Good news: No Frostbite. Bad news: no indoor games.

FIFA will continue to take the Switch pitch this year, but in a relegated form.

Electronic Arts have confirmed a FIFA 20 Legacy Edition will release on Switch September 27, the same day as the regular release for the other platforms. The "Legacy Edition" moniker, applied to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions last year, means the same modes and core gameplay as the previous FIFA 19, but with updated rosters.

The Switch version of FIFA 20 will not run on EA's Frostbite engine, as with prior years. and will not include a new indoor soccer mode similar to the FIFA Street series.

EA is LITERALLY the worst.

This seems like such the disrespectful lazy catch 22

Switch isn't worth the effort... it's owners will buy whatever we put out... we'll just update last years version...
and then
Switch version didn't sell nearly as good as the other systems versions, so we're not gonna put all the effort into getting the same versions out.... (see the first part, repeat)

I don't even play 95% of sports games, but does 2k make Soccer games?

If the only difference between this version and '19 is the roster, couldn't a roster update be DLC for '19? Or would that make too much sense?

Can't sell a roster update DLC for full price.

Yeah they can, it's called FIFA 20: Legacy Edition.
