Wow, an EA game on the Switch that's not FIFA or an adopted indie? What's the catch?
There's no catch. EA simply accepted that Switch is here to stay. They already released Burnout Paradise in June and you can expect more ports of old games to follow after Hot Pursuit.
It's not like EA will ever support Switch in a high-profile way, but the times of EA clinging to the hope that Switch will ultimately still fail are a thing of the past.
