 years old. I don’t think that we’re going to be able to get another long lasting console as the original GameBoy, at least without enhanced revisions. A 5 or 6 year life cycle should be enough

  3. There are so many franchises they could revive and get on the Switch, could be a very fun back end of this hardware cycle. Adding N64 games to the online library would be cool, too.

  4. Or better yet, Gameboy and GBA games on the Switch, I don’t know if that would sell units, but I’d sure be excited.

  5. Nintendo just need to keep doing it’s own thing instead of trying to directly competing with other platforms, it’s working great so far and the numbers are proof enough.
