A new release date has been handed to the Switch version of Obsidian Entertainment’s sci-fi RPG, The Outer Worlds.

After initially being set for release on March 6, The Outer Worlds will now arrive on Switch June 5.

The game was delayed due to the coronavirus impacting the Virtuos team working on the port.

We wanted to share an exciting update that we plan on launching The Outer Worlds for the Nintendo Switch on June 5th, 2020. As we prepare for another arrival of new colonists, we have some very important information for those making this journey, specifically for you colonists who prefer your goods in physical form: The retail version The Outer Worlds comes on a physical cartridge, and it will be accompanied by a day one patch that could be up to 6 GB. This patch will optimize gameplay, provide additional hi-res textures, and include other fixes to provide the employees of Halcyon with the best gameplay experience. Please ensure you have planned accordingly and have available space necessary for the patch.

The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch will retail for $59.99 digitally and physically.

The game released in October last year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and the game quickly exceeded publisher expectations by shipping over 2 million units.

If you plan on picking it up for Switch or are just getting started on any version, give our guide the once over for tips and walkthroughs for saving the Halcyon colony.
