How many does EA need to sell to think it's profitable? If a million isn't enough then that's sad. I'm sure if they released all their games on Switch they'd sell enough to profit and save their company some face.
It's more about stroking their ego than actual profitability. EA's highest selling game on the switch is only the 31st highest on the Switch. Meanwhile, both PS4 and Xbox One have 8 titles in their top 30 that are made by EA. Not sure why they care so much since I'd be more focused on profits versus some meaningless rank.
