Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division announced today that The Outer Worlds is also headed to Nintendo Switch in addition to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, arriving at some point after the original release on those platforms. Nintendo's UK website currently shows a 2019 release window, so maybe the wait won't be too long.
While maybe not quite as out-of-left-field as the announced Switch release for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it's still an exciting announcement for Western RPG fans who are interested in trying out newer games on the hybrid console. Obsidian also uploaded a short feature discussing the Switch version of the game and the partnership with Virtuos, who had previously assisted with Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age's Switch release. Take a listen below:
We actually had asked about the chances of a Switch release back during E3 2019 in our interview with Leonard Boyarsky, who were coy at the time about the possibility, but we did get a few other interesting details about the game in case you missed it. The Outer Worlds will first release on October 25.
