The Sims 5 on Nintendo Switch
EA and Maxis’ has not announced any significant effort to release The Sims 5 for the Nintendo Switch. The game publisher is taking a careful approach when bringing its game to the console, especially during Switch’s first year.
However, EA might have changed their mind after the company made an announcement at EA Play Live last month. The game developers mentioned that seven of its IPs are arriving in the console within the next year. Some games for the console are Apex Legends, Burnout Paradise, and possibly The Sims 4.
Bringing The Sims 4 to Switch could be a well-received decision on EA’s part. However, fans are questioning the possibility, given the huge file size of the game and its expansion. EA is obviously making a plan related to this issue.
