The Outer Worlds For Nintendo Switch Delayed Due To Coronavirus

The Outer Worlds Nintendo Switch Release Date Revealed

Folks out there looking forward to the upcoming Nintendo Switch port for The Outer Worlds will have to wait just a bit longer. Publisher Private Division announced today that The Outer Worlds port for the Nintendo Switch has officially been delayed, not to give the team extra time for needed polish, but due to the increasing threat of the coronavirus.

Private Division took to Twitter today to release a statement regarding the delay of The Outer Worlds port for the Nintendo Switch. According to the publisher, the delay was due to the coronavirus “impacting the Virtuos team working on the port,” and that they would need more time to finish development. Private Division also announced in the same Tweet that the port will now be getting a physical release via cartridge.

The publisher then clarified its previous post by stating that the team at Virtuos “is ok,” but the developer’s office has remained closed due to the threat from the virus. Private Division closes its statement by saying that more information and an updated timeline for the Switch release will be forthcoming “shortly.” We at DFTG hope the team at Virtuos remains healthy and the situation resolves itself promptly and without further incident.

The Outer Worlds is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with a Nintendo Switch port currently in development.
