The Outer Worlds On Nintendo Switch's Release Date Window Narrowed Down

The game could release on Switch as early as January 2020.


Though we still don't have an exact date, Take-Two Interactive has provided a release window for the Switch version of The Outer Worlds. The Outer Worlds is currently only available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. On Xbox One and PC, The Outer Worlds is available via Game Pass.

In the company's latest quarterly earnings report, Take-Two writes that The Outer Worlds will "be available for Nintendo Switch in calendar 2020, during our fiscal year 2020." That limits the Switch port to sometime between January and March in 2020, so unless there's a scheduling change, you can expect The Outer Worlds to release on Switch fairly soon.

The next patch for the current versions of The Outer Worlds addresses several in-game bugs and implements some welcome changes--such as an increase to subtitle font sizes. The patch is currently scheduled to release in The Outer Wilds sometime between November 10-16.

In GameSpot's The Outer Worlds review, Edmond Tran wrote, "I finished The Outer Worlds wanting more, eager to jump back into the world to see extra things. It's not a short game, but it's one packed with such a steady stream of wonderful characters to meet, interesting places to explore, and meaningful, multi-layered quests to solve, that it didn't feel like there was any room to get tired of it. I wanted to rewind the clock and do everything in a completely different way. The Outer Worlds is consistently compelling throughout, and it's a superb example of how to promote traditional RPG sensibilities in a sharp, modern experience."
