Battlefield 1 for the NX? We’ll see…
Electronic Arts is in “constant communication” with Nintendo, executive vice president Patrick Soderlund said.
When the Nintendo NX comes to market, Soderlund said, EA will be there—”if it makes sense.” The EA executive told BBC that folks at the company “are huge fans of Nintendo.” In fact, Nintendo is one of the reasons Soderlund himself began making games.
Back in 2011, EA promised an “unprecedented partnership” with Nintendo and Wii U. However, the publisher ended up releasing only a few games for the system.
Nintendo NX is expected to launch globally in March 2017. Not much is currently known about the company’s new system, though it’s been rumored the Nintendo NX will drop discs in favor of cartridges.
As for EA, the publisher recently announced its next Battlefield game as Battlefield 1. It’ll be set in World War 1, with an expected release date of October 21.
