Apex Legends Nintendo Switch reveal: Big release date news teased for EA Play 2020

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date news might be one of the big announcements at EA Play 2020. We are just hours away from finding out what EA has planned for its big annual event, with new versions of popular franchises expected to be revealed. So we’re likely to see trailers for FIFA 21, Madden 21 as well as more on the recently revealed Star Wars Squadrons.

But one-in-the-know journalist has also predicted we could be getting Nintendo Switch news on Apex Legends.

In a post online VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb gave their picks for what could be announced during EA Play 2020 this week.

And Grubb predicted that there may be some Apex Legends news in store for Nintendo Switch fans.

Grubb wrote: “During a recent conference call with investors, EA noted that it was looking more seriously at supporting the Switch.

“That could take many forms. But at the very least, it should mean Apex Legends making the leap to the Nintendo hybrid home console/handheld.

“I would like to see EA shadow-drop some older games on the Switch, but who knows how much work that entails. A game like Apex Legends could make money for years, though.”

The comments that Grubb referred to were made back in May by EA chief executive officer Andrew Wilson.

The EA bigwig said: “And we’re also planning to deliver for more Nintendo fans with multiple EA games set to launch on Nintendo Switch this year”.

Apex Legends was first released back on the PS4, Xbox One and for Windows PCs in February 2019.

And ever since then there’s been calls for a Switch version as well as a mobile edition of the hit battle royale shooter for iOS and Android.

Speaking back in April last year, Apex Legends project lead Drew McCoy said developers Respawn had heard demands from players for a Nintendo Switch version.

At the time McCoy said: “If Switch was coming, we would tell you and we would blast it across the world.

“We are hearing all the Switch players who say they want the game. I can’t make any promises right now.

“We have a lot of things that we’re working on, so stay tuned for anything in the future. But currently we don’t have anything to announce.”

If you want to tune in to EA Play to see if there is any Apex Legends news, then the action kicks off at midnight UK time on Friday June 19.
