The Much-Anticipated Nintendo Switch RPG Has Been Officially Canceled

Long-Awaited Nintendo Switch RPG Officially Cancelled

It has been announced that the long-awaited Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and Nintendo Switch OLED RPG, which had been delayed numerous times, would not be released. Several of the top role-playing games from the last decade or two are now available on the Nintendo Switch. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Skyrim, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 are just a few of the games available on Nintendo Switch.

These are most likely the three finest role-playing games released in the previous ten years. However, one game that hardcore RPG fans of the genre on the Nintendo Switch have been waiting for is Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire from Obsidian Entertainment, the studio best known for games such as Fallout: New Vegas, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Neverwinter Nights 2, Alpha Protocol, and The Outer Worlds. When it comes to role-playing games, Obsidian is a studio on the order of Mount Rushmore. And some of its most notable achievements have come from its work on Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and its predecessor, Pillars of Eternity.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire made its debut on the PC in 2018 and received an 88 on Metacritic, making it one of the highest-rated games of the year at the time of release. Two years later, the game was released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In the beginning, it was expected that the RPG would be released for Nintendo Switch in 2018. However, it was later postponed until 2019. Then, in August of this year, publisher Versus Evil suggested that a Switch version be released “soon.” Since then, nothing but crickets have been heard, at least until today.

“Unfortunately, after considerable discussion, we have chosen not to proceed with Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire for the Nintendo Switch,” Versus Evil said on the company’s official Discord channel. “We apologize for any inconvenience.”

The game’s predecessor is now accessible on the Nintendo Switch, as you may be aware. However, if Switch fans want to follow the series through to the end, they will need to use a PC, a PlayStation 4, a PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, or an Xbox Series X.
