The Outer Worlds

Publisher Private Division has delayed the Switch version of developer Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds from its recently announced March 6 release date to an unannounced date.

“We’re delaying The Outer Worlds on Nintendo Switch due to the coronavirus impacting the Virtuos team working on the port, to provide them enough time to finish development,” Private Division said in a tweet. “We’ll now be releasing the physical version on cartridge. Once we have a new launch date, we’ll let you know!”

The Outer Worlds first launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25, 2019.
