    Just a week after publisher Private Division revealed the release date of The Outer Worlds for the Nintendo Switch, the company has walked back that announcement, and has instead delayed the game. This is due to the Coronavirus outbreak, which has impacted Studio Virtuos, who is working on the port. To compensate for the delay, the publisher has decided to release the game, which was scheduled to be digital-only, on physical cartridges.

    atleast a good news, a good delay is always better specialy if it stops it from being a code in a box, if its complete on cart i will get it.

    Swings and roundabouts I guess. Here's hoping the guys at Studio Virtuos are alright.

    Release on cartridge... an unexpected positive side effect of the pandemic.

    Good on them for taking on board the feedback on the game being digital only. When I buy a physical game, I want to own that game, not download a game with a license.

    A delayed game is eventually good and coronavirus negative, but a rushed game is forever bad because it's tainted with coronavirus -Shigeru Miyamoto

    She said, It's not now or never
    Wait ten years, we'll be together.

    I said, Better late than never
    Just don't make me wait forever.


    Well, for all of us nomads who have poor WiFi and data caps, this will be a plus, having the cart, should I decide to get it.

    He's talking about switch ports, not PS4 ports, the quantity of delayed PS4 games is irrelevant for the question that he asked.

    BUT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT SWITCH PORTS, HE DIDN'T EVEN MENTION THE PS4
    HE WAS TALKING ABOUT SWITCH PORTS ESPECIFICALLY
    NOT PS4 PORTS
    DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?

    Since the game carts are made in China and are coated with that yucky stuff, I wouldn't recommend go licking the carts just out of curiosity to see what it tastes like.
    Just like food labels, "Item may contain traces of Corona".
    Be careful, be safe.
