Outer World Switch release delayed due to coronavirus

The Outer Worlds Switch release has been delayed due to the novel coronavirus, Private Division has recently confirmed. As part of the delay, the physical version will actally be physical, shipping on a cartridge rather than as a coupon for a download code.

“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 announced via tweet. “We’ll now be releasing the physical version on cartridge. Once we have a new launch date, we’ll let you know!”

As you can see, a new release date hasn’t been named as yet; the Switch version of The Outer Worlds was originally scheduled for March 2020.

The Outer Worlds is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. It’s also on Xbox Game Pass if you’re keen to play now.
