Mass Effect Andromeda‘s producer, Michael Gamble has shut down any ideas of the game launching on the new Nintendo Switch console.
“Yeah, not right now, no,” he told Stevivor, “We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that.”
Over the holiday period a number of lovely, but fake, pack shots for games for the Switch circulated around in the internet, exciting the less observant.
Gamble also said the game will play up to the strengths of the PlayStation 4 Pro, but with the Xbox Scorpio just a glint in Microsoft’s eye, they have “absolutely no plans right now,” for a version for that console.
Mass Effect Andromeda will launch this March, which is also the rumoured launch window for the Switch. We will find out further details in a Nintendo Direct livestream on January 14th at 4am UK time. Well I say ‘we’, I’ll be in bed, you can stay up if you want.
