The Nintendo Switch is a big success at the moment, so big that Nintendo has doubled production and analysts are now expecting the console to sell 8 million units during its first 13 months.

And while there are a lot of third party Switch games in the pipeline (mostly from indie developers), overall it seems that the console hasn’t caught on with a lot of developers.

A recent survey at the Game Developers Conference, which surveyed 4,500 developers, revealed that only 3% are working on a Switch game. PC and smartphones led the survey, with 53% and 38%, respectively.

In fact, more developers said they were working on Apple TV games (4%) than the Switch (3%), which ended up dead last on the survey.

Of course, there is a reasonable explanation for this: the Switch has just been released and many are taking a wait-and-see approach. It’s also quite possible that many developers are just getting used to the Switch and its development environment, before committing to making games on it.
