Recently, President of Nintendo Shuntaro Furukawa has come out and stated that the company is expecting Switch supply disruption to continue into 2022.
Despite the Nintendo Switch selling well and is on track to outsell the Wii (Nintendo’s best selling console) next year, Furukawa is concerned that the company won’t be able to meet consumer demands next year.
The supply issue is caused by the global semiconductor shortage and the ongoing pandemic causing logistical delays.
Previously Intel CEO, Pat Gelsinger said that they are expecting the chip shortage to go on till 2023, reported Nikkei Asia.
This is not the first time the Japanese multinational warned of the possibility of a supply shortage. In a financial report released early last month, the company lowered its Switch sales forecast down to 24 million units from 25.5 million.
