Publisher Private Division announced they will be delaying the release of The Outer Worlds on Nintendo Switch due to the development team’s office being closed because of the Coronavirus. This delay will not only ensure the safety of the porting team, but it will also give them time to get the game on a physical cartridge. The Switch release was previously scheduled for March 6.
The publisher adds that the team at Virtuos is each okay and in good health, but their offices are closed during this time. They will update fans on a new launch date at a later time.
In The Outer Worlds, the player will take on the role of a mysterious character who happens to be lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy. The character awakens decades later, and it’s from then on that the player will have to explore a space colony that isn’t all that safe to be in as multiple factions fight for control of it. The player can decide to choose the path they want to take, whether they want to be a hero, rebel, or even an anti-hero.
