The Outer Worlds will launch for Nintendo Switch on June 5, 2020

Private Division and Obsidian Entertainment have announced that The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch will launch on June 5, 2020. The port was originally set to release on March 6 before COVID-19 concerns impacted production.

As stated when it was delayed, the retail Nintendo Switch version will include the game on a cartridge, but there will be a 6 GB day-one patch the offers hi-res textures, gameplay optimizations, and other fixes.

We've shared the announcement post from Obsidian below. The Outer Worlds originally released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via EGS in October 2019. A Steam version expected to launch later this year.
