“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.
