An analyst is predicting that Nintendo will skip the Switch Pro & release a next-gen console in 2024

An old year has ended and a new year has begun, which means that GamesIndustry’s panel of various gaming industry analysts are back to review last year’s predictions for the gaming industry and make some new ones. We’ve already reported about the Mario Kart remarks made by Dr. Serkan Toto of Kantan Games, but that’s not the only noteworthy thing to come from the analysts.

Piers Harding-Rolls of Ampere Analysis said that ‚ÄúNintendo Switch family of devices will once again be the best-selling consoles in 2022 at around 21 million sold to consumers, aided by the release of Switch OLED. I’m not expecting a Switch Pro in 2022. We have a next-gen Nintendo console in our forecasts for late 2024, so I’m not convinced a ‘Pro’ model is going to appear at all”.
