The platform holder aims to produce about 10% more Switch units in 2020 than it did in 2019, when it manufactured some 20 million, parts suppliers reportedly informed of its plans told Nikkei.

Devs talk about Developing under Covid conditions.

Massively so and probably very similar to how people all over the globe are being affected. Mechanically, getting everyone in to a position to Work From Home was the simple part for us, we do allow staff to work from home already when it helps them with their work/life balance. However the extra steps required to communicate successfully, and critically for a game developer the ability to collaborate, is massively slowed down.

As soon as we were alerted that the virus was more dangerous than initially thought, we decided to all leave the office. This was before the official lockdown. Since then, everybody (around 30 people) is working from home.

We’ve had lots of people working from home with the general strikes in December 2019 where public transport was gone [Ed. note: DotEmu is based in Paris], so we can say that we were all ready for it.

So our work seems to be generally unaffected by the situation so far. It’s just a bit weird but our team adapted very quickly.
