The Private Division has tweeted that the excellent The Outer Worlds on the Nintendo Switch will be delayed due to the coranavirus. The virus is impacting work at Virtuos who are in charge of the Nintendo Switch port. That is because their office is currently closed. The company has also decided to release the game on cartridge, rather than just supply a download code as initially reported. A new launch date for The Outer Worlds on Nintendo Switch will come soon.
So glad there’s a physical version on the cards.
Be strong, and kick that virus in the arse.
They aren’t directly effected, they just can’t go to work because their building is closed. What’s actually a problem is that they are a generally small team and are either A. Not getting paid because they aren’t working or B. The studio is bleeding money as they don’t want their employees to not get their food/bill money. Porting studios general don’t have that much money to begin with, so that actually does matter.
Listen to you. Ya fkn maggot. Id love to wipe u off the planet
Animal Crossing Switches are delayed too.
Thanks Coronavirus for bringing in physical copies
I bet that’s the *one* thing we can thank it for. In every other case, it can go to hell.
When I read about the virus weeks ago, I knew this would happen. It’s going to get worse I bet.
This is actually good news overall and I’ll probably double dip now
Glad to hear they are doing a proper cartridge version now. Was going to pass on it before this news
Health comes before anything, so it’s good to see they’re trying to look after their employees rather than force them through the development with the threat of possibly contracting the virus. If it means a delay and an actual physical copy, I am happy with that!
I think everyone is confused. It’s not getting a physical release because of the coronavirus but because it’s a physical release that they can’t risk shipping them out out of fear the coronavirus might spread through the production of the physical carts getting into the hands of others outside of the infected areas. Least that’s my assumption as to why the delay.
On second thought, I’m an idiot. *facepalm* I don’t know how infectious this virus is & if it can survive for long periods of time outside of the human body. The halt in production most likely has more to do with factory workers not being allowed to work at their jobs for fear the virus will spread between co-workers than any fear of the virus being spread through physical objects. Still, I doubt the virus is responsible for a physical release of the game as that’s just silly. You’d think going digital & not doing a physical release would be the course of action during a viral outbreak, not the other way around.
You are brain dead. A serious re tard
