The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch delayed due to coronavirus; surpasses two million units sold on PS4/XB1/PC

Private Division has announced via Twitter that The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch has been delayed due to coronavirus concerns impacting Virtuos Games, the China-based team handling the port. The Switch port was originally set to launch on March 6, but now it will come at some date in the future.

Alongside the delay, however, Private Division announced that the retail release will now include the game on a cartridge, instead of a download code.


The Tweet reads:

We’re delaying @OuterWorlds on Nintendo Switch due to the coronavirus impacting the Virtuos team working on the port, to provide them enough time to finish development. We’ll now be releasing the physical version on cartridge. Once we have a new launch date, we’ll let you know!

Take-Two, the parent company of Private Division, also released its Q3 fiscal results today and announced during the following conference call that The Outer Worlds has surpassed 2 million units sold worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via EGS.
