EA announced FIFA 20 yesterday, followed by a one-line blurb about FIFA 20 Legacy Edition coming to Switch. We all knew that meant a watered-down, barely updated experience as soon as the press release came out. Today, FIFA 20 executive producer Aaron McHardy talked a bit more about the Switch version in a Eurogamer interview.
"You're gonna get a fresh new look in Switch, with kits and player lists and all of that, but you're not going to be getting Volta or any of the big new features."
Two years after putting in at least some effort with the Switch version of FIFA, EA appears to be throwing in the towel. That's it for FIFA parity moving forward, right?
"I wouldn't say it's the end [of parity], necessarily for Switch, we don't know what the future holds. We're always trying to build Switch to the device, and make it the best we can with the power that's on that device that was given to us, and I think that philosophy will stay true. Where it goes in the future, we don't know."
