My friend just bought one a few days ago.  We scoured pretty much every deal around looking for the best deal.  Takes all of 10 minutes looking around every online and in store bundle to see Fifa included....  

Just looked at Amazon and FIFA is not included. It's an option, but costs you an extra 55 quid...

Don't know about Amazon but lots of stores in Europe unofficially include FIFA. We also saw it with PS4 when Xbox had the official marketing. EA just want the game in as many hands as possible. They probably don't care as much about revenue at retail as they rake in huge amounts of cash in microtransactions.

For instance, in the UK:

Game UK
Xbox One S 1TB + Shadow of the Tomb Raider = £249
Xbox One S 1TB + Shadow of the Tomb Raider + FIFA 19 = £229
Xbox One S 1TB + extra controller = £249
Xbox One S 1TB + extra controller +  FIFA 19 = £229
Xbox One X 1TB + Shadow of the Tomb Raider = £449
Xbox One X 1TB + Shadow of the Tomb Raider + FIFA 19 = £399

Currys
Xbox One S 1TB + Game Pass = £249
Xbox One S 1TB + Game Pass + FIFA 19 = £239
Xbox One S 1TB + extra controller = £229
Xbox One S 1TB + extra controller +  FIFA 19 = £229
Xbox One S 1TB + Minecraft = £249
Xbox One S 1TB + Minecraft +  FIFA 19 = £229
Xbox One S 1TB + Forza Horizon 4 = £229
Xbox One S 1TB + Forza Horizon 4 +  FIFA 19 = £229
Xbox One X 1TB + PUBG = £449
Xbox One X 1TB + PUBG + extra controller + FIFA 19 = £449
Xbox One X 1TB + Forza Horizon 4 = £449
Xbox One X 1TB + Forza Horizon 4 + extra controller + FIFA 19 = £449

Great to see the Playstation 4 version to be the best selling one! #BestPlaceToPlay

Wouldn't be surprised if this was the last Fifa game from EA for the Switch.

I would be surprised.

Fifa 18 sold 1 million on the Switch. That's one-third of Xbox One's 3 million and more than PS3 (0.5) and Xbox360 (0.25) combined. It also had a similar opening in the UK at 8,000 compared to Xbox's 0.3 million and PS4's 0.5 million. It's possible that global sales decrease or that 1 million sales aren't profitable enough to port/localize it, but both seem unlikely. The Switch's userbase continues to grow suggesting that sales will increase and if EA still produced Fifa 19 versions for PS3 and Xbox360 after the low sales for Fifa 18 on both of them it suggests that those sales are enough to be profitable.
