The Outer Worlds is coming to Switch sooner than we expected

The Outer Worlds may just be one of the best games of the year, a lean and mean role-playing game with plenty of chances to prove that you have the gift of gab.

Home to not only a raft of Nintendo-made exclusives but a range of small team hits (Celeste, Dead Cells, Gorogoa, Undertale) and big publisher releases (Bayonetta 2, The Witcher 3, Dragon Quest XI, Civilization VI), the Nintendo Switch is welcoming another high-profile launch in the first few months of 2020.

The Outer Worlds is available for PC on the Epic Games Store and for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

Based on the massive push on microtransaction-heavy live service titles we have seen in recent years, one would think there is no market left for games like the ones Obsidian makes. Although Obsidian is now owned by Microsoft the deal was already in place, and now Take-Two gets to add another feather to their cap.

At another point during the call, Take-Two said that sales of the game have exceeded expectations.

Take-Two Interactive, the company that holds The Outer World's publisher, Private Division, as a subsidiary, shared with investors and analysts during a financial conference call that the game has been performing well with critical praise and its high volume of sales.

We still haven't seen anything from the Nintendo Switch version of The Outer Worlds, but if Private Division is looking to have it out before the end of March, we should see some gameplay videos coming down the pipeline.
