A big question posed to developers is whether or not third party games will sell on the Nintendo Switch. Developers and publishers got burned with the Wii U, but it seems like the Switch is a different story so far. 2K is reportedly “very pleased” with sales of their recent title, NBA 2K18, on the hybrid system.
In addition to versions for X-Box, PlayStation, and PC, NBA 2K18 is our debut offering for the Nintendo Switch. So far, we’re very pleased with the title’s performance on this new platform and we anticipate continued strong demand across all platforms heading into the holiday season. Along with growth in game sales, our NBA 2K series continues to benefit from increasing engagement and recurrent consumer spending.
Sports games have great potential on the Switch. Having a home console experience, with the ability to play two-player, portably, straight out of the box, is something no other company is offering.
