If you've been looking forward to playing the Obsidian RPG Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire on the Nintendo Switch, you might want to read on.

After a confirmation the game was coming to the Nintendo Switch way back in 2018, followed by a delay, publisher Versus Evil has apparently cancelled the title for this platform. This information was shared over on the Versus Evil Discord channel on 27th February 2022 (via r/NintendoSwitch).

"Unfortunately, after much deliberation, we have decided not to move forward with Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire for the Nintendo Switch.”

This news follows on from an announcement in February last year, when the publisher stopped releasing patches for the Switch version of the first game, Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition, despite unresolved issues which the publisher blamed on the hardware.
