A port of a 7? year old game and a brand new entry in one of the biggest gaming franchises on the planet selling about the same isn't exactly a good thing. Besides, EA and Bethesda aim for very different audiences. Bethesda are very much singleplayer focused, so sales are main factor for them. While EA are heavily multiplayer/microtransaction focused. If people are buying their games (not event that many, to be fair) but not sticking around for the MP and paying for microtransactions then they're not really worth investing too much into.

Plus, it doesn't matter whether it "made money for EA". It matters whether it made enough to be worth investing in over something else. Would they be better off investing that money or time into something else that could increase revenue for the PS4/Xbox versions? EA seem to think so.

Porting games on Switch is REALLY easy. That's why you find many independant games on Switch (and PS4/Xone). Also, I am amazed by the argument "microtransactions". Do you have more than "I said so, so this is true", like a source ? No ? Well ...

Do you, or the OP. have a source?

Because as far as I'm concerned not porting things because they don't consider it to be a worthwhile investment makes an absolute tonne more sense than because of some made up grudge bullshit. "waa waa waa, EA aren't releasing their games on my console. It's because they hate Nintendo. EA are so evil". Come on, that just sounds stupid and you know it.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
