After already failing to release alongside other versions of the game in October last year, The Outer Worlds for Switch has now been delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Private Division, the publisher who is handling the release, explained on Twitter how Virtuos – the talented team working on the game's Nintendo port – needed more time to "finish" development. All of the team are safe and sound, but during this period certain Virtuos offices have been closed.
On a positive note, as you've probably read above, the Switch version will now be receiving a physical release on cartridge. This follows on from an announcement the game would be launching before the end of March, and that it would only include a digital download code.
Virtuos isn't the only video game company that's been impacted by the coronavirus so far. At the end of last month we heard how Nintendo Switch production had been affected, and just yesterday we found out shipments of the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch would be pushed back.
When we hear about the new launch date for this upcoming release, we'll be sure to let you know.
