The Outer Worlds Switch Release Delayed Due to Coronavirus, but There’s a Silver Lining

Apparently, the entire studio working on the port has temporarily closed its offices

Just a week after we announced that The Outer Worlds was coming to Nintendo Switch this March, the company has peddled back and say that the game has been delayed without any hint as to how long the delay will be.

Fortunately, nobody at any of the company’s studios have been affected by the virus, so this is more of a preventative measure than anything else. So far, there isn’t word on an updated release plan, but it does look like the game will actually be released on a physical cartridge – a big and unexpected change as the original plan included only digital sales with physical copies being sold as download codes only. It’s cool that it will now come on a cartridge, but we’re guessing this is the result of negative feedback from the original announcement.

We’ve reach out to Private Division, the studio responsible for the Switch port of the game, for comment but have yet to hear back. If and when we received word about a new release date, we’ll be sure to update you accordingly.
